April, White Mountains – 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.

Fields of Lupine Festival, New Hampshire – If you are visiting the White Mountains region in the month of June and are looking for a location to photograph, the Fields of Lupine Festival in Sugar Hill should fit your needs. The Fields of Lupine Festival is held annually in the month of June and attracts visitors from around the world. Every year in June the fields of Sugar Hill are transformed into a mesmerizing display of purple lupine.
Liberty Gorge, Franconia Notch – Cascade Brook flows through this gorge in the Flume Gorge area of Franconia Notch State Park in Lincoln, New Hampshire. And it is one of the many interesting natural features of Franconia Notch. Today, this water feature is known both as Liberty Gorge and Liberty Gorge Cascades.
Known as Langton's Cascades (named for Mr. Langton, a regular summer guest at the Flume House)* in the 1800s, this gorge was forgotten about until 1928 when the former Flume director C.T. Bodwell rediscovered it. At the time, Bodwell could find no one who knew about it, so he named it “Tawadina Gorge”. And the gorge did appear on a circa 1934 map of the Flume area as Tawadina Gorge, but it would be renamed Liberty Gorge.
Swift River, White Mountains – Living in the White Mountains of New Hampshire I have the benefit of being able to photograph locations during all four seasons. One area of the White Mountains I have photographed in every season is the Swift River along the Kancamagus Scenic Bypass.
When building an image archive, photographing locations in every season can be beneficial, but photographers must keep in mind that building a successful image archive involves photographing new locations and scenes, not photographing the some scene over and over.
