Castle In The Clouds–9-29-2018

My coworker, Wendy – an Littleton Native, keeps making the perfect suggestions for my weekend adventures!

This week it was Castle in the Clouds!

Here are my keys!  The light was odd in the gorge where the Fall of Song is.  However it was gorgeous and a quick hike to be honest.

A short hike, and some mushrooms later, I found the Bridal Veil.  Which was fun to photograph as well. 

Did I mention Mushrooms?

After an awesome lunch (soup and a salad) In the sun on the patio, off to the house I went.  Of course, I took pictures of the view – hello!

Pictures do NOT do this place justice.  Oh, my goodness, massive and stuck “in time” so to speak.

I could have spent hours and hours taking photos of this place, I am glad I got there earlier in the day – the light was great, lovely shadows against the walls as well.

Mount Washington, NH–9-8-2018

Driving up Mt Washington is super fun, and a little scary for someone who isn’t into heights and have bouts of vertigo.

Be ready for wind!  And some of the most gorgeous views ever.

The problem with such views is no perspective at times, so things look flat and while gorgeous, lacks texture.  So, that’s why the keys!  and any other objects I can use to give things perspective as well as a break in the view.

The Tram–Cannon Mountain

The Tram.  A little daunting for someone who has problems with elevation, due to my Meniere’s. 

I chewed gum and was fine.

The ride up was pretty easy, I had one young man ask me about my Green Arrow Key Chain, which led to a discussion, later, about if GA could still hit a target in the wind on the top of the mountain.

When the clouds touch the mountains, isn’t that an awe inspiring sight?

It’s a short hike to the “top” of the mountain and to the observation deck.  I did do one thing that day, I forgot my keys!

Damn it.

The most difficult part about taking pictures of mountains and clouds?  Giving it something to relate it to.  Hence trying to include close trees, or the view fingers.

I ended up taking 300 photos, but editing about 80.  Which is a good ratio.
