Scenes of February, White Mountains – With schools taking winter break (February vacation) this month, the White Mountains of New Hampshire have been very busy. Many families visit the region to ski, explore the trails and to get away from the city life. Downtown Lincoln has been a zoo the last few weeks.
Every month I do a blog post showcasing five images I created during the month. They're intended to help you understand my lifestyle as a photographer and to show the range of imagery I have on file.
Much like January, February has had interesting weather. We have had lots of snow this month in the White Mountains. The forests look incredible covered in fresh snow!
I spent a day in Kinsman Notch, along the Appalachian Trail, photographing forest scenes. Kinsman Notch has pockets of interesting old yellow birches and weather damaged trees. The amount of storm damaged trees in the White Mountains is staggering. The next time you are hiking a trail take note to all the snapped trees.
One of the many subjects I will be focusing on this year is forests, so I'm excited to add these new images to the forest disturbances gallery of the image archive. Even though they are not dramatic landscapes of the White Mountains they will be beneficial to have on file for future usage.
I spent part of February recovering from an injury so my time in the field was very limited. I did manage to hike Mount Tecumseh in Waterville Valley. Tecumseh is still one of my favorite easy hikes in the White Mountains. The snow cover is excellent in the Waterville Valley area.
My last blog post on the Russell snow plow in Bartlett had me thinking about how important it is to preserve the White Mountains for future generations. I hope today's children get to enjoy the forests you and I play in every day. To view more images from this month see the new images gallery.
Happy image making..
