Full Moon Over The Tugboats

Full Moon Over The Tugboats

These are a few of my favorite things….. I finally made it out to capture a shot that I have envisioned for at least the past year! With a newborn at home and a new sleep schedule, I finally made it out in time to catch the sunrise and the setting moon over the tugboats! Hope you enjoy

First Light | South End

First Light | South End

Although summer is on its way out – it continues to give us gorgeous mornings and beautiful weather. I made the most of it this weekend with a sunrise paddle, launching from New Castle and heading towards the South End, with the hopes of capturing great light and reflections at high tide. When I arrived under the Route 1B bridge this scene nearly knocked me out and I knew it was worth the early wake up.

A freighter visiting Portsmouth from Istanbul is unloaded on a warm winter evening ahead of another deep freeze, helping to replenish the shrinking salt piles.

Snowy South End

This has long been one of my favorite vantage points of the historic South End neighborhood.  In this image, a snowy south end basks in soft early morning light a few days after the first storms of the season.

Portsmouth At Night

Portsmouth’s three bridges, the Piscataqua River Bridge, the Middle Bridge, and the Memorial Bridge, connect the states of New Hampshire and Maine.  I’m used to featuring these bridges individually, as I’m usually drawn to their architecture and setting – but not usually how they all fit together in the bigger picture.

This shot was taken at night, creating some intrigue with all the lighting along the waterfront and at Harbour Place, with some additional light from the cars traveling across the bridges and some smoke above the industrial components along the waterfront.  This scene will look different soon, as the Kittery span of the Memorial Bridge is now in place.
