After checking out the Sunken Forest in Rye, I took the long way home and drove along the coastline. As I drove back, these awesome clouds continued to form and move over the ocean just off the shoreline – and when I got to one of my favorite spots, I had to stop to take a few shots. I never get sick of the natural beauty we get to enjoy here on New Hampshire’s seacoast.

As the weather forecast calls for more “wintry mix” and March is just around the corner, it’s important to remember that summer will be back here in the seacoast someday. It’s almost hard to imagine with all the snow and salty slush still on the ground that it ever gets warm enough to enjoy a dip in the ocean here in New Hampshire.
Sometimes I have to remind myself that more exciting weather and conditions are on their way, despite my love and appreciation for winter. This shot was taken at sunset in Rye, New Hampshire at Pirate’s Cove beach. No matter what the season, I always love visiting this little slice of oceanfront thanks to its accessibility, beauty, and horizon.

The cloud don’t seem to be around when I’ve been able to get out for sunset lately, but the oceanfront light and the gentle waves made for a memorable evening in Rye.

One of the benefits of the changing seasons is the movement of light. The sun sets at a different angle in the winter than in the summer, and on this particular evening, the horizon was light with the last rays of the day’s sunlight in a way that perfectly complimented the shoreline. The cool and crisp air helped to bring atmosphere into the shot with the different tones of color in the sky.

A chilly drive along the coast rewarded us with some beautiful seascape shots this weekend. The wind was so strong that each of the waves gave off a head of mist as it began to break rolling towards the coastline. I love this shot as the freighter is hiding out in the background on the horizon, just before it made its way up the Piscataqua to unload.
