Mount Osceola Trail – White Mountains, New Hampshire
The Simple Shot – The White Mountains of New Hampshire have been photographed inside and out and possibly from every vantage point. It has become common to see identical shots of a location from two, three or four photographers. Some images are so identical it looks as if photographers set up their tripods in the same spot.
One of the greatest challenges of a photographer in the White Mountains is to find a different perspective of any location. Looking for a different perspective has become such a habit I often overlook simple scenes.
