A Night On The Memorial

Mount Washington

New Hampshire’s tallest peak, Mount Washington, is also one of the windiest places on the planet, and infamous for having the “world’s worst weather”.  From the beautiful deck on the back of the Omni Mount Washington Hotel, the serene view was inviting and seemed anything but treacherous.  Since I’ve hiked it in good conditions in the past, I know it’s never anything to take for granted, but that the views are worth the effort. Sometimes I get so focused on the beauty here in the Seacoast that I forget how many treasures we have up north in the White Mountains.

A Night in Market Square

On a foggy evening in Market Square, I decided to take advantage of dry weather and the moody winter landscape.  The lighting allowed for long exposures and the street traffic brought the scene to a whole new level – as the headlights accentuated the curves in the buildings and the streets.

Bow Street Panorama

 Bow Street is one of my favorite streets in all of Portsmouth, for many reasons.  One of the reasons is the beautiful curve that the street takes from the Memorial Bridge towards Market Street, highlighting the curve of the waterfront and the decks that adorn the opposite side of the buildings seen in this panoramic photo.

 

A Calm Afternoon At The Waterfront

A beautifully calm afternoon by Portsmouth’s working waterfront with the Moran Towing tugboats and a guest freighter, the Atlantic Pearl.  Last moments of the day’s sunlight gleam on the Middle Bridge towers.
