Sunday’s Hidden Treasure

The frigid water at Livermore Falls flows between the beautifully patterned ice on the banks.

Livermore Falls, Campton, NH.

I’ve always loved the patterns and colors in the ice along the cliff and now I’m finally getting around to doing something with this image.

I’m coming to realize that winter might very well be my favorite time of year to make photographs.

THIS IS THE YEAR!

 I’ve said that before, haven’t I?

Over the last few years, instead of being envious of my friends who ventured into to mountains, returning with spectacular photographs, I was going to hike to the mountain tops to make my own. But there was always something in the way. Lack of proper gear to hike in the frigid, wind-swept mountains, also, while always smoldering, I seemed to lack sufficient “fire” to give me the final push. Always something holding me back.

This is THE year!

With my friend Nate, the summit of Mt. Avalon in New Hampshire was a good place to kick it off.
