Rocky Gorge

One stop on our White Mountain adventure on a chilly Thursday morning was the Rocky Gorge area along the Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire. It was still fairly early and the morning light was still warm not too harsh. The Gorge area is along the Kancamagus Highway and is a great stop for visitors. The area along the Swift River has several waterfalls and a footbridge over the Swift River that overlooks the waterfalls and sights along the river. There are also hiking trails along Falls Pond which is located right near the Gorge area.

This shot was taken up the Swift River opposite the falls, I liked the low cloud cover and beautiful reflecting colors on the river. This was processed in the new Aurora HDR software from Macfun using 3 handheld brackets. I am really digging this software so far and glad they finally have it available for PC. I am really impressed with the software after my initial use and I am sure it will make a nice tool in the future!

Thanks for stopping!

Sunrise on the Kanc

Sunrise on the “Kanc”

Ahh…another great NxNW trip with a bunch of great friends, this year we all met up in the greater Boston area, with a target of shooting the Great White Mountain Range in hopes of great fall color and autumn magic.

This was our first sunrise that our whole group of 8 got to enjoy and it was a great one for sure, but very cold! This shot was from a scenic overview on the “Kanc”. The Kancamagus Highway, often misspelled and mispronounced Kangamangus Highway, Kangumangus Hiway or Kancamangus Highway. The correct way pronounce Kancamagus is “Kank-ah-mah-gus.” The Kancamagus Highway is a 34.5-mile scenic drive along NH’s Rt. 112 in Northern New Hampshire that is well known as one of the best Fall Foliage viewing areas in the country. The Kancamagus Highway is now designated an American Scenic Byway for its rich history, aesthetic beauty and culture. The weather was perfect along the Kanc when we shot this location, the rest of the trip was clear and kinda drab as lighting goes (unless you have a drone) we really got clouded in on our last morning sunrise shoot, but…that happens. 

We were all treated to a great sky and a blanket of fog on the White Mountain Valley Below on this first morning, along with me that morning were some great photogs, Mark Garbowski, Dave Wilson, John Rogers, Steven Perlmutter, Robert Lussier, Scott Starks and Armando Martinez. Armando and John Rogers are licensed drone pilots and they both had wonderful shots of this morning, I encourage you to look them up!

 

Thanks for looking, more coming from the trip! #NxNWWM Live Free or Die!
