Forest Landscapes, White Mountains – As an environmental photographer, it is only natural for me to have a large selection of forest landscapes in the image archive. A forest absent of the daily noises we have become accustomed to hearing brings me serenity. Today I would like to share some of these forest scenes with you. If you’re interested in viewing a slideshow containing forests click here.

I enjoy all the types of forest in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, but at the top of my list are the birch glades along the abandoned Fire Wardens Trail on Mt Hale (above). I just love the way the birch trees look in this area. A similar image represents November in the 2015 White Mountains calendar.

Looking down into King Ravine from Chemin Des Dames Trail in the Northern Presidential Range of the White Mountains, New Hampshire USA during the autumn season. Snow can be found in the ice caves of this ravine during the summer months.

Since autumn is just around the corner, its only fitting to include an autumn scene in this post. Above is the view into King Ravine from the Chemin Des Dames Trail. King Ravine is an incredible place to visit any time of year, but during the foliage season the landscape is breathtaking. View more images of King Ravine here.

Over the summer, I spent time shooting in the back-country of Kinsman Notch, New Hampshire. The forest in Kinsman Notch is picturesque and is some of the best I have photographed in the White Mountains. And the yellow birch is huge is some parts of the notch! Above is a hardwood forest on the northern slopes of Mount Waternomee. View more images of Kinsman Notch here.

Snow covered forest along the Hancock Loop Trail in the White Mountains, New Hampshire USA during the winter months.

The Hancock Loop Trail (above) offers excellent opportunities to create forest scenes during the winter months. And an added bonus is climbing Arrow Slide if you are into that kind of thing.

Hemlock - spruce - northern hardwood Forest during the summer months in the area of the Deer Brook drainage of Albany, New Hampshire USA. This area is part of the proposed Northeast Swift Timber Project.

Areas of the White Mountains do contain some old and mature trees. The Table Mountain Roadless Area in Albany, New Hampshire contains some of the bigger hemlocks I have photographed in the White Mountains region.
