Whaleback Seasmoke Sunrise, New Castle Drew O'DonoghueABOVE: "Whaleback Seasmoke Sunrise, New Castle" by Drew O'Donoghue

And the winners of the Winter 2016 Photo Contest are a wonderfully arranged view of footprints through the snow; a spectacular shot of Portsmouth Harbor Light; and a moody scene of reeds at Great Bay Discovery Center.

• Akilah Campbell for Winter Wander, Dover.
• Drew O'Donoghue for Whaleback Seasmoke Sunrise, New Castle "
• Charles Cormier for Great Bay Discovery Center, Greenland

It was hard to leave off Nubble After Juno by Mark Frommelt, Joy, New Castle by Terri Nulph and the best of those shots that evoked all that snow: Groundhog Storm, State Street by Leanne Whalen and Buried Under Snow by Suzannie Trottier, and Found It by Jennifer Richmond

Thanks to all who entered! Winners will each receive $50 gift certificates from Portsmouth a La Carte, good at dozens of fine restaurants in downtown Portsmouth..

West End Guide

Portsmouth's West End, aka Islington Street, has seen a explosion of business activity over the past couple years. Once the area was known for Hannaford's supermarket, The Button Factor and few businesses like Tony's Radio and TV. Nowadays it houses more than 100 retail stores, service businesses and small offices, from beer sellers to yoga studios. Recognizing the change, PortsmouthNH.com has added a guide to the neighborhood. See www.portsmouthnh.com/west_end/.
