Rainy Day at the Fish Pier

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.

The Gundalow

The Captain Edward H. Adams Gundalow of Portsmouth is docked in Prescott Park beneath a rich blue sky.  The reflections in the calmness of the Piscataqua add to the scene…and I would have loved to see a boat like this sailing up and down the Piscataqua back in the 1600s and 1700s.  I’ve been featuring sailing shots of the new Piscataqua Gundalow, and will be posting another shot of it in the Portsmouth Harbor later this week.
