April, White Mountains – I find April to be one of the more challenging months to produce imagery. The landscape is usually covered in "dirty snow", making it tough to produce clean looking imagery. Nothing drives me crazier than a beautiful mountain scene with dirty snow in the foreground! Yes, I'm complaining some but know many photographers can relate to this issue.

The April snow melt means kayakers are taking to the rivers of the White Mountains. If you have never see these guys, check 'em out! They provide great entertainment for all ages and are a fun group to photograph. For me, watching them solidifies why we need to conserve the White Mountain National Forest.

Unit 36 of the Kanc 7 Timber Harvest Project  during the spring months in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The harvest method for Unit 36 was Group/STS (Group Selection & Single Tree Selection). Referenced from the Kanc 7 proposed package documents. Signs of the timber harvest project are visible when traveling along the Kancamagus Scenic Byway.

This is also the time when environmental and conservation photographers start shooting new projects and / or continue to work on long turn projects we started in past years. See new imagery from this month here.

Happy image making..
