September 22, 2012 – Autumn season officially starts today! The colors of the season are starting to appear here in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It is not peak foliage yet, but photographers visiting the region will have no problem finding something to shoot. Here are six locations I have photographed over the years you may want to consider for your foliage photographic journey.

Autumn foliage from the Boulder Loop Trail. This trail is located off the Kancamagus Highway in the White Mountains, New Hampshire USA. Mount Chocorua is in the distance. Much of this area was logged during the Swift River Logging Railroad era, which was in operation from 1906 - 1916.

Every foliage report I have read is suggesting it will be a great year for color and peak will be early. I hope so! Hopefully some of these locations will give you ideas for planning your photographic journey. You can view more autumn foliage images of the White Mountains, New Hampshire here.
