Legitimate Flagging, White Mountains

Flagging and yellow blazing on birch tree along the Mount Tecumseh Trail in the White Mountains, New Hampshire USA. The Mt Tecumseh Trail is a perfect example – For a short time, a number of trees along the trail had unmarked survey flagging tape on them. These flagged trees were part of research being done by one of the local colleges. Once the field research was completed the flagging was removed. Mt Tecumseh Trail seems be the focal point of research because flagging is always on big and small trees along the trail.

Legitimate Flagging (survey tape) – On a recent trail inspection with a Forest Service assistant district ranger, one topic of discussion was flagging tape on trees along the trail system of the White Mountains. I want to point out that some of the survey flagging tape you see along trails in the White Mountains marks trees that are being used for research. Much of this flagging has no identifying marks on it, and there is no way to determine its purpose. Once the research is finished, proper parties hike up the trail and remove the flagging.

Moose, White Mountains – I do not specialize in wildlife photography, but do have limited wildlife imagery on file. Moose are beautiful creatures, and I have enjoyed photographing the ones I have come across, but my focus has always been on other areas of the environment.

Over the past decade, while documenting the New England environment I have created a handful of moose imagery that is available for advertising, editorial, and commercial publications. See the included link for more moose images and feel free to send me an email with questions or comments.

Cannon Mountain – Franconia, NH 

Top 10 images of 2011 – Hard to believe another year is gone! Where does the time go? I decided on a pretty radical plan for 2011 with much of my focus on the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The outcome has been very positive and after ten years of visiting one location over and over, I finally walked away with an image I am happy with! Yes its included! Though much my photography work is done deep in the forests of the mountains, my favorites this year are of known locations. I am not sure if any of these images are stand outs, but they are my favorite ones for today. Let me know what you think?

Arethusa Falls – Harts Location, New Hampshire

White Mountains, New Hampshire Waterfalls – One of the greatest challenges of a nature photographer is to photograph a waterfall scene differently than the last thousand photographers who photographed it. Many of the easily accessible waterfalls in the White Mountains have been captured from every possible angle, so trying to find a different perspective can be a tough task for any photographer.
