Dry Brook Waterfalls, Franconia Notch With spring officially here, many are making plans to photograph waterfalls in the New Hampshire White Mountains. Today, I am going to introduce to you three waterfalls in Franconia Notch that may interest you. You may not recognize the name “Dry Brook”. But once you view the included images you will realize that two well known waterfalls in the White Mountains are on it.

These are not roadside waterfalls, and a photographer must hike up the Falling Waters Trail in Franconia Notch to reach them. Be forewarned, the terrain is very rugged, and only ones who are comfortable hiking in rough terrain should venture to these waterfalls. I hate making these comments but feel obligated to.

The last few days I have been shooting in one of New Hampshire's windiest notches, Kinsman Notch. I'm always amazed at how the wind blows through this notch! Sometimes wind gusts are so strong they knock you off balance! On top of windy conditions, morning fog has also been an issue.

Early on one morning I managed to create these images along Beaver Brook. The fog acted like a diffuser and burned out the sun allowing for nice even and manageable light across the brook. No hot spots anywhere, a photographer's dream! You can see the fog in the upper half of the above image.

White Mountains, New Hampshire Waterfalls – One of the greatest challenges of a nature photographer is to photograph a waterfall scene differently than the last thousand photographers who photographed it. Many of the easily accessible waterfalls in the White Mountains have been captured from every possible angle, so trying to find a different perspective can be a tough task for any photographer.

Waterfalls, White Mountains – The White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire is not known for giant waterfalls, but the ones in the region make excellent photography subjects and are fun to explore. They also play an important role in New Hampshire's travel & tourism. Many tourists come to the White Mountains region only to visit the waterfalls.

I am not sure I could pick a  favorite waterfall in the White Mountain National Forest because I enjoy exploring and photographing all of them. I am partial to waterfalls the are off the beaten path such as Ellens Falls, Lafayette Brook Falls, The Other Pitcher Falls, Willey Brook Falls and the many secluded unnamed cascades scattered throughout the region. It is truly is amazing how many "forgotten" waterfalls are in the region.
