Kevin, Judy, Emma and Dan

People have asked me, "Who are your favorite photographers?" For the past 5 or 6 years my answer has been Jim Salge (http://http://www.jimsalge.com/) and Patrick Lafreniere (http://www.pbase.com/myworld), well known White Mountain photographers who appear regularly on this and other forums. Imagine the thrill of seeing your two favorite photographers with back to back slideshows on your favorite subject, Nature Photography in the White Mountains.

Well, I got my thrill and more. The good folks at the Mount Washington Observatory hosted an event featuring these photographers at their Weather Discovery Center in North Conway. I was privileged to attend with my wife and two friends from VFTT, Jeremy and Darlene. We also had the pleasure of meeting and dining with several VFTT and Obs Forum Members as well as Jim S. at the Moat Mountain Brewery before the show.

As for the show it couldn't have been better. If you are familiar with their extraordinary photography then I need hardly explain.

Please help with identity!

To pass time before this event we took Judy's brother Dan to the Green Hills Preserve. Nice little hike. Great local views. Chocorua, the Moats. Outstanding views of Washington descending from Peaked Mountain. Lots of wildflowers, bugs not bad!
