Four Views of Whaleback Light, Watery Wednesday

Whaleback Light marks the entrance to Portsmouth Harbor. It is on the Maine side of the boarder. These views are from the New Hampshire side. The first view is looking over the wall of Fort Constitution past Portsmouth Harbor Light out into the mouth of the harbor. I took this photo and the second photo after a snow storm in February.

The 3rd photo is awesome!

Wow, I think these are really amazing. I like the first shot and that you can see the snow on top and on the brick wall. The one where it is completely dwarfed by that huge ship (even though I'm sure it's a perspective thing), is awesome. Great shots!

...do you know how old the stone lighthouse is? I like its design. Your reds and blues are always so rich. Love that!

Gotta love the tugboat.

I think if I could not live in the bush a lighthouse would be my next choice. I love the isolation.

These are the kind of photos you could stare at all day Steve. Yes that third one is a stunner.

It's amazing how those small tugs can haul the huge ships like they do.

I agree!
The third photo (as well as the fourth) is amazing.
Beautiful work.

I used to know this area well. My brother and his family lived in Portsmouth and then Hampton for many years. I haven't been back since they moved about 10 years ago.

Thanks for reminding me of all those visits long ago.

That old lighthouse is so beautiful and screams New England!

I can tell you were in Portsmouth on a very cold day Steve. Good for you having the patience to sit there in the cold and get such excellent shots. Isn't Portsmouth a great place?!
