"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! 😀

"Life on the Grid" (Salem Harbor Power Station) Nikon D300, 135mm, F/22, 1/200s, -0.7EV, ISO 640, Color Efex Pro B/W Conversion Filter

A departure from the norm for me today as I don’t usually photograph architectural subjects!

The Salem Harbor Power Plant just seemed particularly photo-worthy with its tall vertical stacks in stark contrast to the ocean water and sunset sky.

I did shoot in color but thought it played better in dramatic black and white.

What do you think?
