Yep, that’s right folks! Only 30 days left in this Project 365 of mine! Woo-hoo!  

I really can’t believe I’ve almost made it! How will it end? Weeelllll, you’ll just have to stick around and find out, now won’t you? 😉  

Living in a sea-side town, it is very common to see lobster buoys strung out on fences and on the sides of ramshackle buildings. Where do all these buoys come from? One will never know but they do make for colorful decorations!  

“Lobstah Buoys” (Lobster Trap Buoys) Nikon D300, 50mm, F/8, 1/60s, -0.3EV, ISO 400, Color Efex Pro ‘Cross Processing C04’ Filter

I realized I’ve never stopped to photograph them, so this time I did. Once home, I cross-processed the image in Color Efex Pro to yield a Jaws sort of treatment.  


We may have started out with snow this morning, but boy-oh-boy when the clouds lifted, what a day! 🙂  

"Crash Point" (Waves Crashing Against Rocks with Hospital Point Lighthouse) Nikon D300, 32mm, F/16, 1/400s, ISO 400

The Nor’easter may be gone, but we are still feeling the effects! Our churned up seas continue to pound the rocky shoreline of Beverly Harbor, with Hospital Point Lighthouse standing proudly by, as it has since 1872.   

I could have watched this all day long…

Another spectactularshow at high tide today.

“The Beach is Closed” (High Tide Waves Crashing Over Sea Wall, Lynch Park) Nikon D300, 18mm, F/14, 1/250s, +0.7EV, ISO 500, Silver Efex Pro ‘Dark Sepia’ Filter, Selective Toning

I was so hoping to have this image in raging color but a blah, overcast sky refused to cooperate!

C’est la vie. 🙂

"After the Nor'easter" (High Tide Waves Crashing Against Lynch Park Seawall) Nikon D300, 50mm, F/16, 1/320s, +0.3EV, ISO 640

What the hell is WRONG with me?

That is the question I should have been asking when I jumped off the sea wall, at high tide after a Nor’easter, to get this shot!

Fact of the matter is, I tried all conceivable angles from atop the wall and nothing was properly capturing the power of the incoming tide. The sight was amazing; the sound, deafening.

So there I was, faced with (really) the only choice. All I had to do was jump. 

Yes, I got completely soaked.

Yes, the water was freezing.

And, YES, it was TOTALLY worth it! 😀
