As i made my way to the left of the Lanescove wall i couldn’t believe how the sky looked,, burning oranges just appeared and i set up quick and took the shot before it was gone
Tag Archives: Good Morning Gloucester
While out walking around taking night photos i turned around and saw this. Had to set up and take the shot. The shadows, light and the lines all came together pretty well.
Can’t wait for summer.. loved everything about this setting, the sky, the marsh , the dingy
The lighting for this shot worked out pretty well. Not sure why i had never photographed this before.
Once I saw the hollowed out skiff I knew it needed to be photographed before someone removed it. Long exposure with soft skies and Magnolia Pier as a backdrop.
Annisquam Lighthouse is one of my favorite places to catch the sunset. Standing in knee deep water just to catch the light and reflection just right.
Sometimes flowers look better while they’re frozen. Black Eyed Susan’s that we’re frozen then photographed
This is a long exposure taken at noon using a piece of weld glass. Magnolia Pier
This is a 3 shot pano that I️ stitched together to create this image. Taken from the coast guard station during the mayors cup during schooner festival. I️ really think it shows Gloucester
This image I️ took in late August at Hammonds Castle , I️ had always wanted to get the Milky Way over the arches. This image won first place at Topsfield Fair professional division in 2017.
Well it’s definitely one of mine,, sometimes I️ wake up early enough to see and capture the beautiful colors just before the sun comes up.. Wednesday mornings sunrise was a beauty. Crazy to think this happened only a few hours before that snow/rain storm passed through.
Good Harbor’s Footbridge
This is another photo I’m extremely proud of , after planning and waiting for 10 days during my lunch breaks and after work I️ finally got the image I️ wanted.. this was captured all in one shot,, this is not a composite by any means..this image won best in show at the Magnolia Library art show in 2016.

This is called a Gudgeon, it attaches to the wooden rudder and attaches through the hole to the pintle.
Brought in by Toby Burnham Aboard The Jupiter II
To get an idea where this would reside on a Schooner or Brig check out our friend Tugster‘s Post here-
Vessel designer Gerald de Weerdt here takes measurements today to attach rudder to hull via pintles and gudgeons.
and this from-
WWII Historian and Shipwreck Researcher
The 158 ton brig Union would have been very similar to this one. This is the 162 ton, 90 feet long, wooden brig Annie Brown, which trading around South Australia from 1875. Source: p. 136 of “Sail in the South” by Ronald Parsons, Wellington, AH & Aw Reed, 1975
A bronze pintle with three through bolts from the 1823 wreck of the 432 ton sailing ship Brampton. The item was recovered by Kelly Tarlton from the wreck site in the Bay of Islands. This item was sold at Webb’s auction no. 862 in November 2002. Note as photographed the pintle is upside down. The Waimahana Bay trademe pintle did not have through bolts but was fastened by rudder nails and lag bolts instead.
More Reading about Gudgeon and Pintles- whats interesting here is this one from
|A Snow Brig. The Mountain Maid was a strongly built wooden snow brig. She had two square rigged masts and a smaller sail called a spanker, behind the main mast.
(Based on a line drawing from Ships Rigs & Rigging, H. A. Underhill. Nautical Press, Glasgow. Colorised by EFL.)
So I contacted my friend Will (Tugster) and he had a more intriguing information and photos to add to this-
Wow! My filing system works, and I located these photos about 5 minutes after I started looking.
The story is this: after a storm in spring (?) 1988, Mike Magnifico–then manager of Salisbury Beach State Reservation/Beach saw this as he was surveying beach erosion. He thought–he said later–those were gold, and the color is not exactly true in the photos. He called the Newburyport Maritime Museum, who called me, because I was Mr. Shipwreck before I was Tugster. I wet to Salisbury Beach, took the photos. A friend is standing in photo 1 to show scale.
I pursued it a while; a maritime archeologist up at Plymouth State (NH) looked it over carefully and declared the pintles made of “yellow metal” but further identification would likely not be possible. Last I knew, almost 30 years ago, Salisbury Beach Reservation kept them rather than donate to the N Maritime Museum.
Exciting. Feel free to post on GMG any text and photos.

Meanwhile, plan on going down to see them for free beer and samples tonight Aug.6th from 5:30 until @ 10 Blackburn Center, Gloucester Ma 01930.
