    Default A GREAT photo weekend...

    I got a late start up to the mountains this weekend, leaving my place in SoNH around 3AM Sunday. I drove straight up to Foss Mountain, a small summit that I visited this summer with some Obs folks.

    I met a photographer there (Debbe Hill) and together we trekked up to the peak by 6AM.

    This hill is known for its blueberries, and the scrubby top was covered in a carpet of red...which showed up well in my first shot of the morning.



    We hung out up there for about an hour, getting a few more shots before heading down to Crystal Lake:





    I don't normally shoot iconic New England images, but Crystal Lake is stunning, and I've always wanted to try my best there. We waited about an hour for the fog to lift a bit, and in the mean time, John Mitchell from the Obs showed up.

    Here's two shots from there:



    and





    John invited me back for some breakfast, afterwhich we drove around Western Maine looking for some spots. We got some photos, none I've processed yet.

    I then took a nap!



    I awoke several hours later with a craving for Kringles Subs. Getting there was a scene like I've never seen in Conway. Wow were there alot of leaf peepers.

    For the evening shot, I climbed up Black Cap, and waited for sunset. Dull grey clouds made for boring shots UNTIL about 10 minutes after the sun dipped behind the Moats, when the sky briefly glowed pink. The foliage below took on the hue, and a neat formation radiated overhead. A bit of the display light up the sky over Washington...which I got here:






    A fine night at MikeD's house, an early bedtime, and a drive over Bear Notch and the Kank produced little in the morning.

    On the way home though, I did get one more shot at Chocorua Lake (or Chaukaroo as I heard it called today!?!?)



    Good folks, good light, good weather...can't ask for much more out of Columbus Day weekend!

    Enjoy!

    My favorite is the church in the fog.

    Another amazing set of shots Jim. Hard to imagine such diverse beauty in a single day! Hard to pick my favorite. I love the first one but the shots of Silver Lake in the fog are awesome. You sure know how to make the most of a day. Thanks for sharing.

    WOW!!! Jim, these are incredible! I would now recognize the two from Foss Mtn. and the one from Black Cap as your work without knowing. The sunset from Black Cap is just stunning. Great work and congradulations!

    Thanks all for the comments. I'm really happy with the light that happened this weekend, and how these turned out.

    forestgnome...I'll happily post specs tomorrow afternoon...
