Summer Sunset on the Pemigewasset

The location of today’s photo holds some special memories for me. My wife is from New Hampshire, and as a child grew up camping with her family at this location. So after we married I was lucky enough to get to join in on this family past time. The river in the photo is of course beautiful, but it also has a mouthful of a name. The river is called the Pemigewasset (pronounced pem-ee-juh-wah-set), and this section of it is found in the small town of Lincoln in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. If you’re into camping and hiking, or anything nature really, this is a great place to visit. And of course if you’re a photographer it’s pretty great too!

This photo, by the way, is one I pulled up from the archives. I had processed another one from this same location shortly after taking it, but as I’ve grown as a photographer I also grew to not like it as much, for a variety of reasons. So I went ahead and tried this one and I’m really happy with how it turned out, although I will say it took me two tries to get it where I wanted it! Anyway, point is, it’s always good to go back and revisit old photos as you progress as a photographer. You see things differently over time, with new skill sets and fresh eyes, and you might just get a result you absolutely love.
