At Pease Golf Course

One of the beauties of the seacoast is the rich variety of recreational opportunities – from surfing to swimming to day hikes and golfing.  This shot was taken on the Pease Golf Course at the redeveloped former air force base.  It’s rare that I’ve featured shots from outside the downtown or waterfront area…and a nice rich green golf course shot has been long overdue.  With the recent spat of rain, I’m worried it might be a while before I can get back out on the golf course…

Boston-Portsmouth Air Show

Boston – Portsmouth Air Show with the Blue Angels from Ron Risman on Vimeo.

The Boston-Portsmouth Air Show is in town all weekend!!  The incredible talents of the individuals flying the aircraft are beyond words as you’ll see in the video above.  Today’s post is a special one – the featured video was recorded and produced by a friend of mine, talented local photographer Ron Risman of Cinematic Stories (visit him at http://cinematicstories.com).

I’m planning to head over to Pease to take part in the madness on Sunday and see what I can do for photos of these amazing aircraft (that travel at ridiculous speeds only feet away from each other!).  For Saturday’s show I was lucky enough to see the Blue Angels flying overhead as I mowed the lawn and again later as I enjoyed a cup of coffee on the front patio. Looking forward to the opportunity to capture something new!  In the meantime, here’s an image to enjoy of our beloved waterfront and the Moran Towing tugboats.

Redhook Brewery | Portsmouth, NH

The former Pease Air Force Base is now home to a magnitude of different businesses (quite the model for successfully redeveloping a military base), including the Red Hook Brewery.  I’ve heard that the original design of the Portsmouth, NH location used the same design as the existing location in Seattle, WA in order to save money on engineering/design costs, and so the building is built to sustain severe earthquakes.  Can anyone confirm or deny this fact?

This shot was taken of the brewery from a spot on the tour behind a glass panel.  I decided to help myself to a solo tour since I missed the official Catapult Seacoast event.  Perhaps a Smuttynose or Portmsouth Brewery tour is next?  I’m now accepting invitations!
