A fresh snowfall covers the sidewalks and the rooftops in Market Square on a dreary morning. The North Church and the Athenaeum make for great focal points in this historic streetscape.
Bow Street is most frequently shown from the view at the top of the hill – where you can see the historic buildings that follow the curve of the Piscataqua River frontage. On a morning walk, I decided to capture what I thought was also a beautiful moment in time. It just so happens, that this view probably also hasn’t changed too dramatically in my lifetime – and maybe in decades. Downtown Portsmouth is an awesome place.
The cloud don’t seem to be around when I’ve been able to get out for sunset lately, but the oceanfront light and the gentle waves made for a memorable evening in Rye.
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.
Strawbery Banke is one of the places you can visit in Portsmouth and be brought back in time. The interiors of the structures provide the look and feel of life decades and even centuries ago. At just the right vantage point in the museum’s field, you can see nearly the entire top half of the North Church steeple framed perfectly by the buildings in the foreground.
The South End waterfront is a colorful, historic and beautiful place. This image was made to be seen larger, and I hope to have it printed at 10 feet or larger soon, but in the meantime I didn’t want to wait to share this one. The sky was a bit boring but the water was calm enough to reflect the homes along the shore line.
After a fresh snow, Market Square glistens in the evening light and in the wet roadways.
