This digitally-enhanced photograph of a 1969 Chris-Craft Sportsman antique power boat was taken during the New Hampshire Boat Museum annual vintage wooden boat show, held on the docks in Alton Bay, New Hampshire, a small village at the southern end of Lake Winnipesaukee. This gleaming 22′ boat is amply powered by a 283 Chevy V-8 inboard engine. This particular image will be on display in my On the Water exhibition at the New Hampshire Art Association gallery in Portsmouth, NH during August.

The Sail Portsmouth organization hosted another Tall Ship visit this weekend. The Oliver Hazard Perry, a 200-foot long, square-rigged, 3-masted tall ship was open for tours in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This ship, the first full-rigged sailing ship to be built in the United States in the past 100 years, was named after the naval hero in the War of 1812. The ship was built in Newport, Rhode Island, where Perry hailed from.
While on a cruise of Portsmouth Harbor, I captured this photograph of a lobster boat named “Early Dawn” tied up to a pier piled high with lobster traps. The foliage in the background is starting to show its fall colors. I used artistic filters to give the image a painterly look.
This photograph of a schooner was taken while I was on a Boston Harbor Islands boat cruise. I captured this graceful boat as it passed by Fort Independence in Boston Harbor. The darkened sky made for a dramatic shot, which is accentuated by some artistic filters I applied to the image.
