When the Wind Blows …

In an otherwise cloudless sky, Franconia Notch let loose some of its moisture this evening, pouring a line of clouds over the mountains that promptly evaporated in the setting sun.

I shot about 4 minutes of video from Sunset Hill in Sugar Hill and hit fast forward. This is what I saw and heard.

Sorry you can’t experience the black flies, though …



In the Moment


Life has gotten in the way of getting out with my camera lately. Blame it on work and weather and an itty-bitty lack of inspiration.

So I grabbed the camera and my dog and took a spin around the neighborhood. The mountains were pretty, but while meandering along a back road, where the trees’ full canopies bend over the pavement this time of year, I drove by a break in the woods … and nearly kept driving.

I turned around after a mile or two; the glance I gave it caught up because it deserved a capture. I don’t know where the road goes, but in this particular moment it didn’t matter. The light, the hues, the end of a day and conclusion of a week … it was all right there.

For a moment.
