Photo Of The Day By Harry Lichtman

Photo By Harry Lichtman

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Dressed in Winter” by Harry Lichtman. Location: Pemigewasset Wilderness, New Hampshire.

“Expansive mountain views in New Hampshire don’t get much better, especially with a fresh coat of ice and snow to highlight the detail of trees, ravines and alpine scrub,” says Lichtman. “This view from Garfield Ridge encompasses Mount Washington (New England’s highest peak) on the far left and Mounts Bond, Bondcliff, Carrigain and Hancock in the Pemigewasset Wilderness as one pans right. Snow simplifies the chaos that’s often encountered when photographing such wide-angle views and allowed me to find compelling foreground elements in addition to the big peaks in the distance. Lower elevation snow rarely lasts very long as the deciduous trees are unable to hold snow effectively with the wind. The steel blue clouds provided just the right contrast to the mountains.”
