Spied this over Route 128 on my way home from work. Dirty windshield and strong sun glare I had to darken the image and crop out the sun. That's the only edit to what's probably my worse quality image. I figured some would get a kick out of it so I posted the pic on facebook. A few shares later it's gone world wide! Who would of thunk it?

Why I created this......

Born and raised in Gloucester, Ma fishing gets in your blood. Surrounded by the sea, kids here have a boat almost as much as kids elsewhere have bicycles! As I grew older my fishing ambitions gave way to what's around me. Although I still "drop a line" every so often, my attention wanders to the majesty of the natural light that make this place so special. Never is each day the same. The subjects may be the same but the light from the sea & sky will morph the subject into a form of art. For that reason artists have been drawn to these shores for several hundred years, they followed the light painting and sketching these surroundings. What artists capture with paint on canvas, I attempt to capture with a click.....if I'm lucky!

I guess that's a sort of Fish'n!

Wet and Wild !

I didn't plan on taking any photos this day but after running for an errand I made a swing along the shore line to see what the nasty windy rainy weather had in store. Always with my camera I couldn't resist once I saw the waves. One of these days I'll get a good video camera to also catch the sound. Liquid thunder best describes it as the ground shakes as thousands of pounds of water strike. And every so often almost silence as the spent breaker retreats with the muffled sound of storm worn pebbles and rocks rolling back to the sea.
It wasn't easy taking photos with sideways rain hitting the lens but at least it wasn't snow!

Please keep in mind, I'm using a telephoto lens at a safe distance. Never tempt Mother Nature, she can overwhelm where you think it is safe!

Just plain violent!

A blooming wave burst!

Full bloom!

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
