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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
