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.

The fishing fleet is dormant on a cold February morning in Rye Harbor.  The cold and windless morning had some beautiful conditions resulting in this shot with some nice range in colors as the sun rose over the horizon and the morning blues of the sky are still reflected in the water’s surface.

In yet another surreal scene at Great Island Common in New Castle, a fishing boat heads out to sea amidst a golden scene of sea smoke at Whaleback Lighthouse.  I have another take on the scene in a vertical layout that I’ll save for later in the week – but I continue to be amazed each morning that I head out for sunrise with the gifts of winter at work in the natural world.

Another frigid morning in coastal New Hampshire filled with fresh light and the promise of a new day.  I couldn’t settle on where I wanted to venture out to for a cold sunrise on a Saturday morning, and decided that if the conditions were great at Great Island Common that I would be kicking myself when I got home and didn’t shoot there.  When I arrived it was a beautiful but underwhelming scene at first (in comparison to last week’s incredible show) – but once the sun rose over the horizon, everything changed for me.  It was a little too cold for my hands to be quick in shooting with 2 sets of gloves, but I had a great morning and enjoyed watching this scene unfold once again!

This is Part II of the sea smoke filled morning at sunrise in Great Island Common.  The previous post featured a Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse at dusk without the early morning’s sunlight in the scene – with everything changing ever so slightly with the glow of the sun.
