Sometimes nature has a funny way of making you pay attention. This evening had an incredible sunset in the other direction – but the fiery eyes loomed large over the waterfront and I was mesmerized.

It’s quiet now, but the dock at Harbour Place on the waterfront of the Piscataqua can be host to some impressive boats during the warmer months. I was walking around to scope out the latest updates on the deconstruction of the Memorial Bridge when I admired the lighting in the scene you see above. The rich red brick against the wooden floorboardss were inviting, along with the depth conveyed in the shadows. I love all of the hidden gem spots in Portsmouth.

What a difference a week makes! Last week we were reminded that winter is still officially here with a nice snow storm, which dumped 10 or so inches of snow around the seacoast. This week, we are eyeing temperatures that are predicted to climb into the 60s, a reminder that spring is only around the corner.
My favorite part of winter is the moment when the skies clear and all the trees and fresh snow are still serenely undisturbed – it’s best when this is the morning after the storm and the skies are richly blue. The sky is a bit ominous still in this shot of the Great Cove Boat Club, but it’s better than nothing.

I am a math nerd, so my obsession with angles and symmetry are no mystery. The opposing lines and angles in so many places make this photo even more fun. I have always enjoyed the colors of the wooden walkway and the richly painted benches that line it, throw in a glowing window from a sunset and a nicely textured sky and you have some great elements. I always feel a little more at peace when I make my way down to the Wentworth Marina and it’s nice and quiet. I’m sure once Latitudes opens and people return to their boats, it might get a little more hectic…but in the meantime I’ll enjoy any/all trips I can make.

As I’ve posted recently – the Wentworth Marina is a place where you can see yachts that are ridiculously large – see a gorgeous sunset, and enjoy a delicious meal with a view. Latitudes is perched just over the Wentworth Marina and is a great spot in New Castle to enjoy a meal out on a deck away from the throngs in downtown Portsmouth in case you’re in the mood for something a bit more laid back.
