The garden in Prescott Park is a colorful, inviting and peaceful little spot tucked between Marcy Street and the open grounds of Prescott Park. With fountains and wizened old trees, there aren’t very many (if any) places you’ll find downtown that have the same magical feel.

The springtime colors continue to flourish around the city. These trees lining a walkway through Prescott Park are in full bloom, accentuated by the green grass and the overcast skies above. I’m always amazed at the opportunities around the city to sit and take in the many views – both historic and natural.
This is another of my favorite waterfront destinations in Portsmouth – the commercial fish pier. Portsmouth’s parks and incredible access to the waterfront are one of my favorite parts of this season, when the sun sets later and the temperatures are inviting enough to enjoy a walk late in the day without bundling up too much.
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.
During a rainy day in Portsmouth, I decided to go for a walk through Prescott Park. It had been a very long time since I went on a stroll to take photos. Lately I’ve found myself shooting based on where I happen to be, without setting out to take photos. I decided to take a panoramic shot of the fish pier – be sure to click this one to see it large. The fleet is quiet late in the day, but this will all change in a matter of hours when sunrise rolls around at the beginning of a new day.
