Scenes of March, New Hampshire – The weather here in the New Hampshire White Mountains during the month of March has been very interesting. The lower elevations have been snow-free for most of the month, and the higher elevations can be best described as an icy mess. And because of the mild winter and warm weather, bears are coming out of their dens early.

Being a native to New Hampshire, who loves the serenity of a snow-covered forest, I have always preferred winters that have large amounts of snow. Well, the 2015-2016 winter season is officially over, and we hardly had any snow here in the White Mountains, but I took advantage of the snow-less winter and scouted out areas I will be shooting in the spring and summer seasons.

March, White Mountains

March, White Mountains – In the White Mountains of New Hampshire, March marks the start of spring, but you would never know it with the amount of snow still in the backcountry. We have had cloudy days, cold days, warm days, rainy days and a few snowy days this month. I can honestly say I will be glad when I can officially put the snowshoes away this season.

When I first got into photography, seventeen years ago, I had envisioned hiking all over the White Mountains photographing endless sunrises and sunsets from mountain tops, but was given a reality check when I realized the New England photography market was, and still is, flooded with this type of imagery. I decided to make a change back then and focus on environmental subjects, and less mountain sunrise and sunset scenes. Today, I look at these five images and realize that one single decision I made many years ago put me on track.

Scenes of March, White Mountains – The 2013 / 2014 winter season is officially over, but you would never know it by the amount of snow still on the ground and cold temperatures we are having in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The snow cover has been amazing this year!

I am sad to see winter come to an end, but at the same time am happy it is officially spring. Shooting in this cold and windy winter season has worn me out this year. Or maybe I am starting to slow down some with age.

Scenes of March, New Hampshire

Swift River during the winter months in Albany, New Hampshire USA. This river travels along side of the Kancamagus Scenic Byway, which is one of New England's scenic byways. Mount Passaconaway is off in the distance.

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.

March 2011 "Super Worm" full moon – Hope everyone had a chance to see the March "Super Worm" full moon. The above scene is was from along the Kancamagus Highway in the White Mountains of New Hampshire USA.

There were no interesting foreground subjects and with some pretty good wind gusts, I decided to focus on only the moon and not mess around with slow shutter speeds (needed to get some foreground detail). It was amazing to see the moon orange!
