Here’s part 2 from our New England fine art excursion. Today’s theme is Coastal New Hampshire. On this shoot, I spent a few hours along the coast of Rye and New Castle, as the sun set and the stars begun to shine.
The photo above is of Rye Harbor – a tiny little natural harbor that hosts a tight-knit community, made up mostly of lobstermen. As the sun set between a few layers of thin winter clouds, it would peek through with vibrant beams that tinted the entire scene.
The seawall at the end of Rye Harbor provided a great natural frame for the Isles of Shoals, located 8 miles off the coast of NH. The photo above is of Star Island. On its rocky shores you can see the Oceanic Hotel, one of only a few remaining great resorts from the Victorian Era, as well as Gosport Church and a monument to Pastor John Tucke.
As day gave way to night, I traveled a bit further up the coast to New Castle, NH – a small town located on a collection of rocky islands along the south bank of the Piscatiqua River. The photo below features Whaleback Light – one of my favorite subjects in the area. Though the moon was out, the clear skies and low humidity allowed me to capture a generous collection of stars to the east.
Enjoy the photos!
