It's true. Sometimes the magic has to happen in the camera. Or on the camera. Today's image is of a small water fall along the Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire, USA. It was taken in late morning on a bright sunny day. Everything that could go against the image was there, but then again, so were we. It's great to be at the right spot at the right time (the golden hour), but that isn't always possible. We were up shooting at a reasonable hour. Sunrise wasn't until somewhat past 7:00 AM and we were in the field by 7:30 or so. Not ideal light, but "good enough" light to get a few interesting shots. By time we'd arrived at these falls it was almost 11:30. We'd gotten to the Conway, NH start of the Kanc before 9:00 but stopped every fifty feet (or so it seemed) to try to get the flavor or the road. Between Conway and Lincoln, NH the Kanc is only something like thirty four miles. If you live in the area and your daily commute takes you from one end to the other you can probably do the whole thing in one hour. If you're tourists (us) it could take you all day. There's a reason why it's listed as one of America's most scenic drives. So, would do you do when you arrive at one of the prettiest spots on one of the most scenic drives at something past 11:00 AM?
