More Andrews Point from Yesterday 3/12/11

Trying new ways to post photos. This time I made a mistake with Flicker so that the photo is scrunchified in width and relaxes out and pops up in a new window after you click on it . I thought it was kind of weird so I left it that way.

Attempting to capture how the waves really look. Andrews Point has no sand within a mile so the clarity of the water even when waves are pounding is amazing at times. The water is currently at 38 F so the bios are at their nadir too so catching them aqua clear green is easier this time of year. I did punch them up in iPhoto a bit since the sun was not cooperating. Once a year the morning sun gets behind a cloud but lights up the waves as if they glow from within. The sun only does this when my camera is in my closet.

I was down on the edge since there was a nice fat seal lolling in the waves when I arrived. I thought it would be cool to snap a photo of her but as I whipped out the camera she winked and dove. They can hold their breath for 15 minutes and so I waited.  I think she may have been snickering miles away by the time I gave up.

    Very col Paul. What did you use to take those pics?

  2. I agree. Beautiful colors, especially the green on the last one. Did you color enhance these somehow?

  3. Sharon says:

    That bottom shot is amazing, Paul! I couldn’t believe the greens in the water colors yesterday!

    Hi Joey,
    I just wanted to let you know, I enjoy your photographs of the water, waves
    and boats. I’m from Gloucester but live in Delaware, I look forward to GMG sooo
    much. Keep up the good work.
    Thank You, Dini

    Great shots Paul. I love the scrunched one. The colors that day were amazing – and it was such a spring tease day.

  6. Debra Campbell says:

    I love the middle photo – with the pools of water within the rocks – GOOD JOB

  7. Kathleen says:

    I love the first one. They are all beautiful but that first one is a stunner.

  8. I’ll throw in a fun fact on the first shot. There are two navigation buoys in the photo demarcating the opposite ends of the submerged breakwater. In a small boat you can usually cut a buoy by 20-30 feet and be OK but the breakwater really goes right up to these markers and cutting them you might lose a prop at low tide.

    On the very right edge of the photo is red number 2 nun flashing every four seconds marking the end of Avery Ledge which marks the southern end.

    The green number 3 can with gong is in the center of the photo but it marks the northern end of the breakwater. Right at the left end of the above water part is a dog leg turn to that buoy.

    The breakwater is massive but most is not completed and underwater.

    gorgeous shots, thanks for sharing!

    Wonderful shots, Paul. I’m saving them for my art folder on “wave action.”
    Also enjoyed your buoy info.
