A Sunny Evening on the Pier

After strolling around Prescott Park and the South End when the Tall Ships arrived on Thursday, I headed over to one of my favorite spots on the Mary E. Prescott Pier.  There are a ton of benches to sit down and enjoy throughout Prescott Park, with a bunch on this particular pier facing the Memorial Bridge, another side faces the Commercial Fish Pier, and a third side has benches facing the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.  It’s always worth a trip to town or a walk over to the park to sit and enjoy the scene – whether you need to decompress or just want to enjoy some sea air.

The sunset and the tones of the wood made this shot perfect for me – capturing the serenity of the Piscataqua River waterfront.
