Sunset at Whaleback Lighthouse

As sunsets earlier and earlier each day, it becomes more important to strategize when heading out for a shoot.  I was running out of time way too quickly after going out for a run with the Mrs., but still couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get some of the incredible late day light.  My first thought was to head to Great Island Common for a close-up of Whaleback Lighthouse and Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse.  With the 100mm-400mm lens, it would be a treat to have the option to shoot a bit closer.  I decided to use a long exposure to really bring out the richness of the coastal air and the movement in the Atlantic Ocean.  I’m very pleased with the shot – a serene capture of a beautiful seacoast landmark.


BOLD Freighter in Port

BOLD arrived on the Portsmouth state pier this week, and I loved the rich blue hull.  Normally, I can’t get a good shot of something so far away…as the State Pier is a good distance from a clear viewing angle.  This time was different – as I’m fortunate to be borrowing a 100mm-40mm lens for a bit, and it is able to get a little extra distance to capture the full magnitude of the ship, and of the Piscataqua River Bridge hovering above it.
