Another installment in my Abstract series. Rather than clouds, the basis of this image was made with water, sunset and tugboats – a combination I most definitely enjoy.

The Mary M. Coppedge stands tall in front of the Martingale Wharf building and the construction of the new Memorial Bridge. I love this time of day when the orange lights that adorn the sides of the tugs take on an eerie glow – in this shot they nearly match the orange glow of the homes in the building on the waterfront in the background.

The Moran Towing tugboats are rugged creatures. These monsters work diligently throughout the year, especially in the midst of winter, ensuring that the river traffic navigates the Piscataqua with ease. This was taken after the big snowstorm of 2013 came and went, leaving a rainy/slushy day in its wake – as you can see the massive rain drops in the surface of the river.

The new south span of the Memorial Bridge has officially been floated in and placed. Crews worked during the evening hours securing the new span so that the Cape Cod barge could be floated out at slack tide once enough water retreated. The north Kittery span will soon be under construction, and the new structure will be ready for use by July this summer. The eerie evening lighting and the under lighting on the bridge span make this an amazing scene to see in person.
Watching the placement of the span was a historic event, and although it was a slow process, it was exciting. I’m looking forward to watching the new structure evolve, and to capturing the process.

The Atlantic Pearl as seen from Penhallow Street. I’ve always loved the imposing presence of a freighter next to the tugboats from this angle. It fits right in with the scale of the multi-storied buildings surrounding it, and is a sight that’s probably not seen in many places around the country. It’s always a reminder of where we live and how unique it is. I can’t imagine what it would be like to watch merchant ships unloading centuries ago in this very spot.
