RoboCop Appears to be Thawing – Will he get free in time?

Caught in a wicked storm RoboCop had frozen solid within the ice. Now he could feel the sun and his energy was recharging. Soon he will break free to wreak  justice on the not so innocent…His prayers have been answered.  Little does he know another storm is already fast approaching which could prolong his confinement!!

Frank McCall Lanes Cove Storm Video II

Hi Joey,

I took another walk to Lanes Cove after I finished my shoveling today. The water level was higher than yesterday’s high tide and the breakwater had quite a bit more splash-over. If you watch carefully, you will see water pouring through the breakwater as well. I could not stand in the same place where I took my video yesterday because that location was underwater!

Essex – A Front Rolls Through

About 3:45 on Friday, a front rolled through the area providing menacing clouds, incredible spots of sunlight and snow showers in the sky that melted before they hit the ground. Just incredible! Glad to live on Cape Ann and be able to see capture a few scenes like these.  Click the images for larger view

Yesterday’s clouds

Yesterday afternoon I drove from Rhode Island back up to Gloucester, and stopped several times to take photos of the clouds. In my photography workshop this afternoon at The Hive, I will be explaining (among other things) the techniques I used to bring out the contrast and detail in these photos.

Sandy downtown

I took a stroll down Main Street to Stacy Boulevard and back at around 1:30PM, and although more than half of the stores are closed, we were mostly just getting wind and light rain at that point.  The sea wasn’t even that choppy by the Fisherman’s Memorial. People were walking their dogs and driving around as usual.

A few bigger waves here and there, but nothing spectacular.

Joan of Arc is looking at the sky, saying to the storm, “Go ahead, make my day!”

Two hours later, the wind and rain are getting stronger…

Bass Rock’s Motel Roof ends up on 13th Green

Part of the Roof blew off in Thursday’s storm, and also up-rooted a tree on the 13th green at Bass Rocks Golf Course.  Some Golfers were happy the tree is gone, but Tracey the owner of the motel was not thrilled about the roof.   Click on photos to enlarge.
