This is a picture of the Imp face located on route 16 in New Hampshires White Mountains. It was a hazy day and I zoomed way out to get a close up so I apologize for the quality of the shot. The only place the face is visible is from Dolly Copp campground. The summit is a little over 3000 feet and offers a beautiful fiew of the Presidential Range from the top. The trail is easy at the bottom but becomes quite steep as you near the back of the head.

The first picture was taken with a Sony H5 with a 700+ mm lens last year. This picture is to give a little perspective of the mountain, taken this year with a Sony A350. I'm still trying to get used to using it.

Nice job. I thing there have been photos of this feature posted here before but I don't remember by whom or for what challenge.

Cal, you may be thinking of one of our more well known granite faces - the Old Man of the Mountains which is our state emblem. The Old Man is no longer visableas it was destroyed by a land slide several years ago. Another granite face in the same area is known as Indian Head. All three are located if a fairly small area. The Imp is the least known because it can only be seen from the campground across the street.

Cool, yesterday. It's so strange how it just kind of sticks up there.

Very nice,

It's amazing how many rock formations has the shape of a face or animal in them.
