Scenes of December, New Hampshire – December is one of my favorite times of the year here in the White Mountains because the landscape is usually covered in snow. And unlike last year, the landscape is covered in snow this month! It has been snowing on and off all month, and the temperatures have been on the cool side. The snow-covered mountains look great! And I can’t wait to get back to shooting after my vacation.

Since January of 2013, I have written one blog article every month that showcases five images I created during the month. These articles were intended to help you understand my lifestyle as a photographer. Well, it is time to replace this monthly article topic with a new one. I am thinking the new article topic will be “My Viewpoint”.

Scenes of November, New Hampshire

Scenes of November, New Hampshire – November in the White Mountains is unlike any other month. For a short period of time during this month, in between leaf peeping and ski season, the region is comparable to a ghost town. And as a photographer, I like this time of year because I can move around the White Mountains without getting in the way of others who are visiting the region.

If you have followed my work for any length of time, you know that my monthly shooting schedule is planned out in advance. For this month, seventy percent of shooting was very local and focused on one of the old hill farming communities in the area.

Six images from the month of October – The month of October is one of my favorite times of the year to be out shooting and exploring the White Mountains. As we came into the autumn season this year many, including myself, were unsure how the foliage was going to look here in the New Hampshire White Mountains. Well, it turns out the 2016 autumn foliage season was the best I have seen in years.

Like every other month of the year, my shooting schedule was planned out in advance for October. I had very specific locations this month that I needed to shoot in peak foliage. However, I did leave one day open just to roam around the White Mountains aimlessly with my camera, something I don’t usually do these days.

Scenes of September, New Hampshire

Scenes of September, New Hampshire – As I look back at the month of September, I have realized that it has been a very busy month. And as usual, there is never enough time in the day to get everything done that needs to be done. At any rate. September is one of my favorite months of the year here in the White Mountains because it is the start of autumn foliage season. I also love the cool nights that come with this month. 

My shooting schedule this month had me shooting many different subjects. I spent time shooting historic stone structures, landscapes, conservation issues, and a few forgotten waterfalls. I also did some scouting in northern New Hampshire in preparation for the autumn foliage season. And I spent some time exploring the backroads of the White Mountains.

Scenes of August, New Hampshire

Five images from the month of August – I can’t believe the month of August is just about over. And I realize that I am starting to repeat myself here but the time just flies by now. The White Mountains have been crazy this month. Parking at trailheads has been overflowing midweek, swimming holes packed, and moving around downtown Lincoln has been a slow process. But it is great to see people enjoying the White Mountains.

For the most part, my shooting schedule is planned out every month, and I very seldom roam aimlessly around the New Hampshire White Mountains with a camera. Once my schedule is set, I have to create an image of a given location no matter the conditions, and the included water scenes reflect this.

Scenes of July, New Hampshire

Scenes of July, New Hampshire – As I sit here and write this blog article today, I can’t believe the month of July is over, and August is knocking at the door. This month flew by, and the weather has been a little on the humid side for me. I can’t help wonder what the weather is going to be in August. I have always enjoyed the summer months, but the older I get, the more and more I prefer shooting in the cold days of winter.

This month I have been mainly focused on shooting a long term project that I have been working on over the last few years. And at this stage of the game, I am shooting mostly in the Northern Presidential Range of the New Hampshire White Mountains.

Scenes of June, New Hampshire – Last month, I mentioned that many locals believe the 2016 summer season here in the White Mountains is going to be an extremely busy one. I have already seen an increase in tourism (biking, fishing, hiking, swimming, etc.) in my travels of the White Mountains region during the month of June. After a dismal ski season, this will be a great boost for the local economy.

Even though Coos and Grafton counties are currently under a flash flood watch, June has been a dry month. Many of the brooks and rivers here in the White Mountains are running low, to the point where a few are almost dried up. Other than not receiving much rain this month, the weather has been great. And I have been making the most out of the long summer days to create new imagery.
