The same day that I went to photograph the Lupine Festival, I also drove into Crawford Notch in the White Mountains and hiked in to Arethusa Falls. This 140-foot waterfall is about an hour’s climb on a good trail. To make it challenging, I brought my Canon and tripod so that I could slow the shutter speed a bit. I also used a neutral density filter to further aid in slowing the shutter speed and making the sky so blue. The weight of the camera bag made the hike a bit more challenging but I also needed to work off the pancake breakfast I’d eaten after photographing the Lupine. It was a fair trade-off.
