The New England coastline is a thing of beauty. This image is from the Maine coast at Fort Foster and was taken just as the day’s first light crept over the horizon, illuminating the wispy clouds and Whaleback Lighthouse in the distance.

Whaleback Lighthouse is one of the seacoast’s icons, standing guard at the mouth of the Piscataqua River in the Atlantic Ocean. Its stone construction is beautiful and unique – built to withstand the rugged storms that can hit the atlantic. This cold evening was a bit boring, but with a long exposure the color of the water and the horizon make for a soothing blend.

A cool morning in New England provides great photographic opportunities. One morning I headed out to Fort Foster with some friends at sunrise, and came away with a few shots I was happy with. The rocks in the foreground are in Maine while the image looks out into Portsmouth Harbor with Whaleback Lighthouse in the distance.

It’s truly amazing how much access that we have to the waterfront here on New Hampshire’s seacoast. There are many coastlines around the country that are filled to the max with beautiful homes, restricting the general public from enjoying the ocean’s natural beauty. Among our great parks and waterfront vistas, New Castle’s Great Island Common ranks as one of my favorites. It’s a spot to enjoy lighthouses, picnics, swings, and the rocky coastline.

The departure of the Memorial Bridge was fun to watch, and certainly a once in a lifetime endeavor. I still can’t get over how funny it seemed to watch a 2 million pound lift span floating out towards the ocean, past Whaleback Lighthouse and the other Seacoast landmarks along the way. I wanted to also be sure to capture some interesting scenes beside the span itself floating away – and this shot from Great Island Common was one that I loved the composition of once I got home to review my shots. Hope you enjoy it too.

As sunsets earlier and earlier each day, it becomes more important to strategize when heading out for a shoot. I was running out of time way too quickly after going out for a run with the Mrs., but still couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get some of the incredible late day light. My first thought was to head to Great Island Common for a close-up of Whaleback Lighthouse and Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse. With the 100mm-400mm lens, it would be a treat to have the option to shoot a bit closer. I decided to use a long exposure to really bring out the richness of the coastal air and the movement in the Atlantic Ocean. I’m very pleased with the shot – a serene capture of a beautiful seacoast landmark.
