The Martingale Wharf Deck

The Martingale Wharf Deck always has a great view of sunset, but it also has a beautiful view towards the Memorial Bridge – seen here around the corner of Bow Street amidst the subtle colors of dusk.

Surf | Bow Street Evening

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 Portsmouth Naval Prison

In Portsmouth, we have the best of all worlds.  Some people even have more than that….as a Portsmouth guy – I’m thrilled we have historical landmarks such as the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, and places all along various bodies of water to view them from.  The folks who happen to own this gorgeous parcel of land thought they’d take advantage of having the best of all worlds – and plopped some adirondack chairs along the waterfront to sit and watch the boats and the inactivity at the naval prison.  This particular afternoon didn’t warrant much lounging outside, but it didn’t stop me from daydreaming about it (and taking this picture).

Empty

The bucket of the crane is empty.  It’s been unloading sand from the freighter Hera for days now….replenishing the nearly depleted supply on the Market Street terminal. I loved being out at night and watching how the lights on the massive cranes illuminate the scene…yet only enough to shed some light where it was needed to unload. I actually saw each of the four bays on the freighter being unloaded at various points throughout the week…with the sand/salt mountain looking pretty ominous all over again.

The Fleet | Portsmouth's Working Waterfront

If this photo feels a bit warmer to you than the recent snow-laden images, it’s because it was taken on a gorgeously warm summer evening in August.  The commercial fish pier looks more like a postcard than a working portion of Portsmouth’s waterfront when it’s sandwiched between the green water and the orange and blue sky at sunset.

Sunrise | Fort Foster

And so another week begins.  And as each work week begins with a Monday…each day starts with a sunrise.  I was glad to witness this gorgeous sunrise at Fort Foster in Kittery, Maine…with some nice waves as high tide rolled in with the day.  It’s really something else to witness the first rays of light creep over the horizon.

The Flag | After Sunrise

Minutes after sunrise on the beach in Boynton Beach, FL, the lifeguard on duty posted this singular red flag in the sand.  This was part of their notification system to let beach visitors know that the water wasn’t swimmable.  I thought it was an awesome scene, almost like a moon landscape with the American Flag posted in the sand…and believe it or not, it was quite cold.  I think the temperature was in the mid 30s, and the ocean was fogging in the early morning light…and the cool colors of the ocean with the warm clouds in the distance and the starkly red flag made this a solid shot for me.
