Landslide Path, Hancock Mountain Range – August, 2011
Hancock Mountains Landslide, 2011 – The above landslide, seen from along the East Branch of the Pemigewasset River, in August 2011, is on the side of the Hancock Mountain Range in the Pemigewasset Wilderness, New Hampshire. This was an old landslide that was in the process of being natural regenerated. And sometime during Tropical Storm Irene, heavy rains caused it to slide again. The new landslide path looks to follow the track of the old one.
From 6:00 PM Saturday, August 27, 2011, through midnight Monday, August 29, 2011, the White Mountain National Forest was officially closed because of Tropical Storm Irene. This storm caused massive damage along the East Coast, and the White Mountains region of New Hampshire was heavily impacted.

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.
