postcard from america

We were in the White Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire during 2006 for an October break and to do some “leaf peeping”. This photo is of Lake Winnipesaukee the largest lake in the area which we drove around on our way back to Boston and then on to Cape Cod for our last few days. The scenery in this part of the US is absolutely beautiful in the autumn and we were enchanted by not only the leaf colours and stunning scenery, but the pretty little towns with their covered bridges, clapboard houses and tall church steeples. 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes

Earlier this week, the Daily Post talked about taking three-picture stories. Read the article for more ideas.

So the challenge this week is to share a story of your own using this format.

This is something I often do, though not necessarily in threes, but I do like to take an overview of a scene or subject, then home in on one or two elements relating to the subject and often include a close-up shot of some detail that catches my eye. Architecture, Landscapes, Travel and Gardens lend themselves to this sort of photography, but it can be used for any subject you like.

First a shot of the Haverhill-Bath historic covered bridge over the Ammonoosuc River in New Hampshire. Look carefully – in the background you can just see the steeple of the clap-board church.

The second image shows the church in context with the neighbouring store

and the final shot is a close-up of the sign above the bridge entrance. Do they tell a story? You tell me.
