Into the Clouds, Shooting Atop Mt Washington

A few months ago, Lori and I took a detour en route to the coast: Mt. Washington. In hopes that the weather would hold out, we played it by chance all the way to the foot of the mountain, and seeing clear blue skies as we approached the entrance, we gave it a whirl.

To say the least, it's a nerve-wracking drive: narrow roads, on coming traffic, sections of dirt road, sheer cliffs, no guardrails... the weather held right until we left, when the clouds began socking in, so our timing was solid. 

Any of these is available for purchase as an art print! Please drop me a note if you're interested. Enjoy!

One of the many benefits of living in the Northeast Kingdom is that view right there, folks. Every morning, I walk out my door to Jay Peak and Lake Memphremagog (fog, weather, and visibility permitting, of course). We had a little snow in some of the higher elevations last weekend, which makes for a lovely contrast between the waning autumn colors and the impending winter blankets. It’s almost a bridge season here, one of my favorite times as well as one of the most bittersweet, signaling the coming of snow (break out the snow shoes and nordic skiis!) and the end of another all-too-quick autumn.

The Presidential Range of the White Mountains, which includes Mount Washington, is one of the best places on the East Coast for a variety of reasons and activities. This shot is an early morning foray into the cool autumn air near the Mount Washington Resort at sunrise. Honestly, I’d forgotten about this and many other images I made on that trip and just rediscovered them. I look forward to returning sometime soon.
