Kancamagus Scenic Byway – White Mountains
Kancamagus Scenic Byway, New Hampshire – The Kancamagus Scenic Byway, located in New Hampshire, is considered one of the best scenic drives in the Northeast. It is about 35 miles long and was opened in 1959 after two dead end roads, one in Lincoln and the other in Conway, were connected.
This scenic road is known worldwide for it outstanding foliage during the autumn months. And though the scenic byway attracts the most visitors during the autumn months, I think it is a great area to explore any time of year. Photographers will have endless photo opportunities.
(Number 1) Lost Pond – White Mountains, NH
It's hard to pick only ten images to represent a year, but I think I managed. Since most of my focus and projects were in the White Mountains, I decided to only include imagery from the mountains.
1) Pinkham Notch – Lost Pond on the side the Appalachian Trail. The reflection of Mount Washington and Huntington Ravine are excellent and worth a early morning visit.
Tributary of Lost River – Woodstock, New Hampshire
There still is autumn color to be found. You just have to look for it. The above image is along a tributary of Lost River in Woodstock, New Hampshire USA on a rainy overcast day.
Stormy Weather, Bondcliff – White Mountains, NH
Perspective, Pemigewasset Wilderness – One of the challenges of a photographer focused on the New England environment is finding a different perspective of locations that have been photographed thousands of times. I approach this issue by focusing on entire areas, such as the Pemigewasset Wilderness, and not just one popular location in the Pemigewasset Wilderness. The included photos show a perspective of the 45,000 acre Pemigewasset Wilderness you may have never seen.
The above shot of a hiker surrounded by storm clouds on New Hampshire's Bondcliff Mountain shows a side of the wilderness some do not see. Most photos from Bondcliff show the scenic landscape. And there is nothing wrong with this, but so many scenic shots exist that a stormy weather shot will make the viewer look twice.
