November was a month of chasing. I raced the dying fall light to look for features and scurried after the presidential candidates that infiltrated New Hampshire, with their plastic smiles and frantic staff. There were moments of quiet, however: the elementary-aged boys silently honoring passing veterans in a parade, the organ-cleaner slowly working to re-assemble a vandalized instrument, and a rowing team gliding on the frigid river, dimming with dusk.

September and October for photographers are akin to tax season for accountants, with playoff games, weddings, and back-to-school stories, therefore, I was unable to post my September favorites a month ago, so I'm posting them now. I especially enjoyed working on a photo essay about the thousands of tourists that flood the Quechee/Woodstock area during foliage season, and also had a great time taking a hike up Mt. Kearsarge with Lebanon High School freshmen.

August was an adventure month. I photographed a rodeo, a glider camp, a puppy-rescue, and a number of things in-between. As the days start getting shorter, the light keeps getting better, and it's been fun to play with even mid-day light these days. As I move on to September, I see even better light, along with more soccer and politicians on the horizon.

Each Summer, there's one month that I seem to photograph better than the others, and though August has barely begun, July has risen to be a strong contender. The heat brought out the water frolickers, and the strange moments, and while the sun beat down overhead, I found shade and pockets of good light. Here's to you, July!

June is always my favorite month, and this one was no exception. My story on Carl Russell, an expert on logging with horses, published at the beginning of the month, and I had plenty of luck finding features as school ended and the sun came out. I love the variety this month brings, the graduations, playoffs, and surprises in-between.
