The Pier at Fort Foster | Kittery, ME

For today’s post we head to the other side of the Piscataqua River.  This long and inviting pier is located at Fort Foster in Kittery, ME – which is near the former life saving station in the mouth of the Piscataqua River, close to Whaleback Lighthouse.  If you look closely – you can spot Whaleback between the supports of the Pier itself.

I decided to head over to the Maine side of the river for a sunset voyage over the weekend…as it’s one of the few places where you can get a gorgeous sunset over the waterfront on the eastern seaboard (at least on the part that’s within driving distance).

I’ll be featuring several more shots from the evening’s travels – with a good portion coming from the quick hour that I spent wandering around the pier and watching the tide go out as the sun went down.  Quite a peaceful evening.

  1. This photo is horrid. The rocks are obviously fake (did you carry them here for the photo?), the pier is most certainly a result of photoshop, and I can tell the sky is something stolen from someone else’s photography. I bet the water isn’t even real water is it?

    Actually, this is one of my favorites (aside from those which feature the tugs).
