RiverWalk Resort – Village of Lincoln, New Hampshire
Forgotten Lincoln, New Hampshire – On January 31, 1764, Governor Benning Wentworth granted 24,000 acres of land to James Avery of Connecticut and others. Avery was also granted the town of Landaff on the same day. None of the grantees lived in Lincoln, and it is likely that they never visited the township. Lincoln was named after Henry Fiennes Pelham-Clinton, 2nd Duke of Newcastle, 9th Earl of Lincoln.
Per the charter, the grantees failed to settle the town in time. And in 1772 the Governor declared the Lincoln charter a forfeit and re-granted Lincoln, along with most of Franconia, to Sir Francis Bernard and others. The name of the new township was Morristown in honor of Corbin Morris, one of the grantees.

Abandoned Vehicles, White Mountains – Over the years, I have documented a number of abandoned vehicles in the New Hampshire White Mountains, and today I want to share some of them with you. These forgotten relics make great photo subjects. Personally, I love coming across them in the middle of nowhere.
New England outdoor photographers should have a few abandoned vehicles on file. This type of imagery can be used in numerous ways to represent the outdoor environment. And some art collectors do like this type of subject matter for their walls.

Northeast Foliage season is in full swing – The New Hampshire White Mountains region is exploding with color! Every corner of the region is displaying color, so much it is overwhelming. The roads have been bumper to bumper with leaf peepers, and every scenic pull off is jammed packed with vehicles. If you are looking to get away from the crowds, exploring one of the Northeast's backroads may be you best bet.
I can not wait to see what the foliage looks like on a bright sunny day! We have not seen the sun for the last five days, and all shooting has been done in rain, fog and overcast conditions. Though the cloud cover has been a great natural diffuser, it is time for the sun. I would also like to dry off my rain gear at some point.
