Happy Birthday America!  Have a wonderful 4th of July holiday.  Thank you to those who continue to fight for our freedom and for ensuring that all Americans can continue to enjoy life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Day's End in Portsmouth

There’s nothing like a summer sunset at day’s end in Portsmouth from the decks!  The sun retreats behind the massive salt piles and leaves a beautiful glow in the sky, often creating dramatic scenes with the summer clouds.

A Portsmouth Scene

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.

Portsmouth From Kittery

This view of Portsmouth from Kittery was taken just after the clearing of intense thunderstorms a few years back when the old Memorial Bridge loomed over the Piscataqua River. The soft oranges and the covered boat in the foreground made this image stand out among the archives.

5 Years of The Daily Portsmouth

June 1, 2014 marked the 5th Anniversary of The Daily Portsmouth.  I originally set out with this website to capture the essence of Portsmouth, NH and the seacoast area by sharing images of Portsmouth’s unique charm – the reason that people who call it home love it so dearly and the reason that thousands come by the drove to visit year round. My favorite part of town is the working waterfront, which features tugboats, freighters (and the salt, oil, propane, metal, etc. that they are carrying), fishermen and their boats – the never ending flow of river traffic is a thing of true beauty – and of course the waterfront decks where you can grab a bite and a beverage and enjoy the show during the summer.  I also love the historic streets lining the waterfront – featuring homes that are centuries old with storied pasts. I have truly enjoyed shooting and sharing 5 years of The Daily Portsmouth and all of the beauty I’ve been able to see while I am out in the field shooting, and even more so I’ve enjoyed meeting so many different people that have seen my work and continued to encourage me.  A very heart felt thank you to everyone who has clicked, emailed, commented, liked, shared, and of course those who have supported me by purchasing a piece for their home or office.  I can’t wait to see what is in store during the next five years!  Happy 5th Birthday to The Daily Portsmouth!
