Behind the Photo Image: Avalanche Falls in the Flume


The New Hampshire Franconia Notch State Park located in the picturesque White Mountain National Forest wilderness supplies tons of interesting photography subjects and inspiration. Autumn with it s colorful fall foliage is a great time to capture its entire glory. There are multiple cascades, gorges, covered bridges and waterfalls along the short walk through the wood. It's a true treasure for the outdoor photographer and nature enthusiast. The featured image shows the elegant Avalanche Falls where the Flume Brook tumbles down 40 plus feet and becomes this beautiful waterfall. This New Hampshire waterfall cascades into the Flume Gorge, a natural gorge at the base of Mt. Liberty in Franconia Notch State Park. The walls of Conway granite rise to a height of up to 90 feet and are up to 20 feet apart - very impressive to see and to photograph.

Good light and happy photo making!
