Because It's There: The Bass Harbor Lighthouse in the Mist.

February 04, 2013  •  2 Comments

Bass Harbor Lighthouse January Mist. 149 seconds at f/7.1 iso 100 17mm on 17-40L 5D 2.

Ayuh- so last Friday I was lamenting about getting nailed in the face by three fire hydrants worth of full blast seawater after a giant wave leapt up out of the Atlantic to hug me, and my gear. Well this shot was the other time (in the last two months, or years for that matter)- see I usually never get an ocean bath when I don't want one, especially while toting around expensive camera gear, so two times in two months is a ridiculous record that I don't hope to break soon. This time in the photograph above the wave jumped down my back, and I couldn't have been more shocked first at the bucketfull's of ocean that managed to get inside my sweatshirt, and second at how embarrassingly ridiculous of a situation it must have appeared to the rest of the world in the case that anyone cared to be looking. I live around here, grew up on the ocean, I was watching the patterns that day and still I couldn't imagine how so much water could have launched itself onto me at the place where we were set up. Maybe there's an invention of commerce to be found in this lesson? A photographers safety leash or something. Comes in stylish black with red trim for Canon or black with gold trim for you Nikoners, also urban camo for you rooftoppers, and pink- just because. And we could sell them for a bunch because we get to call it "Camera Gear" or "Photography Accessory". Any other good inventions that you guys have thought of (or gals, I say guys referring to include all of you breathren and sistren.) Here's another one of my inventions: "The Beer Bandolier!". Illustrations and description to come...

Have a good one my friendlies and photophiles and be careful out there while you're shooting! -Nate!

Because of the music education, one can learn and understand the latest forms and concepts of music. One can enjoy the serenity of music by learning it. A learner should be passionate about understanding musical theory.
