November Scenes, New Hampshire – The month of November has been very long and drawn out, but in a good way. For me, most months fly by, and there never seems to be enough time in a day to complete all the tasks I need to complete, but for some reason I am all caught up and ahead of schedule this month. I even started photographing an abandoned farm settlement this month that I initially planned to shoot next summer.

I have always enjoyed being in the White Mountains during this time of year. The changing of the seasons and breathing in the crisp mountain air reminders of what is to come. And around this time I start to wonder what type of winter are we going to have. Will it be a winter with lots of snow or will it be an extremely cold winter, with little snow. Living in the White Mountains, I prefer winters with lots of snow.

The site of the schoolhouse in the ghost town of Livermore during the month of November. This was a logging town in the late 19th and early 20th centuries along the Sawyer River Railroad in New Hampshire.The town and railroad were owned by the Saunders family.

I made one last trip to the Village of Livermore this month. Livermore was a logging town in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was incorporated by the state of New Hampshire in 1876 and officially dissolved in 1951. You can read my blog article on the ghost town of Livermore here.

I spent a number of days this month on the coast of Maine in the area of Camden, Rockland, Owls Head, and Port Clyde. Two highlights of my trip were visiting the Mt. Battie Tower (above) on the summit of Mt. Battie in Camden Hills State Park, and walking the almost mile long breakwater that leads to the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse. All beautiful areas worth visiting if you are ever traveling in the state of Maine.

A cellar hole from the 1800s along the old North and South Road (now Long Pond Road) in Benton, New Hampshire during the month of November. Based on an 1860 historical map of Grafton County this was the homesite of Josiah F. Jeffers.

This month, I was able to start photographing the abandoned farming settlement in the area of the old North and South Road in Coventry-Benton, New Hampshire. Based on an 1860 historical map of Grafton County the above cellar hole, which dates back to the 1800's, was the homestead of Josiah F. Jeffers.
