The Heritage and The Tugboats

The Heritage and The Tugboats

The M/V Heritage and the Moran Towing tugboats sit amidst a thick fog in the Piscataqua River.  Another iconic coastal New England scene with fog so thick that the Memorial Bridge can barely be seen in the background.

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.

The Waterfront After A Storm

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.

View From Ceres Street

I recently had the opportunity to visit a friend’s place on Ceres Street along the waterfront (a beautiful industrial loft at 111 Market Street), and enjoyed this gorgeous vista from a new vantage point.  Despite no dramatic lighting, the scene is still a memorable one thanks to the four tugboats, the new Memorial Bridge, and the coating of snow along the Maine waterfront.

Lights on the New Memorial Bridge

The lights on the new Memorial Bridge add an interesting dynamic to the modern structure.  The community came together and raised the funds necessary to install these versatile lights, which illuminate the bridge at dusk each night. I love the right lighting on the staircases and some of the blues and greens on the structure.  I can’t wait until all the cranes have left the scene and our new bridge is finally left to stand in all its glory over the Piscataqua River.
