Hi fellow Hiveians,

Today I wanted to do some more editing of some older photos, these ones we took last fall

Monochrome Monday Autumn Mountains

The mountains of New Hampshire are quite beautiful, even if they are some of the oldest around. That means the mountains aren't as giant and craggy as they are over on the Rockies or the mountains of the West Coast but I think they are still beautiful nonetheless.

This past fall we took a trip and did some pretty awesome stuff with trains and all that but what we got to see were some picturesque landscapes! The mountains here are filled with all kinds of trees, pine trees, maple, oak and everything in between. This makes for quite the interesting backdrop of a lake.

When the lens we had didn't let us zoom out as far as we wanted, we figured we would get a little creative and try to capture some interesting landscape photos like this so that we could appreciate the mountains but not end up looking at a strangely framed photo. It was a little tricky getting the landscapes in as much of focus as we wanted to, which made it actually a little fun to see what we could manage.

Of course Mount Washington here was the star of the show. This was at the bottom of the cog railway, with a train chugging along the tracks down the mountain. Flipping the picture from color to greyscale adds an older element to it, I think. We certainly saw lots of old photographs when we were there at the railway looking at the history! If I could fade this picture a little more, it might pass off as something from history books :D

To bad the lens didn’t zoom out much. But you sure captured some great photographs @cmplxty 😎
The last one has to be favourite of course. Beautiful mount Washington.

Funny part about the Mount Washington picture is that’s only the base! You can’t appreciate the full depth of it there but it was a beautiful place for sure! We are going to get a zoom lens soon, we take enough pictures to want it!

Really… that’s cool that it’s even more beautiful and you only showed us the base.
Yes, it does make sense if you take enough photographs to get a zoom lens. So you can capture it all.
And to show us of course 😉 hahaha lol

Very nice! I like the look of these quite a bit, especially with the reflections.

I often vacation down in the Smokey mountains in North Carolina and they are absolutely beautiful, too. I grew up in Calgary, right in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and can agree that the Rockies are far more intimidating and slap-in-the-face-here-they-are (and dayum do I miss them), but the east coast mountains are really quite striking, too.
