Snow, White Mountains Weather Photos – During the winter months, the New Hampshire White Mountains come to life. Skiers take to the ski resorts, snowmobilers ride the hundreds of miles of groomed trails, and hikers explore the snow-covered trails. Winters that produce lots of snow are good for the New Hampshire economy (tourism industry), while the winters that have little snowfall can be detrimental to the local economy.

My favorite time of year to shoot in the White Mountains is during the winter season. When covered in snow the landscape of the White Mountains is transformed into a peaceful winter wonderland. Included in this blog article are a few snow scenes that showcase the winter season.

Five locations to photograph foliage – Here in the White Mountains of New Hampshire the foliage season has begun. I think the 2014 foliage season is going to be impressive and maybe the best we have had in years. Today, I want to share with you some great places in the White Mountains where you can view and photograph the autumn foliage.

Pinkham Notch, Route 16 – Pinkham Notch (above) is crazy during the autumn season, but the foliage is worth it! You do not have to venture far off Route 16 to see the impressive display of autumn. The area is very busy during the autumn season, and you will not be alone, not even early in the morning.

Five images from the month of June – The month of June in the White Mountains has been interesting. I am not sure where to start, the rain or the overcast days. We are currently stuck in a dreary weather pattern that is making many question if the summer season is going to be washout. I hope not, but realize anything is possible when it comes to mother nature. Even with the poor weather I did manage to photograph the Lupine Festival and Frankenstein Trestle on beautiful days.

Crawford Notch State Park - Frankenstein Trestle  along the Maine Central Railroad in the White Mountains, New Hampshire USA. Chartered in 1867 as the Portland & Ogdensburg Railroad Company then leased to the Maine Central Railroad in 1888 and later abandoned in 1983. Since 1995 the Conway Scenic Railroad, which provides passenger excursion trains has been using the track.

For the railroad buffs, if you have never visited Frankenstein Trestle in Crawford Notch State Park, I suggest you do. It is one of the coolest trestles I have photographed in New England. It also has excellent views of the Notch.

Five images from the month of April – I find April to be one of the more challenging months to produce imagery. The landscape is usually covered in "dirty snow", making it tough to produce clean looking imagery. Nothing drives me crazier than a beautiful mountain scene with dirty snow in the foreground! Yes, I'm complaining some but know many photographers can relate to this issue.
