Tugboats in the Snow
With the return of winter, snow is inevitable. Based on this fact – I always make it a point to get out and enjoy my favorite scenes regardless of the weather – and this shot of the Moran Towing tugboats in the snow was my reward during one stormy day in 2012.
Tugboats in Fresh Snow

Calm Waters of the Piscataqua
It’s not often that the powerful waters of the Piscataqua River appear to be so calm. A late afternoon visit to one of my favorite Portsmouth scenes revealed a peaceful scene of the Moran Towing tugboats.
Tugboat & Pioneer
The Mary M. Coppedge and the Pioneer head down river towards the Atlantic Ocean on a late winter afternoon.
A memorable sunset over the Portsmouth waterfront and its iconic tugboats and the decks.
Summer Afternoon By The Decks in Portsmouth
A stand up paddle boarder navigates the Piscataqua River amidst the Moran Towing tugboats and a massive freighter known as the Curacao Pearl from Nassau. The riverfront from The Decks in Portsmouth is one of my favorite things to watch in the summer time – and this image captures the essence of summer for me.
The Heritage and The Tugboats
The M/V Heritage and the Moran Towing tugboats sit amidst a thick fog in the Piscataqua River. Another iconic coastal New England scene with fog so thick that the Memorial Bridge can barely be seen in the background.
Tugboats in The Fog
This week’s weather has given us some beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and some intense fog over the river. One afternoon on my way home from work I decided to take a quick detour past the Moran Towing tugboats to see if they were engulfed in any fog. I always love a moody New England type waterfront scene, and for me – this was perfect.
The Spiral Staircase on The Waterfront
The spiral staircase that climbs the building on the waterfront side of Bow Street has long been a favorite of mine. The lighting is usually dramatic at the waterfront, and this bright afternoon was no exception. The tugboats can be seen in the background as well as the waterfront deck of the Martingale Wharf. It’s the little details around town that I always enjoy seeing, in all types of weather and in all types of light.
