Photograph – Pinkham Notch

Pinkham Notch

Pinkham Notch

This picture shows a view of the Pinkham Notch region from Square Ledge, a rocky outcropping affording nice views a short hike from the Appalachian Mountain Club’s (AMC) visitor center. This is part of the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire administered by the National Forest Service, which provides a brief description of this trail. This was on a warm summer day that featured some interesting cloud formations, which I was able to accentuate using High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing. The bare rock outcropping in the foreground provided a nice frame for the lush green valley below.

Photograph – Portsmouth Buoy

I captured this image of a lobster trap buoy floating in Portsmouth Harbor, and applied an artistic filter to give it a painterly look. The filter rendered the wavelets in light green contour lines that contrast nicely against the deep green water. The water is clear enough to see the rope as it descends toward the trap on the harbor bottom. I was pleased with how the reflection of the buoy adds depth to the image. The navy blue bottom and brilliant orange top with written name (Mullikan) make it easy for the owner to find when checking the traps for lobsters. The unique color combination is required to be on each buoy the fisherman uses and that scheme is also indicated on their fishing license and displayed on their boat.

Photograph – Longfellow Bridge

Longfellow Bridge

Longfellow Bridge

This photograph was taken from the Longfellow Bridge that spans the Charles River connecting Boston and Cambridge in Massachusetts. It is often called the “salt and pepper shaker bridge” due to the shape of the towers that support it. The view here is of the Cambridge side, with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) seen in the background, towards the right side. The views are incredible with sailboats plying the waters of the Charles, people walking along the esplanade, and the skylines of both both Boston and Cambridge providing an interesting backdrop.  I used an artistic filter to over-saturate the image, providing a vintage look to this venerable structure.
