Blue Moon Rising at Whaleback Lighthouse

Blue Moon Rising at Whaleback Lighthouse

What an incredible sight this was to watch! I’ve been wanting to get out to New Castle to watch the moon rise for at least more than a year after first accidentally catching the moon rise with my dad out at Odiorne Point. Finally – I had the opportunity to again last evening. Only once in a blue moon…

Sunrise at Rye Harbor

Sunrise at Rye Harbor

The fishing fleet is dormant on a cold February morning in Rye Harbor.  The cold and windless morning had some beautiful conditions resulting in this shot with some nice range in colors as the sun rose over the horizon and the morning blues of the sky are still reflected in the water’s surface.

Braving The Cold at Great Island Common

In yet another surreal scene at Great Island Common in New Castle, a fishing boat heads out to sea amidst a golden scene of sea smoke at Whaleback Lighthouse.  I have another take on the scene in a vertical layout that I’ll save for later in the week – but I continue to be amazed each morning that I head out for sunrise with the gifts of winter at work in the natural world.

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!

Sunrise at Whaleback Lighthouse

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.

Sunset Over Whaleback Lighthouse

A memorable sunset at Fort Stark in New Castle, NH after the moonrise for the super moon was a bust due to the clouds on the horizon.  At least the clouds provided us with a beautiful canvas for the sunset!
