Park Hill Meetinghouse

Filed under: Landscapes,Winter — Tags: — Frank @ 11:07 AM

Back in September, I “discovered” the Park Hill Meetinghouse in Westmoreland, NH. The photos, I made on that day were okay, but the sky was a “nice” even overcast gray. In that post, I said that I would be heading back in November looking for a better sky.

Well, I have been trying for at least two months to get the right combination of sky and light, so that I could make “the photo” of this wonderful meeting house. The weather has not cooperated, we have had many overcast days and some completely clear blue sky days and rarely anything in between.

Yesterday looked promising and I made the thirty five mile to Westmoreland, arriving just before two in the afternoon. The skies behind the meetinghouse were pretty good, but there was a mostly solid block of clouds to the west and thus the light was quite flat. I made some photographs anyway and waited, for roughly two hours, hoping that the light would get better; it never did.

Finally, driven by the cold (it was in the mid thirties), wind and fading light of the shortest day of the year, I pack up and headed home. I’ll be headed back again at some point!

  1. I like these and think the skies were cooperating with you. You managed to walk around to get a different angle which helped to feature better cloud formations as in #2.

    Need to get inspired like you and just get out and shoot!
