Rainbow in Portsmouth

I missed the amazing rainbow that graced Portsmouth with its presence last week, but I was happy to find another one last evening as I was heading home from work.  Above, the rainbow ends above the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.  Below, the rainbow is seen with the South End waterfront with another faint rainbow forming above it.

At The Beach

An empty lifeguard chair stands watch over the Atlantic Ocean on Craigville Beach in Cape Cod.  I thought this would be appropriate to share as our beaches here in NH have been seeing an influx of visitors this summer – and nearly all lifeguard chairs I’ve ever seen evoke the same essence of being at the beach.

Moffatt Ladd House at Dusk


The Moffatt Ladd House stands near the shore of the Piscataqua River as the day ends and in the distance the Sarah Long Bridge illuminates the surface of the Piscataqua. I love shooting at this time of day, when daylight is retreating and the artificial lighting starts to take over.

Bow Street and The Memorial Bridge

The work continues on the new Memorial Bridge – and it is only a short matter of time until the bridge will be open for people to actually use to get to/from Kittery, Maine.  I love the subtle lighting of the curve of Bow Street with its rooflines in the foreground with the illuminated towers of the bridge in the background as workers feverishly work to complete the structure.

Tugboat in the Fog

A sole Moran Towing tugboat rests amidst the fog in the Portsmouth waterfront. With all of the heat and humidity we’ve been seeing here in the seacoast, there have been many foggy and moody mornings.  Here is a profile of a tugboat with one of my favorite parts of town – the decks! Happy Friday and happy summer to all.


Witch Cove Marina


Another one of my favorite spots during the summer is BG’s Boat House.  It’s a classic New England waterfront spot, a great place for seafood and for taking in a sunset.  The muted colors at sunset made for a quiet scene.   The boats in the frame are all docked at Witch Cove Marina – though we saw a few people come and go on the empty pier in the middle of the photo.

South End Sunset

One evening a couple weeks back, my wife and I decided to head to BG’s Boat House for a summer evening dinner.  On our way home on Route 1B, we were greeted by tall clouds that hid the sunset – but didn’t hide the soft orange glow in the sky.
