A quiet New England afternoon by the water.
As I was revisiting the archives this evening – this majestic sky caught my eye and I thought it was time to further investigate this set of brackets. The late evening had some nice soft light on the Wentworth-Coolidge as it sat perched on the coast of the Piscataqua and got a bit of a facelift. I can’t get enough of the mustard clapboards and the rich green grass.
Also – I wanted to give everyone a heads up that they’ll have an opportunity on Thursday night at The Music Hall’s Scene @ Five event to purchase raffle tickets to win a 20″x30″ print and possibly more pieces as well! ALL PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT THE MUSIC HALL and another local non-profit yet to be determined. I hope you’ll consider buying a ticket or three…to support our local organizations that give so much back to the community!
The seacoast experienced a gorgeous sunset on Thursday evening. After an event in New Castle at the Wentworth Marina – I was joined by another local photographer, Ron Risman of Cameratown.com. We decided to head over to the sprawling Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion property on the back channel in Portsmouth…and despite the ridiculous mosquitoes that wanted us to pack it in for the night, we enjoyed some lush colors in the sky and some moonlight.
The shot above features the large yellow structure as it sits along the waterfront with some awesome summer hues. The shot below was taken directly opposite from the sunset shot a bit later on – and features the gorgeous moonlight reflected on the water, with a little bit of jetty to spice it up.
For the camera techies out there – the shot above was a 5-exposure series (-2 to +2)…and the moonlight shot below was a 3-exposure set of brackets (-2 to +2).
This bright yellow mansion is a fixture on Portsmouth’s historic waterfront. It’s the Wentworth-Coolidge mansion, and I’ve previously featured some shots of the massive anchor on its lawn that overlooks New Castle and the harbor. I decided to take a drive over to check out the lush green grass and see if I could find any new inspiration…and came across this large stone wall that framed the house nicely. I also loved the colors of the sky…the rain was holding off just long enough to enjoy being outside and make for a moody sky.
