10.20.2019 Mount Monadnock from Enfield Lookout

I haven’t been keeping track, but I am sure I have shot at least 18 images of different compositions from here. Of course, light is always a little different and yesterday the foliage lit up well on the closer mountains although Monadnock itself had a haze through all the miles between there and the Lookout. And, it’s the first time with the 100-400. At the full 400mm the distance is compacted making the mountain appear much closer than it actually is…38 miles.

Driving around this morning I found that much of the foliage has dropped but there are pockets here and there and some trees were sheltered by evergreens. So the season carries on.  Often November still has a little color to offer.

  1. I like the depth and 3-D effect, and the two wedge-shaped slopes, one lit and glowing, one already in shadow. Nice!

  2. The dark trees in the lower left appeared to me to be in shadow.

    I do like the compression offered by telephoto lenses. It’s great for scenes like this. And I like that you can see color even on the distant mountain.

    • I’m very happy with the added control the longer focal length affords me. It brings things closer together but, alas, it can’t reduce the haze. The dehaze control in LR can clear that up a bit, but it can’t replace the detail the haze hides so it stands as is. Thanks, Todd.


  4. Very nice. The compression of telephoto very often brings out the pure form in the image, as this one does. Thus pure design comes to the forefront.

    Beautiful shot, Steve. It is not often that the haze doesn’t obscure Mt. M. Friday and Saturday were perfect days!

    November can be so beautiful in its own way, a kind of glorious ruin, but these reds are mad pretty! 😉

    The infolding of the hills and valleys reminds me of interlaced fingers: mother nature as an old woman sitting on the front porch admiring her season, her hands folded in front of her.
