2010 February Winter Storm

The east coast had another winter storm. In our area we received only 6 inches of snow turning to sleet, other areas either received rain or a foot snow. I managed to capture a shot before the sleet turned the snow into an ugly mess.

Early Sunset on Pemigewasset and Winnipesaukee Rivers, where they meet to form the Merrimack River

I grabbed my featured image at early sunset. My image is interesting. You can see where two rivers meet, the Pemigewasset and Winnipeasauke River creating the Merrimack River in Franklin, NH. Franklin is know as the Three Rivers City.
My image will be added to my brand new artistic photo album Franklin, New Hampshire Photo Tour - bpdphotos' Photos

Sure Sign of Spring. A Flock of Robin's Feeding On Crab Apples

Early afternoon I noticed a flock of birds were feeding in my backyard, they were too far for me to identify. About 3 PM I could hear loud birds outside in the front our home. My robins returned, their second year feeding off the crab apple tree, early spring.

MT. Washington Hotel and Presidential Mountain Range

My weekend photo's shoot included MT. Washington's beautiful hotel and the Presidential Mountain Range in the background. I posted my images on Flickr, naming the mountain in the back ground incorrectly, I thought it was the White Mountain but instead are the MTS. Adams and Jefferson.
A Flickr friend Debbe (I am a big fan of her photography) sent me an email, nicely corrected me, which I really appreciated. Debbe mentioned the range of mountains are called the Presidential Mountain Range. Scan down on the site and you will see an image of the range naming the summits.
Lesson learned: I realized in the future I need to research my information before posting. Thanks again Debbe!!!

Ice Climbers On Route 302, Crawford Notch, NH

My first image almost gave me an heart attack seeing the opening in the ice. Thankfully they did not continue but started their descent.

One of my photography goals for 2010 winter, were taking images of ice climbers. Hearing on a Friday there were climbers at Crawford Notch, hopeful we took off the next day looking for ice climbers.
Thrilled we did locate two brave climbers. It was COLD, windy but I preserved standing outside taking my images. I had a hard time taking the images because of the trees in the way.

The Great Rotary Fishing Derby 2010

One of New Hampshire's winter events I enjoy photographing, attending and sharing the Meredith Rotary Ice Fishing Derby: 2010
Dressing warmly, using plenty of layers is a must when attending this event, the morning temperature was 5 degrees.
You will see cars and trucks, snowmobiles driving on the ice...crazy I know!!! Unique "Bob Houses", my personal favorite is "The Lodge". The Lodge is heated, has a TV, antler chandler, small kitchen set up, almost all the comforts of home.
