Rich afternoon colors at the Wentworth Marina in New Castle, NH.
A classic black and white take on one of the seacoast’s busiest locations on the water – The Wentworth Marina. Next to the Wentworth By The Sea Hotel, this spot has become a favorite place to go for a stroll to enjoy the waterfront and gorgeous sunsets.
This evening was one of those nights where you are thankful that you witness such incredible natural beauty. This ridiculous cloudscape was moving around the seacoast, with some intense late afternoon light filtering through and making landscapes at every corner into capture-worthy visions. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera handy for most of them – but managed to capture this scene from the Wentworth Marina in New Castle.
I am a math nerd, so my obsession with angles and symmetry are no mystery. The opposing lines and angles in so many places make this photo even more fun. I have always enjoyed the colors of the wooden walkway and the richly painted benches that line it, throw in a glowing window from a sunset and a nicely textured sky and you have some great elements. I always feel a little more at peace when I make my way down to the Wentworth Marina and it’s nice and quiet. I’m sure once Latitudes opens and people return to their boats, it might get a little more hectic…but in the meantime I’ll enjoy any/all trips I can make.
It’s the offseason at the Wentworth Marina. At least one brave soul had unwrapped their boat back on New Year’s when this was shot…with that gorgeous little thing docked in the foreground and a couple others further back in their slip. The beautiful sunset added a nice element to this seacoast scene.
The Wentworth Marina must be one of the most luxurious looking and feeling places on the seacoast. This glimpse of the Marina earlier this year when was when the weather was warmer overnight than it gets during the day these days, and the boats were out to prove it. I’m starting to play around with a few various sizes and crops outside my standard 3×2 full frame camera sensor ratio. Sometimes you can’t beat a panoramic feel for a scene, and I’m reviewing some classic shots to see if they might be more compelling without the extraneous info that the large camera sensor originally captured. This shot was taken with a Carl Zeiss 18mm lens…what do you think? I always find myself drawn to the rich and natural colors created when using my Zeiss rentals.
As I’ve posted recently – the Wentworth Marina is a place where you can see yachts that are ridiculously large – see a gorgeous sunset, and enjoy a delicious meal with a view. Latitudes is perched just over the Wentworth Marina and is a great spot in New Castle to enjoy a meal out on a deck away from the throngs in downtown Portsmouth in case you’re in the mood for something a bit more laid back.
