    Re: New Hampshire

    I'd suggest heading toward the White mountains too. There's some nice rural areas to explore along the ME/NH border inland. Looks like you'll have lots of little town/state forest areas to explore nearby.

    Maybe I'm spoiled (most likely), but the coast of NH is crowded dirty sprawl that doesn't come close to Maine's beaches. The marshes between the beach and the solid land seem much more interesting to me.

    Read a comment once when in a new location to look at available post cards for the area for ideas of locations/subjects. (Not composition!)
    You simply cannot go wrong. It was when I lived in NH that I found great fascination and a decent composition with the trash cans behind my apartment. Anything can look good in New Hampshire...

    There is a time in the fall when the change toward winter is very pronounced. The light changes; the sky changes. You will know it because you can feel it within you. If you can use that mood swing as a springboard, I think you will do well. Even if you don't get great images right away, observe. Watch the light, the weather, the trees. What you learn now will guide you in the future.

    You lucky person! It would take a lifetime to see all the great scenes in NH. It is not only lovely, but relaxed with great people. I spent years in my youth hiking NH, and some memorable business trips later. And you are by the ocean, and wonderful neighboring states with a lot to offer. Very best to you and yours.

    Would mind sharing with us where you are moving from?

    A good friend of mine who lives in the Concord area has spent much time photographing those white churches with his 8x10 camera... we have wandered the southern part of the state a bit. As he says, "it's a target-rich environment".

    Oh, sorry for leaving that bit out. I've been in Maryland for 27 years, so I'm used to the change of seasons. A longer Winter will be an adjustment, although in my past I have lived in Rochester, NY, Denver, CO and Manhattan, KS, so I'm no stranger to some weather...

    From the NH State Parks website, I've seen a lot of promising landscape locations to visit, although I am also interested in classic New England structures too.

    Thanks...

    Even as a southern lad, I was able to adjust to the NH winter without too much difficulty. But it was the two weeks of summer that threw me off!

    Agreed about the Maine coastal areas - and there's just so much of it! I'll put it on my photo trip itinerary.
