Echo Lake During An October Night – Franconia Notch, New Hampshire
Scenes of October, New Hampshire – The month of October is one of my favorite times of the year to be out shooting and exploring the White Mountains. As we came into the autumn season this year many, including myself, were unsure how the foliage was going to look here in the New Hampshire White Mountains. Well, it turns out the 2016 autumn foliage season was the best I have seen in years.
Like every other month of the year, my shooting schedule was planned out in advance for October. I had very specific locations this month that I needed to shoot in peak foliage. However, I did leave one day open just to roam around the White Mountains aimlessly with my camera, something I don’t usually do these days.

Five images from the month of October – Is the month of October really coming to an end already? With the cool nights, most of the autumn foliage on the ground, and Mount Washington receiving snow, I would say November is knocking on the door, and it won’t be long before the landscape is covered in snow. It is time to close the books on October and work our way through another month.
This has been one the strangest autumn foliage seasons I have seen in a long time in the White Mountains. The foliage was delayed this year, but it did eventually appear, and it was not the greatest of foliage, but not the worst either. As a photographer, I have learned to work with whatever scene nature presents to me, and the mediocre foliage this year was a nonissue for me.

Five images from the month of October – Here in the White Mountains October is all about autumn foliage, and nothing else matters during this time of year, except beautiful foliage scenes. I would use spectacular and breathtaking to describe the 2014 foliage season. A few of the sunrises this month were also impressive!
This month I added a new photography resource page to ScenicNH Photography. It is mostly for photographers visiting the White Mountains, but you may find it interesting. There are many websites focused on the White Mountains, and it is tough to know which ones are credible resources. Hopefully, the White Mountains resource page will introduce you to a few beneficial websites you were unaware of. You can look it over here.
Wildlife Pond – Bethlehem, New Hampshire
Five images from the month of October– In the New England region, October is all about autumn foliage. Photographers and tourists flock to the area to view the breathtaking foliage that takes over the region.
October is my busiest month of the year. Much of my time is spent traveling to photograph the foliage. The autumn foliage looked incredible this year, but peak foliage only lasted a few days in the mountains region. I'm always amazed at how fast the foliage season comes and goes.
