Lake Solitude, Newbury, NH

Posted on 7/18/2016 by Doug Shoop | 0 comments

It takes a rigorous hike uphill about 1,500 feet to reach this beautiful and serene pond.  It's actually called Lake Solitude.  Pack some snacks, water, and good hiking shoes.  Contrary to what the information guy said at Lake Sunapee resort, it's not an easy hike.  Enjoy.

If you are in NYC and get the chance don't miss the trip to the new One World Trade Center Observatory.  It's worth the cost of admission.  The elevator ride up and down are the coolest elevator ride you'll ever experience.  Face the back of the elevator, because all of the elevator panels are video screens.  The surprise at the end of the video is awesome.  Enjoy.

Coming around a corner and this tree just screamed "take my picture" at us.  Pretty cool how the cows grazing in the field behind could have cared less.  But then, they pretty much don't care about anything.  Enjoy.

Thanks for the patience of my family to get this shot.  I had to sprint 100 yards up and down a steep hill, twice, to grab the right lens and then hope the shot was still there.  I didn't  even notice the kyak guy in the shot below the church.  Thanks buddy.  This was my favorite from the day.  Enjoy.

Thank God the gun range to the left was closed for Columbus Day.  I stayed very low when I took my shots.  Somewhere in NH.  Enjoy.


Fall White House

It's been a while since I've driven my family crazy with jumping out of the car and taking photos of every potential shot I see. I liked how this pond framed the white house at the end. Climbed down a bank, over a fence, saved a Turtle from an eminent highway disaster, and here it is. Yesterday, we had a leaf peeping drive up through southern NH. More to come. Enjoy.
