December, White Mountains – Is another year really gone? Wow time flies! For me, December means cleaning external hard drives, more research for 2014 projects, and time off to enjoy the holidays.

Cleaning hard drives involves going through external hard drives filled with imagery I shot during 2013 and deleting the images I will never use. I learned early on not to delete images right away, unless they were just plain bad or out of focus. This approach usually leads to finding images I overlooked during the year, but that is for another blog post, today is about images from the month of December.

Even though I planned on doing office work for most of December, I did get out and shoot. I stayed near home and shot in the Franconia Notch State Park region of the White Mountains. If visiting the White Mountains, I recommend exploring the roadside attractions along Franconia Notch Parkway in Franconia Notch.

This month has been very cold and weather gurus claimed temperatures were down to – 25 degrees in parts of the White Mountains. Cannon Mountain Ski Area has been making snow on the front five. It is an awesome site to see and best described as controlled chaos.

I'm going to end the year of 2013 by saying thank you to everybody that has supported me over the years and continues to support me. Your positive feedback inspires me. Thank you for an awesome 2013! 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
