Landslide Path, Hancock Mountain Range – August, 2011
Hancock Mountains Landslide, 2011 – The above landslide, seen from along the East Branch of the Pemigewasset River, in August 2011, is on the side of the Hancock Mountain Range in the Pemigewasset Wilderness, New Hampshire. This was an old landslide that was in the process of being natural regenerated. And sometime during Tropical Storm Irene, heavy rains caused it to slide again. The new landslide path looks to follow the track of the old one.
From 6:00 PM Saturday, August 27, 2011, through midnight Monday, August 29, 2011, the White Mountain National Forest was officially closed because of Tropical Storm Irene. This storm caused massive damage along the East Coast, and the White Mountains region of New Hampshire was heavily impacted.

March's Super Worm Moon
March 2011 "Super Worm" full moon – Hope everyone had a chance to see the March "Super Worm" full moon. The above scene is was from along the Kancamagus Highway in the White Mountains of New Hampshire USA.
There were no interesting foreground subjects and with some pretty good wind gusts, I decided to focus on only the moon and not mess around with slow shutter speeds (needed to get some foreground detail). It was amazing to see the moon orange!
