Why: This shoot was basically a fun break from a 10-day stretch of assigned project work. The White Mountains are special to me for many reasons, and it is the place where I was first inspired to get serious about photography and to pursue a career as a conservation photographer. Ironically, I rarely am asked to shoot there anymore, so I don’t visit as often as I used to. So since I had a free afternoon and the foliage was great, I strapped on the hiking boots and found my way to Dome Rock. I’ll admit I was also getting a little jealous of the plethora of insanely beautiful fall images coming out of the Whites that I was seeing on Instagram at the time:)

Let me know if you have any questions about this image or post a comment below if you see another photo on my website that you’d like me to write a “How and Why” about.

Cheers!
-Jerry
