IMAGES FROM THE 21STThis was the morning of the day we got 14 inches of snow.

Waves were waist to head high and glassy.

The air temp was about 5, the water low 40's. Made for some great sea-smoke on the water.

Guys would go out, catch 4 or 5 waves, and run back to their cars.

GULF OF MAINE Pulled this image from the GoMOOS (Gulf of Maine Ocean Observing System) website. A great resource for swell and ocean information. Unfortunately they are removing some of their buoys due to funding shortfalls.

From her statement,
"My pictures over recent years engage traditions of landscape, seascape, and architectural photography. Working with a large-format camera and historic process (wet-plate collodion), I have concentrated on locations that are close to or directly on the water. At this juncture between land and sea, I explore subject matter in a constant state of transition.

Some beautiful images. Wet-plate collodion is hardcore. More images here.

Similar to my 'Surfer Portraits' I did a few years ago. I worked with a 8x10 inch camera and printed on 'printing-out-paper' toned in gold chloride, a process from the 1880's.More images from my 8x10 surf portfolio here.

GASKET BLOWOUTMy newly installed gasket decided to blow out, and rip in the process.

Draining the oil.

Dropped drain plug into the bucket of oil.

Blowout in upper-right corner.

It takes a week to order another gasket, so I smeared it with gasket sealer and stuck it back together as best I could.
