Description

NH suffered in drought through much of the summer and early fall, creating some of the lowest water levels in many of the larger rivers and tributaries in the White Mountains. This weather brought an autumn, but no less spectacular in most areas. Low water allowed accessibility to sections of rivers I could never get to at other times of year. Cascades and reflecting pools appeared where normally covered in 3 feet of water. But in a day, everything changed, as downpours and torrential rains created flood conditions similar to spring snow melt and run off. While the tree lined river in this view was spectacular, the side lighting and beautiful cloud formation really topped off the scene. I blended a darker (faster) sky exposure with a longer exposure to smooth the cascade a bit to emphasize water movement.
