Mount Chocorua, with an elevation of 3480′, has a characteristic rocky peak that can be seen for miles in this area of the White Mountains. This is a popular destination for hikers, since the bald summit provides ample views of mountains to the north and west. Devoid of the usual radio antennas, the mountain offers a picturesque scene, especially when viewed from Chocorua Lake. I took the photograph for an Exeter Arts Committee theme show titled “Reflections” that opens this Friday Oct 2nd. I used High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing to accentuate the details in the image. The reflection of the peak and sky in the calm waters of the lake add interest to the scene.
Edith Wharton House
Edith Wharton was an American novelist who was the first woman to receive the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature three times. A woman of means, she was often critical of high society in her writings, such as in The Age of Innocence and The House of Mirth.
John Harvard Statue

It also includes the world’s largest academic library.
Mark Twain House
The Mark Twain House highlights the life and career of the famous author who wrote such classics as Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and many other works in the late 1800’s. Twain was the pen name of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, who grew up in Missouri. For a short while, he was a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi – “mark twain” was the leadsman’s announcement that the river depth measured two fathoms (12 feet), enough for safe passage of a steamboat.
