Colors of The South End
After a stunning sunrise shoot out in Rye Harbor, I took my favorite long-route home through historic downtown New Castle and made a couple key stops along the way to enjoy the morning and other familiar favorite scenes. This shot from the bridge on the way back into Portsmouth features the vibrant colors of the homes along the water in the South End and a lone boat. Simplicity is perfection.
Early Light in The South End
Brewster’s Bait & Tackle is perched above the back channel of the Piscataqua River. The South End and its historic homes, including the Wentworth-Gardner mansion, add color and texture further in the distance.

Governor John Langdon House

Skating at Puddle Dock Pond at Strawbery Banke
It has been amazing to see the vision of some dedicated and passionate locals come to life! The folks behind Puddle Dock Pond fought a long/hard battle to see this project through, and as I have heard many people say since it’s opening – it is hard to imagine that such a phenomenal and quintessentially New England winter venue wasn’t here sooner. I can’t wait to bring my family down for a skate once our little one is big enough to don a pair of ice skates! In the meantime we’ll settle for enjoying the fun from the sidelines topped off with a hot chocolate next door. A sincere THANK YOU to those who donated time and money to make sure that this project saw the light of day. It is amazing to have another great winter activity right here in our own back yard!
