Elliot's photograph a masterpiece

Sean Elliot's photograph, "Maritime Traffic Jam," (Jan 24) is, in the truest sense, wonderful!

I know, for most awesome photos, such as Mr. Elliot's, the photographer must be in the right place at the right time; clearly he was. Nonetheless, to me, his photo is a masterpiece captured with perfect timing. The magnificent USCG Eagle, juxtaposed with the Virginia-class submarine USS California, a technological marvel, seems to receive an imaginary salute from the venerable Ledge Light pictured in the foreground - absolutely inspiring.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Mr. Elliot last month. I told him how much I love his photography and in this letter I've taken the opportunity to tell The Day's editors and The Day's readers as well.

That picture makes me proud to be an American and also proud to be a citizen of southeastern Connecticut, especially Groton.
