The above image from the alpine zone, along the Airline Trail, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire would have little impact and viewing interest ...

February, New Hampshire

Franconia Notch State Park - White Mountains, NH
Franconia Notch State Park - Lincoln, NH February, New Hampshire - When shooting for the ScenicNH Photography archive I find self assignments and a little direction to be very beneficial. On top of my everyday shooting, I try to focus on one subject every month that is connected to the environment. Examples of past subjects I have focused on include extreme weather, backcountry camping impact, and trail stewardship.

Nature In Its Grandest Form

Harvard Brook - Lincoln, NH Stock Photo
Harvard Brook - Lincoln, New Hampshire USA As I look at these images, I realize just how much I appreciate the simple scenes of the White Mountain National Forest.

Photos With A Foreground
Halibut Point State Park - Cape Ann, Massachusetts Photos With A Foreground - The foreground is defined as part of a scene that is nearest to the viewer. Most photographers believe a strong foreground completes a scene. I try to include an interesting foreground subject whenever possible. If done properly, the foreground subject will relate to the scene. It does not always work out this way, but it is nice when it does ...
