I recently had the opportunity to visit a friend’s place on Ceres Street along the waterfront (a beautiful industrial loft at 111 Market Street), and enjoyed this gorgeous vista from a new vantage point. Despite no dramatic lighting, the scene is still a memorable one thanks to the four tugboats, the new Memorial Bridge, and the coating of snow along the Maine waterfront.
After one of our recent storms, I decided that the snow clinging to the roofs was too good to miss taking a few photographs. I headed to Peirce Island, which always has a mountain of snow from the city’s removal, to see what some of my favorite familiar scenes were looking like. I found Brewster’s in the snow surrounded by water and the weather, with the subtle glow of the waterfront lantern adding some interest to the scene.
A scene from Rye featuring the boat ramp at the end of the day. A beautifully peaceful and simple scene with Rye Harbor in the distance.
The new lighting on the Memorial Bridge has settled in to feature a steady blue glow at night. It makes for an otherworldly appearance from all the places that it’s visible around town once the daylight has retreated.
