This week I choose an image from my latest trip to the White Mountains in New Hampshire, enjoy!
From last weeks waterfall hike in the Glens Natural Area, Ricketts Glen State Park, PA. The water levels were exceptionally low and although I did the entire circuit hike I was only inspired to shoot a total of 3 compositions. Either way I am pretty happy with my keepers!

I found this wonderful meadow of blooming Lupine up Gothic road north of the quirky ski town of Mount Crested Butte. The monsoon was a little weak on this afternoon, but the clouds happened to hang around until sunset providing me with some great shapes and nice color. I used an ultra wide-angle lens getting in close to the most profuse blooms and framed in the spectacular sky waiting until the color in the clouds reached its peak before tripping the shutter.

I got lucky on this shot of Turret Arch framed through North Window in Arches National Park. This iconic location is a tough spot to come away with original compositions, but with a little personal vision and a helping hand from Mother Nature anything is possible. First of all, the classic shot is a horizontal composition with north Window filling the frame and Turret Arch in the center. Add in some bold first morning light and you’ve got yourself the classic icon shot. For me, I pre visualized a vertical comp going way wide and a prayed for some interesting clouds above. To my delight, the cloud shape formed a perfect V pushing the eye back down into the image and refocusing the viewers attention on the main subject, Turret Arch framed by North Window. I also included a bit more of the bottom of the arch as well to create a sweeping C curve formed by North Window.

I just returnd home from a 14 day trip to Acadia National Park on the rugged coast of Maine. I worked the light and the weather every day from before sunrise at 3;30am until well after sunset each night. While many of the days were socked in with rain and fog, those rare moments when the weather and light came together made all my long hours and work worth the while. You can view a selection of my top 20 images from the trip on my website. Just follow the link below to have a look! Thanks in advance, Joe.
