While spring has officially arrived, the true signs are still a bit dormant, so I decided to head back to some images from years past to enjoy some lush green landscapes. In this image, the sun rises just behind the Great Cove Boat Club in Eliot, ME over the Piscataqua River.
It’s always energizing to start the day with a glimpse of something naturally stunning. With all the rain and moisture in the air recently, mornings are filled with fog and atmosphere, and the sun created a perfectly aligned column with the catamaran smack in the middle.
What a difference a week makes! Last week we were reminded that winter is still officially here with a nice snow storm, which dumped 10 or so inches of snow around the seacoast. This week, we are eyeing temperatures that are predicted to climb into the 60s, a reminder that spring is only around the corner.
My favorite part of winter is the moment when the skies clear and all the trees and fresh snow are still serenely undisturbed – it’s best when this is the morning after the storm and the skies are richly blue. The sky is a bit ominous still in this shot of the Great Cove Boat Club, but it’s better than nothing.
With its spectacular riverfront location, the seacoast of New Hampshire and Maine is choc full of places to moor a boat. I found this great vantage point to see the Great Cove Boat Club on Spinney Creek in Maine. A nice long exposure blurs the lightning fast movement of the Piscataqua River at the end of the day.
