A Moran Towing tugboat escorts the Rhourd Enouss from Monrovia back towards the Atlantic Ocean. The lighting was not great mid-day, but the view was still awesome as this massive vessel was guided by the Roderick McAllister (in from New York, NY).
This image captures the working waterfront of Portsmouth, perhaps as much as or more than any other photo I’ve shared. You can catch a glimpse of the Moran Towing tugboats, a freighter docked in port, Kittery, ME, and the Memorial Bridge all in one glorious panoramic shot. I went with a black & white treatment here because I thought it appropriate to boil the scene down from its familiar colors and elements to capture the essence of the elements.
