It's always interesting to me to see a familiar landmark from an unfamiliar perspective. But, as indicated in the title of this posting, perhaps this is something that only a "photo-fanatic" might understand.:)

Regardless, presented below is a snapshot that was taken by bushwhacking several hundred feet above Lafayette Brook to the top of an old landslide. This photo shows a portion of Cannon Mountain as seen through a gap called Eagle Pass.

For anyone unfamiliar with Eagle Pass, it is located in the Franconia Notch on the east side of I-93 directly opposite Cannon Mountain. The Greenleaf Trail passes through this narrow notch-like opening en route to Mt. Lafayette.

Great photograph! I've always thought Eagle Cliff was a fascinating landmark and would like to hike up there. I'll have to do that lower portion of Greenleaf Trail.
Very interesting perspective of Cannon...I like it!
