More shots from my Sunday morning sunrise adventure. The reflections of the South End are seen in the Piscataqua River from Peirce Island Road, and you can see the newly restored clocktower of the South Ward Meetinghouse (former Children’s Museum) hovering over the rooftops.

I decided to take advantage of great fall weather and being awake before 6am today to head into town to watch (and shoot) the sunrise. This shot of the Mary Prescott Pier ranks as one of my favorites from the morning, with many more to follow. The spoils were well worth the early morning efforts.
Hope you enjoy.

Two of my favorite places on this planet are Portsmouth, NH (which I think you all know), and San Francisco, CA. Both wonderful places to be for any reason – both of which share the ability to host beautiful sunsets. I was lucky to snap both shots featured in today’s post, and as I was going through the archives…each reminded me of the other. One taken along the shores of Prescott Park, the other taken from the Mark Hopkins hotel.
A very happy Thanksgiving to all! I hope you get a chance to enjoy some good food and some quality time with those who are near and dear.

Since it’s nearly Thanksgiving and the fall is well underway, I thought I’d take a moment to remember a warmer time of year….the elusive New Hampshire summer. Along with the warm weather comes beautiful gardens throughout the city – with the gardens at Prescott Park probably being the most visited of the City.
With a New England winter right around the corner, it’s good to remember how beautiful the summer is in this great place.

Harbor Place got a special visitor today, Theodore Too of the TV show Theodore Tugboat. The rather adorable tugboat must be a hit with kids, as while I was snapping this shot I heard a very happy camper excited to see it from his parents car as they were driving by. Stop by to check it out…
Meanwhile, I took a shot of the main entrance to Harbor Place…where you’ll find local firms Wiggin & Nourie as well as the new home of the Portsmouth Museum of Fine Art. I hope to have another post up soon from my recent visit to the PMFA.
