2018 A Day Trip to Franconia Notch (Nov 23)

Still catching up on writing blogs about the weekend photography adventures I did late last year. This blog is about my second trip to Franconia Notch in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Hope you like the photos.

Left Boston around 7.00 am for the three hour drive along I93N to a mountain pass on the west side of the White Mountains called Franconia Notch. After parking the car in the Lafayette Place parking area, scouted the area for photography opportunities. I remember how it was a very cold day, with a lot of knee-deep snow to walk through. Luckily I was wearing hiking boots with gaiters.

For the first series of photographs decided to start with the left side of Franconia Notch, then work my way to the right side., as shown in the photos above. The scale of mountains always amazes me, with the trees looking so small in comparison to the rocky sides of the mountain ranges.

After getting the wider shots of the mountains, looked for features I could focus on. The feature above caught my eye, since the trees not covered in snow formed a dark brown “wave-like” shape on the mountain side.

For different compositions turned to my right and saw this beautiful view of a ridge line to the summit of Mount Lincoln.

Turned back to my left, and saw some beautiful white clouds moving over Franconia Notch.

Thanks for letting me share my weekend adventure and spending your time reading this blog.
