Another incredible full moon rising over the ocean and Nubble Lighthouse.
At Sail At Sunset
A beautiful night on Great Island Common as the sun’s last light strikes Whaleback Lighthouse and a sailboat off the coast of New Hampshire.
Eastern Point Lighthouse
Today’s image takes a trip into the archives and a departure from the New Hampshire coastline and heads south to Cape Ann in Massachusetts. Eastern Point Lighthouse sits on the southeastern corner of Gloucester Harbor and is flanked by a long jetty. Good friend and ridiculously talented photographer Chris Lazzery and I were trying to find a spot to visit one Saturday and decided on this spot – a place I’d never really been despite its proximity to Portsmouth and its rich maritime history. The light and the location didn’t disappoint!
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.
Another frigid morning in coastal New Hampshire filled with fresh light and the promise of a new day. I couldn’t settle on where I wanted to venture out to for a cold sunrise on a Saturday morning, and decided that if the conditions were great at Great Island Common that I would be kicking myself when I got home and didn’t shoot there. When I arrived it was a beautiful but underwhelming scene at first (in comparison to last week’s incredible show) – but once the sun rose over the horizon, everything changed for me. It was a little too cold for my hands to be quick in shooting with 2 sets of gloves, but I had a great morning and enjoyed watching this scene unfold once again!
Sea Smoke in New Castle
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 Lighthouse at Sunrise
Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse sits along the New Hampshire coastline in New Castle – within the confines of Fort Constitution. Some of the lasting colors of fall can be seen on the Maine side of the river behind the lighthouse, complimenting the red roofs of the fort.
On a recent trip out to Great Island Common in New Castle, I was hoping to get some intense sunrise clouds and sky towering over the Atlantic Ocean. What greeted me was a cloud filled sky and a peaceful more subdued scene. As the sun rose over the horizon in the distance, it peeked through the clouds in the distance to create this fiery glow behind Whaleback Lighthouse during this 90+ second exposure.
Brant Point Light
For today’s image we head to the island of Nantucket to feature one of its coastal lighthouses. Brant Point is in walking distance to the island’s main downtown district, and greets visitors on the ferry as they arrive. It has an iconic red walkway and is usually decorated for the season – featuring an American flag in the summer and a wreath for the Christmas season. I thought its classic profile looked beautiful beneath a clear blue sky.
During an evening out on the water with Portsmouth Harbor Cruises, the towering clouds in the sky were kissed by the setting sun’s light. With this as a backdrop, the iconic Whaleback Lighthouse stands tall in Portsmouth Harbor between New Castle and Kittery. The rich texture of the natural stone that the lighthouse was constructed with is my favorite part, beautiful against any sky.
