Default White Mountains, NH - Zealand Hut Trail

Had a nice weekend up in the White Mountains of NH. It is getting close to peak foliage season up there. (all taken with the e-pl2 and the 14-54mm MK II)

We did a zip line up on Bretton Woods which gave us a beautiful vista of Mt. Washington with the Mt. Washington hotel below in the valley. The line going up the ridge is the Cog railway which has been there since the mid 1800's and the Mt. Washington hotel has been in operation since 1902.

Later that day we took a hike up the Zealand trail north of Mt. Washington and enjoyed the clear bright dry day with temps in the upper 60s.

there was a lovely stream on the side of the trail which I ventured down to and took this shot

At another spot I played around with the exposure time setting it at 1/2 a second and resting the camera on a steady rock to get the rushing water to appear as a blur

we topped out our hike after close to 2 miles in we came to this mountain wetland area. This is a four shot panorama.

Beautiful shots, I really enjoy it.

This is a great season to shoot streams and water falls with the beautiful Fall colors.

Thank you for posting.

The zipline canopy tour at Bretton Woods requires reservations this time of year, but you can ride the chair lift to the lodge at the top for free where you do get a beautiful vista of the valley and Mt. Washington if it is clear. They also have a restaurant there but not sure how good it is.

Going up route 302 North from there you will see the Zealand Camping on the left, pull in and continue up the road past the camping areas, you will go on pavement for a short ways then dirt, the road will keep going and is a little rough but nothing you'd need all wheel drive for. Keep going up the road to the very end (it is pretty long) and that is where the trailhead is. If you've got the time it is 2.8 miles to the hut with very minor elevation change. We didn't have the time and turned around at the wetlands.

Thanks Marcelo!

Here's one more I had played around with exposure on, in the end I applied a gradient filter via software which allowed me to keep the shadows without blowing out the top of the image. It's still kinda busy to my eye but still kinda cool.
