Tugboats in The Fog
This week’s weather has given us some beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and some intense fog over the river. One afternoon on my way home from work I decided to take a quick detour past the Moran Towing tugboats to see if they were engulfed in any fog. I always love a moody New England type waterfront scene, and for me – this was perfect.

A classic waterfront scene of Portsmouth at dusk. This was taken the same day as the previous post after the sun had set. The scene is dominated by red brick and the reflections of the sky in the water – two of my favorite things about Portsmouth. More to follow in this storm series next week! With the summer weather nearly here, we should start to see more incredible sunsets on the seacoast and more thunderstorms as well.
Surf in the Martingale Wharf is one of the new restaurants located along Bow Street. In this image from winter 2014, a quiet Bow Street rests beneath a cloudless sky – awaiting the warmer weather and the masses of people that will be enjoying the many waterfront destinations.
The soft sunlight on the waterfront after a storm left the Bow Street buildings glowing. The old Memorial Bridge and a rainbow made this particular evening a memorable one for me – one of those reminders at how amazing it can be to find yourself in the right place at the perfect moment.
The work continues on the new Memorial Bridge – and it is only a short matter of time until the bridge will be open for people to actually use to get to/from Kittery, Maine. I love the subtle lighting of the curve of Bow Street with its rooflines in the foreground with the illuminated towers of the bridge in the background as workers feverishly work to complete the structure.
A vista of downtown Portsmouth and its historic Ceres Street and Bow Street waterfronts. The dark and ominous sky made for a moody scene – but didn’t keep a few rays of sunlight from reaching through.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll probably say it another thousand times. The curve of the buildings along Bow Street is a beautiful thing, demonstrating the curve in the Piscataqua River as seen from land. As captured in this image, Market Street and Bow Street are busy places, usually the most fun places to be during warmer weather – evidenced by the steady flow of pedestrians. I loved the lighting and the summery mood in this image, and enjoyed seeing peoples’ reaction to the cars as they navigate the streets. Portsmouth is great for people watching all times of year, but especially when the people start coming out of the woodwork in the spring months.
