Molly Ferrill came down the dock last May. She also did a time lapse video from our dock which you can see below and went out lobstering for a day with Tommy Burns, the same Tommy Burns who took out Ben Grenon. You can see those videos below her latest.
Molly fared a whole lot better than Ben did aboard Tommy’s boat as you will see comparing the two videos.
It’s manual focus, shutter speed 1/13, aperture 4.5, manual iso (400) and there are 335 frames included! I think I had the interval between shots at 5 seconds. Each image is a full-size jpeg, (which I don’t think was actually necessary, especially not for the web!) and I used final cut express software to edit the time lapse. (each frame is .03 seconds long I think). It was one of the first time lapses I have made with the intervalometer but I think it worked out pretty well… next time I will set the interval for a little shorter and take more frames so the final time lapse is a little longer! Oh and by the way, at the end I made the last few shots with longer and longer shutter speeds so that it would gradually fade to white. It wouldn’t have been that drastic at the very end if I hadn’t done that.
LOVE the one you did with the clouds! Gorgeous. It looks just like a time lapse but less jerky which is good for clouds. Very nice!
Here’s a link to a short little video I just made compiling some of the photos and short video clips from going out on the boat.
Lobster Fishing with Tom and Cody!
Pete Mondello sold his old scallop dredge which he long ago sold his permits for to some guys from New Bedford. This meant we needed to get it out of the yard and up over the rail of a pick up truck into it’s bed safely without it coming crashing down and smashing the sides of the truck to bits.
We did it without incident. Video at the bottom.
Here’s an awesome video of a scallop dredge deployed over the side of a boat and working in the ocean from udcshel–
If this actually works without getting jammed up it could be quite revolutionary.
The company contacted me last night. The cost is $2495
Kevin O’Maley and his crew swung by the dock with a Blue Lobster that they caught just off the Breakwater when lobstering today. Being the stand-up men they are, they will be bringing it to The Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center so that the community can enjoy checking it out.
Kevin and the boys also charter their boat for full or half day fishing trips. You can find them online at www.cbcharters.com
Go to the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center to check it out. info here-
Thank You Kevin and crew for bringing the lobster to us to share with our readers.
Captain Chris Orsillo and Mate Steve Redfern bang out a trawl.
What is very encouraging and a testament to the conservation efforts of the lobster industry is how many short lobsters there are that will be there to be harvested as they grow. You can see how many small lobsters get thrown back and it is quite a few, to live and grow for next season’s lobster harvest!
