Photo: Shot with a Canon 5D Mark III a few miles from the photographer, Jerry Monkman's, home at the mouth of the Piscataqua River—his go-to spot for early morning coastal sunrise photos. A 15-second exposure created the blurred effect in the waves.
It's 6:30 a.m. Moments before dawn. In the distance, the stout figure of Whaleback Light begins to take shape. A few minutes from now, this stretch of shore—Great Island Common—will flood with golden sunlight. Sailboat captains, both novice and pro, will cut through the cobalt waves that form the border between Maine and New Hampshire. Deep-sea fishing vessels and isle-hopping cruise ships will make their way to open water, and there will be an excited hum of travelers on the dock here in the smallest town in New Hampshire. But for now, all is quiet. Another day on the water is about to begin.
