The earlier sunsets and the dynamic weather lately haven’t provided me with many chances to get out for sunset. Sunset on Tuesday afternoon was an exception – running out of the office early for an appointment, I noticed an incredible rainbow over the Custom House as seen from the parking lot of People’s United Bank. Of course I grabbed my camera and headed towards my appointment, but first made sure that I was able to make a stop on Congress Street to capture this scene.

The grounds of Strawbery Banke in the fall might be one of the most perfectly New England scenes you could come across. The rich colors of the grass, the homes, the trees and the sky combine for a sight worth stopping for, just as I did this morning not long after sunrise.

Digging back once again through the archives and finding some stuff that I really like – and approaching it with a fresh eye and a different mindset on processing. It’s brought some refreshing clean light to the homes along the waterfront in the south end in this shot from the fall of 2009. It seems like eons ago in my photographic adventure….and I’m glad I took the time to venture back. Hope you all enjoy…stay tuned in over the weekend for a couple fresh scenes never before featured here at The Daily Portsmouth!

For once I think I managed to make a tugboat scene less about the tugboats than the other elements in the frame. In this shot, the deck of the Old Ferry Landing, The Tugboats, the freighter in the background and the Middle Bridge in the distance all make for relevant subjects in the shot…creating the wonderful sense of place that only The Decks can command on Portsmouth’s waterfront – but for me, it’s more about the natural elements of water, the setting sun, and the clouds and how all of them are interacting. It’s important to find yourself in the right place at the right time…or (more accurately) to put yourself there. That becomes an easy thing when you love where you live, and the weather agrees with you (in this case it was a fall shot where the temperatures didn’t require gloves, earmuffs, etc.).

The fleeting rays of the afternoon sunlight appear on the clocktower of the North Church. The blues of the late afternoon sky were a nice subtle contrast to the rich orange of the late afternoon sunlight. The textures and all the nooks and crannies of the clocktower of the North Church made for another interesting take on a familiar angle that I’ve posted time and time again. Sometimes I can’t help myself in shooting the familiar all over again, when new colors and moods present themselves.
