It’s not often that I travel outside my familiar Portsmouth and seacoast destinations for photography, so I always enjoy sharing what I find when I do.
Our quick getaway to Kennebunkport was refreshing, and it was nice to enjoy the coast a bit north of home – and I was treated to this beautiful cloudless sunset at Goose Rocks Beach on our first night there. I always find that the colors in the summer sky over the ocean are mesmerizing, especially when the ocean is calm enough for clear reflections.
There are many different opinions on Portsmouth’s working waterfront, but I for one love the fact that we can enjoy freighters from all over the world right here in town.
In this image, the Atlantic Progress from Singapore sits docked at the Granite State Minerals pier along Portsmouth’s waterfront.
The skies cleared for Portsmouth’s Market Square Day this year – and it was a beautiful afternoon downtown amidst the crowds.
We took a little getaway trip to Kennebunkport recently, and I decided to get up for sunrise to enjoy the beauty of the coastline. Goose Rocks Beach is a beautiful long white sand beach with a nice vista of the horizon. The sand at the beach is full of rippling formations from the changing tides, just perfectly kissed by the day’s early sunlight in this image.
We are entering into the time of year when we are regularly treated to spectacular sunsets thanks to humid air and late days. This image features a moody skyscape over the waterfront in Rye with an equally moody reflection in the calm water.
Shot earlier this year in the throes of winter in March, this sunset shot from Gunstock features Mount Washington in the distance. Lately I’ve been particularly drawn to pastels and natural landscapes, and this image has the beauty of both – with a splash of Lake Winnipesaukee mixed in.
