Rollo Fall – Randolph, New Hampshire
Lost Waterfalls, White Mountains – I mentioned in last week’s blog article that I will be spending some time this year photographing forgotten waterfalls in the New Hampshire White Mountains. The reason I will be doing this is because many of these lost waterfalls were discovered and named back in the 19th century.
Much like an abandoned hill farm settlement, lost waterfalls are linked to the history of the White Mountains, and I need to include them in my White Mountains history and culture image collection. I usually find reference to lost waterfalls on old maps and in old history and guide books when researching abandoned settlements in the White Mountains.

May, White Mountains – Here in the New Hampshire White Mountains warm weather has finally arrived, and lawns are being mowed again. May is a great time to explore and photograph the many waterfalls in the White Mountains. The waterfalls included in this blog article are nothing more than small brooks during most months, but during spring snowmelt and after heavy rains they become interesting photo subjects.
This month, I spent a few days shooting in the Benton, Easton, Franconia and Landaff area of New Hampshire. I have had a great time photographing a few new locations. A photographer with an open mind will enjoy the many photo opportunities in this area. I also spent three days in the northern portion of the state but have yet to edit the imagery from these days.
