A new freighter has been in port for the last few days. The empty sand and salt depot is now a distant memory, and it’s chock full of materials ready to head throughout New England. The HERON from Nassau is a very cool looking ship – you might not know it from this angle, but it has two huge structures on its deck that look like cages – compared to the freighters I’m more used to seeing, which have their own cranes on their decks. I’ll feature a few more shots later this week so you can have a glimpse of what makes this ship a bit different. I loved the late day light on the ship’s hull and the closeup of the upper decks.
A large freighter by the name of Mascot from Nassau was docked at Portsmouth’s State Pier last week. I caught this shot after the rain stopped for the night one of the evenings, which made for some great clouds and nice textures with the lighting. I was loving the reflections of the lighting o the water in the river…and was glad to catch some last daylight. The Piscataqua River Bridge and the Middle Bridge are seen in the distance.
