Scenes of March, White Mountains – The 2013 / 2014 winter season is officially over, but you would never know it by the amount of snow still on the ground and cold temperatures we are having in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The snow cover has been amazing this year!

I am sad to see winter come to an end, but at the same time am happy it is officially spring. Shooting in this cold and windy winter season has worn me out this year. Or maybe I am starting to slow down some with age.

In March, I managed a trip to Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge in Jefferson, New Hampshire to photograph the Presidential Range at sunset. The weather was perfect and I created a few images that I am happy with. Above is Mount Washington at sunset and below is Mount Washington at blue hour on the same day. The view of the Presidential Range from Pondicherry is incredible!

I have only photographed two places in New Hampshire that leave me speechless. One is the remote regions of the Pemigewasset Wilderness and the other is Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge. To some extent Pondicherry has the same remote feeling the Pemi Wilderness has.

I spent a couple of days shooting the Kanc 7 timber harvest project. The visual impact from this timber harvest can be seen when driving the Kancamagus Scenic Byway. My intent was to produce an image (above) that shows the beauty of the forest within the project area. Below you can see a harvested area on Mount Potash.

With March coming to an end, the snow covered scenes you have been seeing on the blog for the last few months will be replaced with spring scenes. To view more images from March see the new images gallery.

Happy image making..
