Mt. Washington in New Hampshire's White Mountains

Mt. Washington in New Hampshire

Another photo from last weekend’s trip to Mt. Washington.  We planned to climb the mountain via the auto road and earn a “This Car Climbed Mt. Washington” bumper sticker, but–alas–the road was closed two weeks earlier because of snow near the summit.  Still, I got several nice shots just from the scenic outlook.   For non-New Englanders, Mt. Washington is the tallest mountain in the East.  As you can see, it’s the pride of New Hampshire (one of many).   (Nikon D200, f 9.0, iso 320, polarizing filter)

Autumn in Keene, New Hampshire

Autumn in Keene, New Hampshire

I took this photo with my Nikon D70 a couple of years ago when my wife, son, and I went on a foliage trip from northern Massachusetts to New Hampshire, through Vermont, through a small part of NY state and back to Massachusetts along the Mohawk Trail.  We hit some absolutely magnificent foliage throughout our trip.  This is from Keene, New Hampshire, near the Keene Airport.  Please feel free to check out my flickr link (over on the right) for additional foliage shots.  (Nikon D70, f 5.6, 1/60)

Cathedral Ledge in North Conway, New Hampshire

Cathedral Ledge in North Conway, New Hampshire

My son and I took a father-son 3-day weekend in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  On the final day, we learned about this place, Cathedral Ledge.  It was absolutely gorgeous, and only a 200-yard hike after climbing 5-10 minutes with our car.

Mt. Rushmore at Dawn

Dawn at Mt. Rushmore

Dawn at Mt. Rushmore

I got up at about 4:30 to get this shot because I read that the light at dawn would be fantastic.  Well, unfortunately it was very cloudy, and all I got was the blue light of early dawn.  This was shot with my Nikon D200 just before 6:00 a.m., and it was COLD out there!  Makes a nice counterpoint to my evening Mt. Rushmore posted earlier. (f 4.5, shutter speed 1/20)

Evening at Mt. Rushmore

Evening at Mt. Rushmore

This photo was taken at the special evening program which was lovely–very patriotic and educational, as well.  It focused on the accomplishments of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, (Teddy) Roosevelt, and Lincoln.  I used my Canon EOS Rebel XT for this shot, though I also shot it with my Nikon D200 and my Panasonic Lumix TZ5.  (f 4.0, ISO 1600)

mt-rushmore-mountain-goat

I had no idea that Mt. Rushmore was also famous for its mountain goats!  (Panasonic Lumix f 4.6)  I had a great time there, seeing the Presidential monument both in the evening and first thing in the morning.  Will post one of those shots next.

Sorry I haven’t posted since Friday, but was on a father/son mini-vacation up in the White Mountains from Saturday through Monday.  Will try to post 1 or 2 photos from there over the next few days.
