Wood Island Amidst The Sea Smoke
This winter has been remarkable in terms of the volume of snow and the intenseness of the cold. One of the amazing sunrises I’ve ever seen was watched from Great Island Common – and while Whaleback Lighthouse and Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse are my favorite vistas – this image of the Wood Island Lifesaving Station brought a new almost mystical feeling to the structure that’s fallen into significant disrepair. The color of the massive sea smoke is from the day’s first sunlight and gives the scene an awesome feel. You can almost make out the fishing boat beneath the bird that is heading out to sea.
The silhouettes of the North Church and the Ceres Street waterfront at day’s last light and night’s early glow on one foggy summer evening.
Reflections on The River
The late day light and the calmness of the Piscataqua River drew me immediately to this image – which reminded me of an impressionist painting. While this is very far from my ordinary work, it’s also one of my recent favorites and I hope you enjoy it too.
Colors of The South End
After a stunning sunrise shoot out in Rye Harbor, I took my favorite long-route home through historic downtown New Castle and made a couple key stops along the way to enjoy the morning and other familiar favorite scenes. This shot from the bridge on the way back into Portsmouth features the vibrant colors of the homes along the water in the South End and a lone boat. Simplicity is perfection.
A Beacon In The Fog
Buildings along Portsmouth’s waterfront glow amidst the purple hued fog of an unforgettable sunset with the St. John’s steeple appearing almost as a lighthouse in the distance.
A Winter Freighter
The Nord Emperor and its red hull present a striking contrast against the freshly fallen snow.
On Pleasant Street
The day winds down as a winter storm gears up. Twilight sets in with grey skies and holiday lighting in downtown Portsmouth.
