Freighter at Work | Salt Piles

Another Freighter made its way into town to unload more salt onto the “White Mountains of Portsmouth”.  I stopped to watch some of the action as the cranes on the waterfront unloaded some salt into new piles.  The blur of the lights is from the movement of the crane, and you can see a faint remnant of some orange lights from the loader that was moving the salt around on the ground.  I’ll put up a video later today that captured some of the action as it was happening.

Return of the Freighter | Market Street

The approach of Fall is signaled by the return of the freighters to Portsmouth’s working waterfront.  Here the sand & salt piles are loaded onto the massive freighter as seen from the Granite State Minerals truck scale from the Market Street entrance.  Today, I have adjusted the site’s settings – and from now on you will be able to click the image for a LARGE version!

Rust & Salt Piles | Portsmouth, NH

On the industrial portion of Portsmouth’s waterfront at the NH State Pier sit piles of materials, including the giant heap of twisted (and rusted) metal displayed in the photo.  Grimmel Industries currently leases the pier and recycles the materials, and is in negotiations to extend the lease for another 5-year period.  Along with the salt piles shown in previous posts HERE and HERE, the twisted metal is accompanied by another junkpile of larger metal items. (Check out samples on my FLICKR.) Another interesting and entrepreneurial use of Portsmouth’s working harbor.

Tugboats & Sunset

Chances are, if you’re visiting this site – Portsmouth has a special place in your heart.  This shot brings together a few of the things people tend to associate with the great seacoast town: tugboats, sunset, waterfront and salt piles.  These all tend to be good ingredients for great memories and great photographs.
