I had been working to capture this cascade in NH's White Mountains during the various seasons, but winter had proven the most difficult. A sudden snow can obliterate the surrounding boulders or a stretch of cold weather will reduce flow to a trickle or freeze them up before snow falls. This year I finally managed to get to the falls after the 1st snow of the year. The beauty of the 1st snow is that often the underlying colors of the landscape can bleed through for a splash of color amongst the snow. A dusting of snow had decorated the falls the day before, so I returned the next day for this image when the underlying rocks, moss, and boulders were covered with snow. Ice had grown near the cascades overnight, so a considerably more wintery feel than just the day before.
