Lost River – Kinsman Notch, New Hampshire
 

Kinsman Notch, New Hampshire – Kinsman Notch is located in the White Mountains between Mount Moosilauke and the Kinsman Range. Lost River drains to the southeast and the Wild Ammonoosuc River drains to the northwest. The Notch is mostly known for Lost River Reservation, Beaver Brook Cascades and Beaver Pond, but hidden among the hills is an incredible landscape that most have never explored.

Over the years, I have visited some breathtaking places in the less traveled areas of Kinsman Notch. And today I am going to show a few of these places. Kinsman Notch is an awesome area to hike and explore, and photographers with creative minds will have a field day in this area.

Kinsman Notch, Beaver Brook Cascades

Kinsman Notch - Beaver Brook Cascades during the spring months. These cascades are located along the Appalachian Tail in the White Mountain National Forest of New Hampshire USA. These wodnerful cascades are on the side of the Appalachian Trail in Kinsman Notch and offer a great spot to relax and take in nature.

The last few days I have been shooting in one of New Hampshire's windiest notches, Kinsman Notch. I'm always amazed at how the wind blows through this notch! Sometimes wind gusts are so strong they knock you off balance! On top of windy conditions, morning fog has also been an issue.

Early on one morning I managed to create these images along Beaver Brook. The fog acted like a diffuser and burned out the sun allowing for nice even and manageable light across the brook. No hot spots anywhere, a photographer's dream! You can see the fog in the upper half of the above image.

Erosion, Self Funded Photography Projects

August 2013 - Trail washout along the Lincoln Woods Trail next to the East Branch of the Pemigewasset River in Lincoln, New Hampshire USA from Tropical Storm Irene in 2011. This tropical storm / hurricane caused destruction along the East coast of the United States and the White Mountain National Forest of New Hampshire was officially closed during the storm.

Self Funded Photography Projects – As a freelance photographer, stock photography sales still play an important part of everyday business. These sales come from established clients, off the street clients and agencies that represent me. To add fresh imagery to ScenicNH Photography, I do self funded projects. Some of these projects last days, months or even years. One has even become a lifelong body of work.

Sitting back and waiting for photo requests and assignments does not work for me, so I am always producing imagery I feel will be profitable for future stock sales. I learned early on that there is not much of a market for generic landscape imagery, so I try to photograph subject matter that has impact on the environment.
