Two more favorite autumn views at Franconia Notch.
Well, I guess I lied a bit. We’re still in Franconia Notch State Park. I couldn’t leave without showing you two more dramatic views while on the trails. While I was on my way to the Pine Tree Sentinel Covered Bridge we were following app directions.
We came to a wide portion of the trail and a window. What I mean by a window is a part of the forest had been cut down or topped so that we had an unobstructed view of Mount Lafayette with all the colors running across the valley between here and there.
Comparison between a straight raw shot, a HDR composite from 3 shot exp bracket, and lastly a shot from my cellphone.
Once we left the “window” we walked over to the Pine Sentinel Covered Bridge. It’s really more of a walking bridge and the view I found and shot around 10 years ago was similar to this one.
This is not the only or even best view! When I was here by myself the first time in 2003 I shot it much as you see it above. But due to the fact I was with a young photographer (Benjamin Williamson) he knew where the better view was.
So what do you think? I think the lower path and the climb down to the lower platform is well worth the steps down and back up.
This ends my morning’s exploration of the two “covered Bridges in Franconia Notch and I didn’t even go to the Flume Gorge ravine and photograph that!
Well that is why I’ll be long dead before I ever finish exploring all the New England has to offer! There is simply too much to see and do.
So between the last article and this one we’ve finished Franconia Notch and we’re moving on to… How about the only covered bridge along the Kancamagus Highway?
