Winter Forest Scenes, White Mountains – When most think of the New Hampshire White Mountains, they think of the mountain landscapes that dominate the region, and not the actual forests, lakes, trails, and wetlands that make up the landscape. Today I want to share with you a few winter forest scenes that showcase the White Mountains. Maybe they will give you some ideas for your next photography or hiking adventure.

In the 1800s and early 1900s, extreme logging practices drastically altered the landscape of the White Mountains to the point where the forests were described as wastelands. And now in the twenty-first century, the forests are thriving because the logging practices of yesteryear are no longer tolerated.

Windy Weather of the White Mountains

Windy conditions cause snow and clouds to blow across the mountains from the summit of Mount Tecumseh in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire USA during the winter months.

Five images of Windy Weather – As an environmental photographer, I try to document every aspect of nature that is interesting. I also try to think out of the box and create images that will be beneficial to have on file for future use. Weather related images are always in demand and are good to have on file.

I find it a challenge to create images that showcase the power of wind, winter and nature. To create a great image that includes these three elements everything has to line up perfectly, and most times they don’t. Being in the right place at the right time does help, but this means shooting in less than ideal conditions and my camera gear does take a beaten.

Winter, White Mountains – It is that time of year when we can expect snow any day in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Daytime temps have been on the cool side, and rime ice can already be found at the higher elevations. I suspect my hike to Mt Tecumseh in October was my last snow free summit until the spring season.

A fresh coating of snow transforms the White Mountains into a breathtaking landscape. And you do not have to travel far off the beaten path to find beautiful winter scenes. Included in this blog post are a few locations that are easily accessible (for the most part) during the winter. They may give you some ideas when planning your photo adventures this winter.

The Simple Shot – Mount Osceola Trail

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.

Five images of Mount Eisenhower, New Hampshire – Mount Eisenhower, named after President Dwight D. Eisenhower, is located in the Presidential Range of the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire. I have always thought the best photo vantage point of Eisenhower is from Mount Pierce.

Artists Bluff, Franconia Notch State Park – Artists Bluff is a rocky outcrop on the north end of Franconia Notch State Park in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. This outcrop offers a unique view of Cannon Mountain, Franconia Notch Parkway, Eagle Cliff, Echo Lake and of Mount Lafayette.

The hike is only about a 20 minute hike (one way) from Echo Lake, but the views are worth it! Hopefully on the day of your visit clouds will dominate the sky, making for the perfect White Mountains scene.
