Scenes of March, New Hampshire

Scenes of March, New Hampshire – During March I spent a few days shooting along the Kancamagus Scenic Byway in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I wanted to shoot a few locations along the Byway that have eluded me over the years, but was mainly interested in the Passaconaway settlement.

Just like January and February, March had a few snowstorms that created breathtaking snowscapes. To be in a forest after a snowstorm should be on everyone's bucket list. Its just a great feeling! Heres a few images from this month. Hope you enjoy them.

February, New Hampshire – When shooting for the ScenicNH Photography archive I find self assignments and a little direction to be very beneficial. On top of my everyday shooting, I try to focus on one subject every month that is connected to the environment.

Examples of past subjects I have focused on include extreme weather, backcountry camping impact, and trail stewardship. This approach has allowed me to build an extensive, marketable and profitable image archive of the White Mountains. The subject for this month is "snowshoe tracks", see some shots below.

Northeast Foliage season is in full swing – The New Hampshire White Mountains region is exploding with color! Every corner of the region is displaying color, so much it is overwhelming. The roads have been bumper to bumper with leaf peepers, and every scenic pull off is jammed packed with vehicles. If you are looking to get away from the crowds, exploring one of the Northeast's backroads may be you best bet.

I can not wait to see what the foliage looks like on a bright sunny day! We have not seen the sun for the last five days, and all shooting has been done in rain, fog and overcast conditions. Though the cloud cover has been a great natural diffuser, it is time for the sun. I would also like to dry off my rain gear at some point.

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…..
