Dusk at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard with calm waters as the wind died down and slack tide arrived.

The Memorial Bridge Lift span has officially left the building (well, the seacoast…)! A stroke of pure timing had me heading down State Street in time to notice a helicopter overhead, and a crowd of people heading towards the waterfront. I decided to investigate – and was rewarded with the scene above. The lift span heading out towards Portsmouth Harbor.
I also decided to head to New Castle so I could see the bridge float past the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse on the coast, and also past Whaleback out in the harbor. It’s nice to finally have closure on this portion of the project, and not worry about missing timeframes and capturing big moments. I’ve got a few more images featuring the Naval Prison and a better closeup of Whaleback – but until then, enjoy today’s images. Be sure to click them to see them large!

I’m always writing about why I feature a certain image, or about the story behind it. I thought today I’d start to try something new – what do you like about this image? Is it a connection to the place, the view, the weather? I’d be curious to hear what you might write if you were putting together today’s post with the above image from Prescott Park – featuring the public docks.

You have to click this one to see it large. The submarine that is docked in port at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is being hosed off as the shipyard glows in the late day sunlight underneath some colorful and fluffy clouds. What a serene scene and a nice portrait of the colorful cranes on the Maine horizon.

This old structure has a nice perch over the Piscataqua and a first class view of the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. The Sheafe Warehouse was constructed in Portsmouth’s shipping heyday back when sailing was the predominant way to travel. They do an excellent job of keeping the structure in good repair, and each year they have an art opening inside that is pretty cool and rustic. The commercial fish pier is in the background, and looks like it is going to be gobbled by the structure and its reflection.
