One of the areas in Portsmouth that has undergone the most change is the South End. This picturesque part of town used to be one of the seediest areas along the waterfront, hard to imagine with so many perfectly manicured homes. I love the rooftop advertising on this waterfront building, along with the layers of homes along the shore, the clocktower of the former Children’s Museum location, complete with a municipal water pumping station hidden in plain sight amongst it all.

This is another of my favorite waterfront destinations in Portsmouth – the commercial fish pier. Portsmouth’s parks and incredible access to the waterfront are one of my favorite parts of this season, when the sun sets later and the temperatures are inviting enough to enjoy a walk late in the day without bundling up too much.

The Early Dawn sits docked next to a mountain of lobster traps with Portsmouth’s South End Waterfront in the background. This weekend I decided to venture out in search of inspiring views – and decided to shoot this familiar scene mid-day thanks to the layer of clouds. I love the range of colors in the scene, from the rich red of the boat to the peach and yellow homes in the distance and the blue blanket of sky overhead.

Without a cloud in the sky, I didn’t know what I’d find for sunset and I didn’t have any plan on where I’d be heading. Before the light fully retreated for the day, my route took me through the waterfront along the South End and then to Peirce Island before a final stop at the Wentworth Mansion. I love this part of town and any view from any angle usually captures its beauty, but like many others – I always find myself coming back to the bridge to Peirce Island. We’re so ridiculously lucky to have so many resources so close to us, including the outdoor swimming pool in the summer and Four Tree Island for picnics and such, all within a short walk from town.
