Welcome, 2015!

I spent the last night of 2014 this year exactly as I did on December 31, 2013: bundled up against the cold, shooting the First Night fireworks in the skies above Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

While last year I chose a vantage point across the Piscataqua River in Kittery, Maine, this time I opted for a closer view - from the top of the parking garage in downtown Portsmouth.

Knowing the garage would be a popular spot since First Night festivities would be in high gear, I ventured into town three hours before the fireworks. I figured if I could still get in, great - I'd give it a whirl. If not, oh well.

When I arrived, there was a line of cars waiting to enter but the structure was far from full. Driving all the way to the top, I was able to park right next to where I wanted to shoot. Good omens!

It turned out to be a productive shoot.

Let's hope the rest of the year proves just as positive!

Wishing you and yours a joyous, healthy, and prosperous 2015.
