Light and shadow are at play on the North Church steeple in the late day sunlight. I was dropping off the rest of my signed prints for Friday’s Art Round Town opening at Kennedy Gallery on Market Street when I looked up to catch the view above.
With its spectacular riverfront location, the seacoast of New Hampshire and Maine is choc full of places to moor a boat. I found this great vantage point to see the Great Cove Boat Club on Spinney Creek in Maine. A nice long exposure blurs the lightning fast movement of the Piscataqua River at the end of the day.
A slightly new take on a familiar scene. I’ve been trying to learn a few new tricks to keep things fresh, and this is one of my first attempts at the new look. Details are heightened, and all of this is from a single exposure – a change from the bracketed sequence that I use more often. Subtle yet still punchy. Any image with the Moran Towing tugboats is good in my book – and a little glimpse of the bridge completes the scene.
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.
