A beautifully peaceful glimpse of the waterfront in Portsmouth after a fresh snow in February 2011, while the Memorial Bridge still stood in tact over the Piscataqua River.

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.

Winter has finally arrived here in Portsmouth. During lunchtime, I went for a walk through the sharp winds and the plentiful snow. I visited my favorite spots and captured this tugboat image with the flakes flying in the moody scene. I’ve got a tradition going with myself, so when there is a respectable snowstorm moving through the area – I make a point to capture the Moran Towing tugs in the rugged setting.
Also, please don’t forget to swing by the Kennedy Gallery to say hello tonight (Friday March 2nd) between 5 and 8pm!

Don’t worry – this is an image from last winter. The snowstorm from this past weekend was a (painful) reminder of how close the cold and snowy days are on the horizon. With that in mind…I was visiting my archives and found this shot of the grounds of Strawbery Banke that I love. The rich wood textures make this shot for me. Hope you enjoy.

A portrait of a shoe store. That description doesn’t seem to fit the visual content of the photo for me…but it’s what it is. There isn’t anything tremendously eye catching or stunning about this photo, yet I find that I’m drawn to it. It’s captured winter and the effects of a storm, footprints in the unshoveled sidewalk, awning blowing in the wind, water spray on the windows, a desolate street and lonely parking meter, and a grey-washed sky to pull it all together. I love the location of the elements in the frame, and I’m happy with my composition here. It makes an otherwise simple portrait of a store into a storytelling opportunity, courtesy of some winter weather and some glass.
