Franconia Ridge View Photo Critique

A special thank you to Jerry Monkman for featuring my photo Franconia Ridge View in his new monthly photo critique. Take a look at the critique posted to his blog today. Jerry's kind words and constructive thoughts are most appreciated.

If you aren't familiar with the Monkman's work, you really should be. Based in Portsmouth, Jerry and Marcy Monkman are two of New England's best photographers capturing images of nature and adventure with a special focus on promoting conservation. They have penned seven great books and I'm excited to be getting a free a copy of "The Photographer's Guide to Acadia National Park" for having my photo featured.

Close to home here in Freedom, NH, Jerry and Marcy's images were used to assist in promoting the conservation of the Town's Trout Pond Property. If you are ever in Jackson or Gorham, you can admire their work in person at The White Mountain Cafe.

Sugar Hill Lupines

Lupines grow wild along many New Hampshire road sides and Sugar Hill is ground zero for the spring explosion of these spiky blue, purple, pink and white flowers. The area hosts a festival each year featuring the peak bloom of these beautiful wildflowers in fields framed by New England architecture and the Franconia Ridge.

Weeks ago my friend Jeff Sinon and I had planned a photography outing for this past Saturday. As is typical we were still finalizing the plan as we got in the car. Sugar Hill kept coming back into the conversation and by mid afternoon we were waist deep in Lupine fields.
