Rainbow over the State House

I geeked out over a rainbow. This is the best I could do with its ephemeral lifespan. I wish I were higher and wider, but either way, I am a geek and I know it.

This is looking the other way.

No more trees

Tornadoes are rare in New Hampshire, but one came through here last year. We could have done a better job connecting with some of the people effected by it, but the thing that struck me was one hillside in Deerfield, near the border with Epsom, that had been mowed down by the twister. I had fun making pictures of some of the few trees left standing over there.

Julius Shulman

died today. He was 98. If there is one image of architecture that sparked my love of photography, its this one from 1947.

I broke my rule about drawing inside the lines with this one. A story about the Suncook river, which broke its banks in 2006 and keeps forming a new and different channel at a rapid pace. I thought a photo montage would work here, but I need to figure out a link so the bigger picture can be seen online. We ran it across the Sunday front for a different look than usual.

This is take 2, trying this different thanks to Evan "Wildman" Wilder.

a day in the clouds

There was a break in the weather on Sunday, finally. After three weeks of rain it was nice. But there was still plenty of weather on the summit of Mt. Washington. I hiked up the Ammonoosuc Ravine trail with plenty of other folks, a big change from the TriPyramids or most peaks in the Whites, where you are on your own. Then there was the mob at the summit. Kids in tee-shirts and flip-flops giggling out of their cars to dash up the final 25 yards from the parking lot before heading inside for a slice of pizza. Wow.
