Brant Rock (Marshfield, MA)

It’s the time of the year again when hearty New Englanders hunker down and storm the stores for candles, batteries and, of course, bread and water.  Yes, hurricane season is upon us.  However, this recent stormy weather from Saturday, as bad as it may have been, was not a hurricane.

Waves as high as 7 feet crashed down in some parts.  Although it was not a hurricane or a Nor’Easter, the wind was strong enough to push you and your car around and the waves spilled over the sea wall in some parts.

Weather like this really puts you in your place.  We are no match for Mother Nature.

It was almost impossible to keep my lens dry and clear which spoiled some of my shots. I decided to post them anyways.

The waves crashing along the rocks gave a hypnotic effect.

If not for my ocean soaked clothes, being pelted by sand and the whipping wind, I could have stayed all day.  It reminded me of how some things that are so beautiful can be so dangerous.

Of course, Brant Rock wasn’t the only place hit by this storm.  Stay tuned for my next stormy destination.

About New England Nomad

Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog. I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog. Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts. I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much. I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well. The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things. Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England! View all posts by New England Nomad
