The Peirce Island Boat Ramp

We all have our comfort zones and our creative muses.  When I see a gorgeous sunset developing, I always scramble around for what the best place to shoot might be.  Sometimes traffic, timing, clouds, people, etc. tend to dictate where I can go….so I was driving around downtown trying to find  a great spot to catch a rainbow that had appeared under the stormy sky.  I wanted to frame the North Church.  I wasn’t able to get both in any frame, then I was inspired to head towards one of my absolute favorite locations to shoot a dramatic sky – Peirce Island.

I was greeted with an increasingly stunning landscape shot, with the essence of it shown above. Check out some previous gorgeous moments from the Boat Ramp here and here.

Sunsets of Portsmouth | Strawbery Banke

The sunset on the horizon illuminates the windows on this historic building along the border of Strawbery Banke.  The newly restored steeple of the South Ward Meetinghouse can be seen amongst the silhouetted branches.
