Snyder Brook Valley From The Inlook Trail – Randolph, New Hampshire
Snyder Brook Waterfalls, White Mountains – Located in the New Hampshire town of Randolph and the township of Low and Burbank's Grant Snyder Brook is a photographer’s and waterfall enthusiasts paradise. The lower portion of Snyder Brook is within the thirty-six acre Snyder Brook Scenic Area, which contains an impressive stand of old growth hemlock and red spruce.
In September of 1875 William G. Nowell, a 19th century trail builder, named Snyder Brook after Charles E. Lowe’s dog (ref: 1915 Appalachia Vol.13). Lowe was also a 19th century trail builder and mountain guide. Lowe and Nowell are credited for building Lowe’s Path in 1875-1876, one of the oldest trails in continuous use in the White Mountains. An 1896 map of Randolph indicates that Snyder Brook was once known as Salmacis Brook.
Windy Conditions – Mt Tecumseh, White Mountains
Windy Weather, White Mountains – As an environmental photographer, I try to document every aspect of nature that is interesting. I also try to think out of the box and create images that will be beneficial to have on file for future use. Weather related images are always in demand and are good to have on file.
I find it a challenge to create images that showcase the power of wind, winter and nature. To create a great image that includes these three elements everything has to line up perfectly, and most times they don’t. Being in the right place at the right time does help, but this means shooting in less than ideal conditions and my camera gear does take a beaten.
