Bald Mountain, Franconia Notch State Park – Located a short distance from Echo Lake in Franconia, New Hampshire is another great location where photographers will have no problem creating images.

The 1859 second edition, of “The White Mountain Guide Book” (Eastman's White Mountain Guide) references that a carriage road had been built the “present season” from the highway, north of the Profile House, to the summit of Bald Mountain.

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.

Abandoned Vehicles, White Mountains – Over the years, I have documented a number of abandoned vehicles in the New Hampshire White Mountains, and today I want to share some of them with you. These forgotten relics make great photo subjects. Personally, I love coming across them in the middle of nowhere.

New England outdoor photographers should have a few abandoned vehicles on file. This type of imagery can be used in numerous ways to represent the outdoor environment. And some art collectors do like this type of subject matter for their walls.
