Full Moon Over The Tugboats

Full Moon Over The Tugboats

These are a few of my favorite things….. I finally made it out to capture a shot that I have envisioned for at least the past year! With a newborn at home and a new sleep schedule, I finally made it out in time to catch the sunrise and the setting moon over the tugboats! Hope you enjoy

Buoy & Boat | Portsmouth Waterfront

Buoy & Boat | Portsmouth Waterfront

Quite possibly my favorite boat along the Portsmouth, NH waterfront.  This boat along with a red skiff sat at rest on an early winter morning at high tide just after sunrise.  The stillness of the water and the colors of the elements make this one of my favorite images of the year.

First Light | South End

First Light | South End

Although summer is on its way out – it continues to give us gorgeous mornings and beautiful weather. I made the most of it this weekend with a sunrise paddle, launching from New Castle and heading towards the South End, with the hopes of capturing great light and reflections at high tide. When I arrived under the Route 1B bridge this scene nearly knocked me out and I knew it was worth the early wake up.

NO PARKING

NO PARKING

If you have spent time in Portsmouth in the past few years, chances are that you had to do some searching to find a parking spot (especially if your visit started in the evening hours).  Portsmouth has an acute parking shortage and the city has been working to identify a location for a new parking garage for more than a decade.

On Monday, May 4th, people will have an opportunity to speak in support of a bonding request to FINALLY build a new parking garage.  Some people think that a shuttle and a location outside of the city’s downtown represents a cheaper and better solution for the parking problem, but I strongly disagree as it’s a more expensive long term band aid to address the issue.

Please consider going to City Hall on May 4th.  Visit Portsmouth Parking Problems on Facebook for more information on how you can help.

Early Morning Light Over The Marina

The early morning light grazes the undersides of the clouds.  The spring sunrises and sunsets have been beautiful – all of the early and late date color helps to forget about the snow.
