These are a few of my favorite things….. I finally made it out to capture a shot that I have envisioned for at least the past year! With a newborn at home and a new sleep schedule, I finally made it out in time to catch the sunrise and the setting moon over the tugboats! Hope you enjoy
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.
This winter has been remarkable in terms of the volume of snow and the intenseness of the cold. One of the amazing sunrises I’ve ever seen was watched from Great Island Common – and while Whaleback Lighthouse and Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse are my favorite vistas – this image of the Wood Island Lifesaving Station brought a new almost mystical feeling to the structure that’s fallen into significant disrepair. The color of the massive sea smoke is from the day’s first sunlight and gives the scene an awesome feel. You can almost make out the fishing boat beneath the bird that is heading out to sea.
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.
