Contoocook & North Branch Rivers

Filed under: Landscapes,Monadnock Region — Tags: — Frank @ 11:30 PM

Inspired by a discussion at yesterday’s conservation commission meeting, I took a drive along our local rivers this afternoon .

The Contoocook River runs roughly seventy miles, from Jaffery (south of Antrim) to Pennacook (north of Concord) where it joins the mighty Merrimack. It forms the eastern border of Antrim.

The North Branch (of the Contoocook) River runs about seventeen miles, from Stoddard to its confluence with the Contoocook in Hillsborough. Most of its run is through the north part of Antrim.

I took both my “normal” camera and my camera obscura with me on the drive but I was moved to use only latter.

I am mulling beginning a larger project involving photographing along the entire length of each river. We’ll have to see how this pans out. Watch this space for future developments!

  2. Well, happy shooting on your proposed venture. I’m sure your images will be of benefit to several groups in the area.

    I do like the Iron Bridge shot. And what a shock to my eyes to see color imagery from you. I didn’t think your camera could record in color!
