Wood Island Amidst The Sea Smoke

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.

This is Part II of the sea smoke filled morning at sunrise in Great Island Common.  The previous post featured a Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse at dusk without the early morning’s sunlight in the scene – with everything changing ever so slightly with the glow of the sun.
