January Scenes, New Hampshire

January, New Hampshire – This month’s weather has been a little on the crazy side, and we seem to be having an endless stretch of cold temperatures. Every trip I took into the White Mountains during the month of January has been on overcast days or cold windy days, and the sunsets have been a bust.

January is a great time to make a change, and this year I have decided to handle a few things differently than past years. Most of you are aware that I document environmental issues in the White Mountains, but this year I am publicly sharing the issues I will be documenting in 2015. Take a look when you get a chance here.

This month I shot a work made for hire project (commissioned work), prepared 2016 projects, and spent much of my time working on the business side of photography. For people who enjoy the reality side of freelance photography, in the month of January, I only spent about seven days out in the field creating new imagery.

Sabbaday Falls during the winter months. These falls are located off the Kancamagus Highway (route 112) in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

On one of January's overcast days, I spent a couple of hours shooting at Sabbaday Falls. Sabbaday Falls is a short walk off the Kancamagus Highway in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire. The area around the falls is very icy during the winter months and caution needs to be given when admiring them. A great place to visit!

This month I set up my tripod on one of the viewpoints along Boulder Loop Trail in Albany, New Hampshire and waited for the sun to set. As you can see in the above and below images clouds dominated the sky. If you are looking for a fairly easy hike with great views I highly recommend this trail. The views are excellent, and most photographers will find it interesting.

With January coming to an end, I want to point out I still have 2015 White Mountains calendars available. If you are interested in purchasing one see the below link for more information. You can view more outdoor images from the month of January here.

Happy image making..
