Sunset on The Cliffs

As I was heading home from work, in the late afternoon sunlight, I was itching to find something to shoot.  There weren’t many clouds in the sky, but the colors of the sky were gorgeous.  As I was making my way down the hill on Market Street and approaching the salt piles, I realized how perfectly and subtly the cliff of one of the piles was lit.  I immediately found a parking spot and hopped out of the car so I could capture the light. I love the resemblance ot a mountain top or a sand dune…and the fact that it’s the materials that will be keeping our roads safe in a few short months.

Sunset Over the Tugboats

Today’s post features the Portsmouth waterfront once again, this time from the other side of the Moran Towing tugboats.  The sun had only a few minutes left before it was completely gone for the day.  The scene was pretty subtly lit and gorgeous…and it’s times like that when I never know whether the brackets (multiple exposures) that I capture will produce a shot worthy of posting or not.  I was pleased to find out that this combination of three shots happened to add some HDR magic to the scene, with a gigantic glowing orange orb…accentuating the setting sun and subtly lighting the tugs. I hope you enjoy…tomorrow I’ll be featuring more architecture.

This shot was taken from the deck of The River House, which continues to enjoy a great vantage point on the waterfront…and boy am I glad that spring is here, though I am pretty sure I would enjoy a few extra degrees of warmth.

Freighter | A Winter Throwback

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a freighter unloading/loading at the Granite State Minerals terminal on Market Street and the Piscataqua River.  Here’s a throwback to the winter in their memory.  For now, it’s sunshine and the decks on the waterfront.
