Saco Lake – Carroll, New Hampshire
Mountain Reflections, New Hampshire – I have always thought the perfect New Hampshire landscape scene includes a mountain, a lake or pond, and clouds reflecting in the water. I think including all three of these elements in a scene makes for an interesting and unique photograph. And one of the bonuses of these types of photos is cloud formations are usually different day to day, so no two images are identical.
To pick a favorite mountain reflection photo from my image archive would take me many hours so instead of doing that I am going to post a few locations that have excellent reflection scenes. These locations may interest hikers, photographers, and visitors exploring the New Hampshire White Mountains.
Beaver Pond – Kinsman Notch, New Hampshire
Beaver Pond, Kinsman Notch – Beaver Pond is a roadside attraction located along Route 112 in Kinsman Notch of the White Mountains, New Hampshire. This is a great pond to photograph during the autumn season. I find early in the morning when a reflection of the mountains can be captured in the pond the best time. The mountain reflection in Beaver Pond is excellent!
Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge – Jefferson, New Hampshire USA
Quick Update September 25, 2011:
Colors are starting to show in the Northern half of New Hampshire and the White Mountain region. Neither area is at peak yet, but the colors look good. Nice color can be found in the area of Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge in Jefferson, New Hampshire. The above image is from earlier this week.
Echo Lake State Park – North Conway, New Hampshire
Lakes & Ponds, White Mountains – Everywhere I go in the White Mountains region of New Hampshire I am photographing some form of water. It makes no difference if it is the roaring Swift River or small wetlands area deep in the Pemigewasset Wilderness, water is present in many of my images.
Water seems to be unavoidable and is in 60% of my images, so I thought I would be fun to watch (above) a slideshow of my favorite lakes and ponds in the White Mountains region. Most of these waterscapes are easy to reach, but some do require a full day of hiking to reach.
