The HMS Bounty and Lynx were at Portsmouth Harbor over Memorial Day weekend, so I went down early Sunday morning before the 20 + thousand crowd that was expected. Wish I could have gotten closer.

Little post of views while out on our island tour...
On Monday morning I caught the USS Hartford (SSN 768) being assisted into the slips at the Electric Boat shipyard for repairs. Back in May, the Hartford was involved in a collision with the USS New Orleans in the Straits of Hormuz. Here's a couple shot of her being brought into EB.
Was on Ellis Island a couple of weeks ago with my sons 6th grade class trip. All us country mice had a good time in the big city.:) This was shot from Ellis Island as ferry arrived.
Local canoe/kayak store was having a sale so a lot of people trying things out.
A sailing we will go.
Fun on the River
Rafting or Surfing?????
A tugboat assists a US Navy Virginia class fast attack sub as they head back to the sub base in Groton, CT. Now what would have made this shot perfect is if the New England Central Railroad was running on the tracks in the background... :D

The Adirondac is the newest vessel on Lake George, built in 2004. Beside her is the Horicon, built in 1988.
Caught a 688 class fast attack sub heading back to the Sub Base on my way into work last week (actually, it's a 688I, or improved, class - identified by the lack of dive planes on the sail). Here's one shot of her passing by with downtown New London in the background.

Coastal cruise ship American Star leaving Belfast Maine.
Didn't have enough time to go myself/a bit windy for me anyway, so I went to take some photos.
I was shooting with my 50 1.4 (only other lens atm is a 10-22) so it was pretty tough getting any real pics from the beach, but I was able to crop some down to decent web size photos. I should be...
"The calm before the storm"
This sailboat sits on Congamond Lake in Southwick, MA. A severe thunderstorm looms in the background and will toss this vessel like a toy within five minutes.
