Welcome to the photoblog of Erin Paul Donovan, a professional photographer located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire USA.
Specializing in environmental conservation and historic preservation photography mainly in the New Hampshire White Mountains. Image archive consists of forgotten history and landscape scenes of the White Mountains and New England region.
Mount Osceola Trail – White Mountains, New Hampshire
Mount Osceola Trail, White Mountains – The New Hampshire White Mountains have been photographed inside and out and possibly from every vantage point. And it has become common to see identical shots of a location from two, three or four photographers. Some images are so identical it looks as if photographers set up their tripods in the same spot.
One of the greatest challenges of a photographer in the White Mountains is to find a different perspective of any location. Looking for a different perspective has become such a habit I often overlook simple scenes.
Mount Chocorua Scenic Area – White Mountains, New Hampshire
Mount Chocorua Scenic Area, New Hampshire – Mount Chocorua is not a roadside attraction and requires photographers to hike a number of miles before reaching the summit. With numerous trails leading to Mount Chocorua, it is best you pick up a trail map and decide what route you want to hike. If you are not interested in hiking to the summit, you can also photograph Mount Chocorua from Chocorua Lake. Chocorua Lake is easy to access from along Route 16.
The hike is only about a 20 minute hike (one way) from Echo Lake, but the views are worth it! Hopefully on the day of your visit clouds will dominate the sky, making for the perfect White Mountains scene.
East Branch of the Pemi River – North Fork Junction
East Branch of the Pemigewasset River, New Hampshire – I have a long list of locations in the White Mountains that I return to over and over to create imagery. And one of my favorites is the area surrounding the 15 mile long East Branch of the Pemigewasset River (East Branch of the Pemi) in Lincoln, New Hampshire. The East Branch of the Pemi begins deep in the Pemigewasset Wilderness in the area of Stillwater Junction.
The Presidential Range from Mount Pierce – White Mountains, NH
Mount Pierce, Great Place To Start – One of the easier and best "bang for your buck" hikes in the White Mountains of New Hampshire is Mount Pierce. You get alpine expose and beautiful views of the Presidential Range. All with the option of being able to retreat to the cover of the forest quickly. Very little of this hike is exposed, which makes it great training for hikers new to winter hiking. It is also a great area to practice using your camera in alpine conditions.

Lonesome Lake, Bull Moose – Yesterday morning (Thursday) I took a quick trip up to Lonesome Lake in the White Mountains, New Hampshire to do some exploring. As I came around a bend in the trail I was surprised when I bumped into a moose standing in the middle of the trail! He was more interested in eating twigs than me. I watched him from a safe distance for almost twenty minutes before he decided to move off the trail far enough so I could safely pass.
Mt Washington Alpine Flowers – During the spring months, tiny alpine flowers bloom on New Hampshire's Mount Washington. And one of the best areas to see these flowers is in the Alpine Garden, along the Alpine Garden Trail. The Alpine Garden Trail is on the eastern slopes of Mt Washington. And many consider this trail to be one of the best places in the White Mountains to see alpine flora.
The alpine flowers included in this blog article can be found along the Alpine Garden Trail. And when the alpine flowers are in full bloom, the eastern slopes of Mt Washington is an incredible area to visit. You can also find these alpine flowers (in the alpine zone) in other areas of the Presidential Range.
