The Basin–Lazy Day–7-28-2019

We had some killer heat the last week in NH and there was no long distance hiking to be had! 

So I hit up the Basin one afternoon, with my camera and a towel to hang out.

You can’t beat the water here in NH, clear and always flowing.  And the mushrooms are in abundance!

Yes, that IS A smurf! 

I picked him up when shopping for Hardy Boy books on the weekend.  I thought, well mushrooms = smurfs, right?

Cherry Mountain–7-24-2019

Oh Cherry Mountain!  Nice hike on a very hot day, shady and comfortable hike.  A few steep spots however.  Worth the trek!

IMG_6942IMG_6930IMG_6933IMG_6936IMG_6938IMG_6939IMG_6940IMG_6941

Of course, I hunted out the mushrooms.  As well as how the great shafts of light were hitting the ground.  Never know what you will find and make for a great picture.

Mr. Frog jumped over my boots so I thought I’d take his picture.  He didn’t sit still for very long, however.

The views!  You cannot beat the views, can you?  ‘nuff said.

Wonder Woman! 

I have several trinkets that I carry with me.  Wonder Woman is one of them.  I thought I’d give a nice perspective shot a try. 

Bald Mountain/Bethlehem–7-18-2019

When I hit up Artist Bluff, I missed the walk up to Bald Mountain.  Since I had an early afternoon, but it was super hot (85+) I thought a short hike was a good idea.

IMG_6841IMG_6842IMG_6852IMG_6853IMG_6847IMG_6848IMG_6849IMG_6851

Great hike, less than a mile, but also you’re scrambling up and down over boulders. 

IMG_6869IMG_6854IMG_6855IMG_6858IMG_6859IMG_6860IMG_6867IMG_6868

I finished my hike with a few more pictures. 

IMG_6871IMG_6872IMG_6875IMG_6877IMG_6870

Then I hooked over to Bethlehem, grabbed some food and walked some more.  Because, hiking isn’t walking is it?

I was still working on the patterns challenge (see previous post) and found a few on this short, but satisfying walk through this cute town. 

Prospect Mountain–7-16-2019

I got rained on.  I drove to the top of the area, intent on taking a few pics and then – downpour!

I never got to hike. 

IMG_6805IMG_6807IMG_6796IMG_6797IMG_6798IMG_6800IMG_6802IMG_6803

The tower was worth the drive to be honest, fun place!  And a few great pictures as well.

IMG_6829IMG_6832IMG_6824IMG_6826

I’ll have to go back and hike the trails – on a day that it isn’t going to rain.

Covered Bridge–7-12-2019

After work, I decided to go out galivanting.  I came across a covered bridge.

IMG_6629IMG_6620IMG_6621IMG_6622IMG_6624IMG_6628IMG_6625IMG_6627

I like the above picture, framing it was fun, since there were cars whizzing by me at times. 

IMG_6642IMG_6630IMG_6633IMG_6634IMG_6636IMG_6639IMG_6640IMG_6641

Some of the reflections in the water were stellar that day!  As well as the clouds that came in.

Capturing flowing water in the full sun, without an ND filter, is a fun task.  I had to do a lot of fiddling with my settings.

Challenge: Patterns

I have a hard time with patterns I am an “odd sock” kind of girl.  You know the things that stand out? 

So this challenge took some work!

IMG_6884

While walking around in Bethlehem, I came across these great windows.  I’ve shot them before, but this time I found the one I liked the best, and found the pattern.

IMG_6888

The shingles of the same house as the windows lent themselves to more of those lovely patterns.

Nuts and bolts.  Patterns.  Rusty ones at that!

This is the curved wood of the covered bridge.  Light, dark, dark, light.

Bricks!  This was on Prospect Mountain, the home that was at the top of the mountain, it had a great older red brick patio.

My jaunt over to Vermont and this is a state building, I just kinna liked it.

Sugarloaf North Trail–07-03-2019

Great hike!  Not super long (3 miles total).

IMG_6502IMG_6496IMG_6497

Can’t say enough about the views.

IMG_6518IMG_6504IMG_6505IMG_6506IMG_6507IMG_6508IMG_6509IMG_6513IMG_6515IMG_6516

And the lens ball!  This thing is a heavy lil bugger too.  And the keys make an appearance!
