Sunrise at Rye Harbor

Sunrise at Rye Harbor

The fishing fleet is dormant on a cold February morning in Rye Harbor.  The cold and windless morning had some beautiful conditions resulting in this shot with some nice range in colors as the sun rose over the horizon and the morning blues of the sky are still reflected in the water’s surface.

Yesterday's Storm | Rye, New Hampshire

Yesterday’s Storm is tied up in Rye Harbor, New Hampshire. I love a good waterfront scene, and I’ve always been drawn to the boats that have character from working out on the sea day in and day out. I thought that this calm afternoon shot from Rye was a nice portrait of one of Rye’s fleet.

Rye Harbor Boats

Continuing with this week’s images with another from my time in Rye on Saturday.  These dinghies sat roped and blowing around in the wind at Rye Harbor.  There is something I’ve always loved about images like this one, dinghies at rest in a body of water.  I’ve seen many similar shots over the years, some more colorful with richly painted boats, others with a single dinghy in the middle of a foggy scene, but I tried to get as close to directly above the boats as I could (without falling in) for this image to get a different feel.  The ruggedness of these particular boats adds an element, as well as the bright orange Home Depot bucket.
