A Cooler Season

I spent the past few days in North Carolina for my day job in heat and humidity that could only be described as swampy.  Unfortunately, walking out of the airport back in Boston last night wasn’t much better.  And with record heat expected in the Northeast for the rest of the week, I thought I’d dig into the archives for something that reminds me of cooler weather.  This shot was taken on an overcast morning along the Kancamagus Highway just outside Lincoln, NH, which is renowned for its fall foliage and picturesque mountains, rivers, and streams.  Friends had let my wife and I borrow their condo for the weekend, and I took the opportunity to get up early both mornings to explore the area with my camera.  I have always been fond of long-exposure shots of moving water, and capturing this movement is something I try to practice whenever I have the opportunity.   After experimenting with various settings, I ended up with this single exposure of 3 seconds to get the water the way I wanted it.  I remember the water being quite cold that day, but I’m sure it would feel great in this weather.

  1. Wonderful shot, looks like someplace I would love to explore. “without getting lost of course” Nice light and depth. Water looks great. Foreground is well done.

  2. Love how you achieved that dreamy smoothness in the cascading water. I wander up-stream, but the rocks peeking through the shallow blue/green/gold water in the foreground, anchor my eyes within the frame. Beautiful image Steven.
