Autumn Foliage – New Hampshire


Autumn Foliage Season Images by ScenicNH Photography LLC

It won't be long before New England is exploding with color! Here is a slideshow to get you in the mood for the autumn foliage season. If you prefer to view the above images in a gallery layout click here.

Will it be an excellent foliage season or a poor one is usually the topic of discussion around this time of year? Its fun reading all the predictions of when peak will be. Some experts are right on while others are way off. Though peak does fluctuate from year to year, I find September 30 – October 7 the best time photograph the foliage in the White Mountains region.

Some of the maples are starting to change here in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, but for the most part it is still very early. Appearance wise, the trees look a lot better right now than they did when Tropical Storm Irene came through in 2011. I think it is going to be a great foliage season!

Photographers planning to visit the White Mountains of New Hampshire only for peak foliage season should keep your camera gear packed and ready because when peak does arrive, more than likely it will not last long. The areas I suggest photographing are Crawford Notch, Franconia Notch and Pinkham Notch. All three locations offer excellent photo opportunities. 

You can research past foliage reports here.

Happy image making…..

Swift River, White Mountains – Living in the White Mountains of New Hampshire I have the benefit of being able to photograph locations during all four seasons. One area of the White Mountains I have photographed in every season is the Swift River along the Kancamagus Scenic Bypass.

When building an image archive, photographing locations in every season can be beneficial, but photographers must keep in mind that building a successful image archive involves photographing new locations and scenes, not photographing the some scene over and over.
