Daybreak Over The South End

A glimpse of Portsmouth’s storied South End under the day’s first light.

Early morning light kisses the face of several historic buildings that line the South End waterfront in Portsmouth, NH.  The glass-like waters ensure a calmness in the scene.

Quite possibly my favorite boat along the Portsmouth, NH waterfront.  This boat along with a red skiff sat at rest on an early winter morning at high tide just after sunrise.  The stillness of the water and the colors of the elements make this one of my favorite images of the year.

Although summer is on its way out – it continues to give us gorgeous mornings and beautiful weather. I made the most of it this weekend with a sunrise paddle, launching from New Castle and heading towards the South End, with the hopes of capturing great light and reflections at high tide. When I arrived under the Route 1B bridge this scene nearly knocked me out and I knew it was worth the early wake up.
