Reflections on The River
The late day light and the calmness of the Piscataqua River drew me immediately to this image – which reminded me of an impressionist painting. While this is very far from my ordinary work, it’s also one of my recent favorites and I hope you enjoy it too.
A Winter Freighter
The Nord Emperor and its red hull present a striking contrast against the freshly fallen snow.
Ocean Freedom at Sunset
A freighter visiting Portsmouth from Istanbul is unloaded on a warm winter evening ahead of another deep freeze, helping to replenish the shrinking salt piles.
Unloading The Salt
Enjoying the view of Granite State Minerals and the very laborious process of getting salt off the ships onto the White Mountains of Portsmouth.
A Snow Filled Ceres Street
This is hands down one of my favorite views in Portsmouth. The Decks, the stairways on Ceres Street, The Tugboats and a freighter. It doesn’t get much better than this (except during the summers when the hanging garden is in bloom and all of The Decks are open).
On The Decks (Summer in Portsmouth)
In the heart of winter amidst bitter cold and multiple feet of snow – it’s always nice to remember the warmer days in Portsmouth. Summertime is filled with great outdoor activities of entirely different kinds (no jackets/mittens/hats required) – and with many options for having a drink out on the waterfront (complete with an amazing view of sunset). Here’s to warmer days!
A Night View of The Tugboats
With increased freighter traffic throughout the winter, it’s usually a quiet and calm scene down by the waterfront as the massive ships unload their salt – effectively reloading the Market Street terminal for distribution throughout New England.
Tugboat & Pioneer
The Mary M. Coppedge and the Pioneer head down river towards the Atlantic Ocean on a late winter afternoon.
Another impressive freighter in port at the State Pier. The Trogir is docked beneath a canopy of beautiful clouds at sunset in the Piscataqua River.
