What comes around goes around


Late last summer I posted this photo of the Portsmouth Harbor lighthouse:



At the beginning of December I took a trip back to New Castle to shoot the lighthouse again:






Although I love the colors in the bottom photo I still prefer the top view. And to think, all those berries used to be roses!

I love both of them. The rose hips are gorgeous. You should go in all 4 seasons and make a collage . . .

What a big difference Sharon!! Hopefully soon it will be back to the top pic again as it seems to me that things, at least in some areas, are starting to shoot out new buds. Spring has to be the loveliest season.

Berries and roses... completely interchangeable!

How fun to see the lighthouse in different seasons - and the sky is almost exactly the same! Beautiful pictures!

Both are pretty photos, but if I have to pick a favorite it would be the first one.

Both beautiful photo's Sharon. The top one gives a bit more summer feeling and we all long for summer don't we.

Both shots are very pretty and although I love spring and summer the second shot is my favorite!

Those roses! I can just smell their fragrance. Thank you for these photos.

I really love both of these. The colors are marvelous. However, I think I would prefer to be there in the first picture.

Cindy said...

Nice shots. Now when I was there last week all I got were the dry vines. Your pic does it much more justice. LOL

The Retired One said...

Hi, both photos are beautiful. I love to see the changes in the seasons. Also, I love your new banner with the swans.

Karin said...

Very lovely!! Love lighthouses - quite a few we've seen along the east coast - many years ago! Thanks!!

They both are beautiful! The rose hips just are something though. I wish we could find bayberry in that kind of abundance! My fav!

I love returning to the same place for each new season. The difference is usually amazing. Each season has it's special beauty. I am so glad I live in New England so I can experience 4 distinct seasons!

I like the title of this post and the sentiment... :) xxx

It reminds me a lot of the Edgartown light.

PinkCat said...

I love both pictures. The light is so bright in the December one that it doesn't seem like mid-winter. Gorgeous! x

hulagirlatheart said...

Both are beautiful. I'm in the process of photographing a few particular scenes in every season. It's an interesting study, don't you think?

Balisha said...

One of my favorites to craft wreaths with...rose hips. Beautiful!

Each photo has its beauty, but today, surrounded by snow, I love the roses and their promise of warmth!

Beautiful photos.

Both pictures are pretty. I love rose hips but the roses more :)

MaggieGem said...

Love them both... a collage of all seasons is a great suggestion!

Love all pictures, you have a great eye!

Pat said...

I like the idea of a collage of all four seasons. Both photos are really nice and bring their own specialty to the picture.
