    Default September Sunset, September Sunrise...

    I was going to hike into Zealand with my girlfriend this weekend, but a bruised leg kept us on flat and easy. Having never been to the Pondicherry NWR in Jefferson, NH, we figured this as good an op as any. We hiked out at around 4PM, and stayed until sunset.

    The view from this local is STUNNING. Views from the Dartmouth Range to the Killkenny, and what would be a panorama of the Presis if they showed their face. Even without Mount Washington, I still came away with this...



    I stayed with a friend in Gorham, and got up before sunrise to head over to Reflection Pond. This is a neat widened spot on the Androscoggan River that offers great views of the Carters, Madison and Adams. Or, just heavy mist...
    A brief clearing gave me a view up to the Carters, and I think this one came out alright...



    Fall is truly here in the Northern Whites. A few weeks away near the rest of the valley...

    Enjoy,
    JimS

    Thanks,

    In places, it's past halfway to peak, or nearing peak. Most places though there is alot of green...

    Nice photos. Pretty much a given though.

    When is your website going to be up and running?

    What lens did you use for that top photo? Did you graduate to the high end lenses yet?

    Thanks Bill...

    I just got my new computer, and will hopefully get my website up by Thanksgiving. Well, it's a dream atleast. Alot of image editing, selecting, and basic webbing before then...

    As for my glass...
    I own inbetween stuff. I shot this with a sigma 18-200, which is not fast, somewhat sharp, but light for the walk in. I also own a Canon 24, a canon 50 and a sigma 150 macro which are all very sharp. No 'L' glass yet, but I'm saving up for the 17 to 40L and the 70 to 200 F/4 L by canon. When I get those, the Sigma is leaving...

    Nice lens. I just got the Canon 70-300mm IS 4-5.6 lens. Am just starting to work with it. This was one of the pictures taken with it. I was looking one notch higher on the lens scale, but those will have to wait a bit.

    Jim,

    Very nice, as always! Both are nice.

    I like the balance of the comp especially in the Pondicherry image. I've noticed the Reflection Pond area of the river on the map and thought it might have a nice view to the Presidentials. Nice mood in that one.

    happy trails

    I love the first one with the mountain reflection in the water. Should be on a calendar. Ooh, Jim, you should put together a calendar with all your awesome photo's and have it for sale in the gift shop!

    Jim,
    I can heartedly recommend the canon 70-200 f4, well worth the price any relatively reasonable at that. With the longer reach of the 1.6 crop cameras, it really helps with wildlife. I just saw it on Amazon for about $550.
