White Mountains, Autumn Chiaroscuro
Photo By Neil Keller

  • Title: White Mountains, Autumn Chiaroscuro
  • State/Province/Region: New Hampshire
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Glen House, Mt Washington, White Mountains
  • Nearest Town: Gorham or Jackson
  • Brief Directions: From Boston Metro-West, Nashua & Manchester, NH: Follow I-93 North through Franconia Notch to Exit 35, Rt. 3 North. Follow Rt. 3 through Twin Mountain, NH. Then take Rt. 115 to Rt. 2 in Jefferson, NH, follow Rt. 2 East to Rt. 16 and then follow Rt. 16 eight miles South out of Gorham, NH to the Mt Washington Auto Road.
  • Notes: Although autumn (late September/early October) in the White Mountains is, arguably, unmatched anywhere, brace yourself for the crowds of leaf peepers who drive through these forests this time of year. Book early for your stay, and avoid Route 16 between Conway and Jackson if you hate to be stuck in heavy traffic, especially on weekends. That caveat aside, these mountains are a great destination any time of year. Other attractions: Mt Washington Auto Road and Cog Railway, Conway Scenic Railway, good hiking, hotels, restaurants....
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: An early October storm had just cleared. The fall color in the trees was brilliant in the new sunlight, contrasting nicely with the fast-moving cloud shadows. Viewpoint was from Glen House, adjacent to the entrance to the Mt Washington Auto Road.
  • Gear: Nikon D80, Nikon 12~24mm and 18~200mm zooms, polarizer, Velbon tripod

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
