While spring has officially arrived, the true signs are still a bit dormant, so I decided to head back to some images from years past to enjoy some lush green landscapes. In this image, the sun rises just behind the Great Cove Boat Club in Eliot, ME over the Piscataqua River.
Sometimes there’s not much you need to do with photography except be prepared when you’re in the right place at the right time. This was taken on the same evening as the last image – featuring tall clouds over Portsmouth’s waterfront. I had been so excited about the changing scene over Bow Street that […]
The Moran Towing tugboats are rugged creatures. These monsters work diligently throughout the year, especially in the midst of winter, ensuring that the river traffic navigates the Piscataqua with ease. This was taken after the big snowstorm of 2013 came and went, leaving a rainy/slushy day in its wake – as you can see the […]
There are some views that are just hard to imagine until you see them. This shot from the balcony of The One Hundred Club captures the view up river of the Piscataqua on a relatively quiet summer evening. The salt piles and a crane can be seen, along with the Middle Bridge and the Piscataqua River […]
Winter is cold. It’s supposed to be. That doesn’t make it any easier, when it first arrives each year…and this year we’ve been lucky to have a very mild winter through the end of 2011. This shot was taken on the first single-digit degree day (about 5 degrees at this point), and the air was […]
For once I think I managed to make a tugboat scene less about the tugboats than the other elements in the frame. In this shot, the deck of the Old Ferry Landing, The Tugboats, the freighter in the background and the Middle Bridge in the distance all make for relevant subjects in the shot…creating the […]
A light misty fog hangs over the Piscataqua River on a late summer afternoon. I loved the orange glow over the scene that the setting sun cast….viewed from a penthouse unit in the Ale House Inn building.
Today features two different sunsets on the Piscataqua River. The image above was taken from the Memorial Bridge and features the Bow Street waterfront and the Portsmouth skyline during a subtle orange sunset. I just loved how the orange glow lights up the one building aimed directly towards the setting sun. Below, Badger’s Island on […]
I’m not sure if “barge” is the appropriate word here, but I’m sure my nautical friends will help me out with this one. This piece of equipment is set up just next to the Tugboats as Maritime Construction & Engineering completes the redevelopment of the sea wall that sits underneath what will soon be a […]
It’s no secret that I’m drawn to the waterfront, wherever I am. Today’s post features a beautiful and intense sunset over the Piscataqua River from last fall here in Portsmouth on the east coast – and below, from the west coast, it features the Pacific Ocean as seen from the Muir Beach Overlook (a national […]
