A Cold Day Upriver

It looked like a very cold day to be out on the water of the Piscataqua River.  It was frigid enough on the shore where this shot was taken…on the deck of The River House.  The Moran Towing tugs brave the winter storm while The Old Ferry Landing deck is perched precariously over the river….

Portsmouth’s Working Waterfront (At Night)

It’s easy to miss, but the steady stream of smoke from one of the gypsum plants (drywall) along the river always makes for an interesting shot.  It’s just another element of Portsmouth’s dynamic waterfront, adjoined by the Moran Towing tugboats and the Granite State Minerals terminal and the State Pier.  This night scene was captured…

The Working Waterfront

Piscataqua River Fog

A light misty fog hangs over the Piscataqua River on a late summer afternoon.  I loved the orange glow over the scene that the setting sun cast….viewed from a penthouse unit in the Ale House Inn building.

Freighter in Port | Tasman Sea
