Another one of my favorite spots during the summer is BG’s Boat House. It’s a classic New England waterfront spot, a great place for seafood and for taking in a sunset. The muted colors at sunset made for a quiet scene. The boats in the frame are all docked at Witch Cove Marina – though we saw a few people come and go on the empty pier in the middle of the photo.
Sometimes a nice shoot during the week can be incredibly rejuvenating. Driving around after an incredible sunset, I was amazed at how awesome everything still looked as dusk set in. A thick fog had emerged over the waterfront in places and the clouds were still lit enough to create a dramatic environment, so I decided to pull over near Portsmouth Kayak Adventures at Witch Cove Marina to see if I could get an interesting shot. I set my camera on top of one of the massive wooden logs that the pier was attached to, and hoped a few brackets would catch the range of light in the scene. Sure enough, it did, and I have this hauntingly beautiful shot to prove it.
