A Great Island Morning

A Great Island Morning

The dramatic cold weather and bright sunlight that blasted the scene on the morning of January 8th also brought brilliant scenes in all directions. This view towards the southeast highlights a rock formation and the colorful sea smoke that enveloped the coastline.

After the sun crested over the cloud bank on the horizon, the entire coastline and the sea smoke hovering above the water were illuminated with a fiery orange glow. This was one of the more amazing scenes I’ve ever witnessed and I can’t wait for the next opportunity to venture out on a frigid morning.

One of nature’s gifts during the winter is sea smoke – mesmerizing and even more stunning when seen at sunrise.  This image was captured before the sun crested over the cloud bank on the horizon, which led to one of the most fascinating light shows I’ve enjoyed in a while (and made it well worth the frozen fingers that I had for most of the day).

The Orion of Portsmouth, NH heads out towards the ocean late one day amidst a thick coating of fog during the warmer summer months.  The Sheraton Harborside Hotel and one of the cranes of the working waterfront can be spotted looming in the background.

Happy New Year | Portsmouth First Night 2015

Portsmouth’s First Night celebrations included the annual fireworks display.  It was a brisk and perfect winter evening and a great way to usher in the new year.  Thank you for your support and for your encouragement in 2014 – my goal for 2015 is to get out more frequently and to capture more of the changing face of Portsmouth.  I hope you join me in the new year’s new photo adventures…Happy New Year!
