Stairs of Portsmouth

 

Several sets of staircases line the brick sidewalk of Ceres Street near the waterfront.  I absolutely love the historic feel of this part of town, steeped in history yet full of commerce.  Happy New Year to all!

Christmas from the Snowy Banks of the Piscataqua

I would like to thank everyone who has been supportive over the past year and helped to grow The Daily Portsmouth!  I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season with family, friends and loved ones.  On Christmas, we were treated to some light snow to add to the festive feel for the holiday – which gave way to a beautiful sunset as the clouds broke at the end of the day.

Wishing you the best in 2013!

Fishing at Sunset in the Piscataqua

 

The fisherman cruises on the Piscataqua River at the end of a late spring day.  The Sheraton Harborside Hotel looms in the background as does the Isles of Shoals Steamship Company’s Thomas Laighton.

 

Commercial Fish Pier In The Fog

One late morning in mid-October, the fog began to roll in.  The fall seems to be a fruitful time of year for dynamic weather and drastic swings in temperature….which usually leads to great opportunities for photos.  I decided to head towards the South End to see what Peirce Island was looking like, and couldn’t help but to stop and capture the rugged peacefulness of the commercial fish pier.
