Blue Moon Rising at Whaleback Lighthouse
What an incredible sight this was to watch! I’ve been wanting to get out to New Castle to watch the moon rise for at least more than a year after first accidentally catching the moon rise with my dad out at Odiorne Point. Finally – I had the opportunity to again last evening. Only once in a blue moon…

Nightfall Over Portsmouth
A beautifully serene evening over the Piscataqua River with Portsmouth in the distance and working waterfront of Kittery, Maine in the foreground.
At The Fish Pier
Dusk at Portsmouth’s Commercial Fish Pier on Peirce Island.
South End In The Rain
Piers and floating docks amidst the steady rain of early spring in Portsmouth’s South End neighborhood.
Early Morning Light Over The Marina
The early morning light grazes the undersides of the clouds. The spring sunrises and sunsets have been beautiful – all of the early and late date color helps to forget about the snow.
Wood Island Amidst The Sea Smoke
This winter has been remarkable in terms of the volume of snow and the intenseness of the cold. One of the amazing sunrises I’ve ever seen was watched from Great Island Common – and while Whaleback Lighthouse and Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse are my favorite vistas – this image of the Wood Island Lifesaving Station brought a new almost mystical feeling to the structure that’s fallen into significant disrepair. The color of the massive sea smoke is from the day’s first sunlight and gives the scene an awesome feel. You can almost make out the fishing boat beneath the bird that is heading out to sea.

Reflections on The River
The late day light and the calmness of the Piscataqua River drew me immediately to this image – which reminded me of an impressionist painting. While this is very far from my ordinary work, it’s also one of my recent favorites and I hope you enjoy it too.
Colors of The South End
After a stunning sunrise shoot out in Rye Harbor, I took my favorite long-route home through historic downtown New Castle and made a couple key stops along the way to enjoy the morning and other familiar favorite scenes. This shot from the bridge on the way back into Portsmouth features the vibrant colors of the homes along the water in the South End and a lone boat. Simplicity is perfection.
