Color Color Everywhere!

The brilliant white of the church steeple towering over the roof tops of historic Portsmouth, NH.

The vibrant greens and golds of the salt marsh grasses as the sun burns off the early morning mist.

The fiery colors of a day at the drag races.

The vivid purple of a wild orchid.

    1. Thanks Rick. It’s probably the most photographed subject in Portsmouth, NH. But considering it towers over the historic downtown/waterfront area, and is beautifully lit at night, it’s not hard to see why.

    1. Thank you Paula. There’s just something about that church, if I’m in the area I have to photograph it. Finding a different angle is getting harder and harder though.

    1. Thanks! I had completely forgotten I had even made the second one. But I’m like that. After a shoot I might work with a few immediate favorites, leaving the rest to languish on my hard drive waiting to be rediscovered. πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you. About as different as subject matter can get too. This summer I think I need to add more car art to my portfolio. It’s been a while since I’ve shot anything not nature/landscape.

    1. Thank you! That orchid was one of my most pleasant accidental finds. I was photographing a section of stream I’ve been meaning to photograph and actually came across this and another wildflower I hadn’t photographed before. Lucky me πŸ™‚
