Set 7 of My Favorite Mountains Photographs
Bob Jensen at Trinity University 

This old postcard shows the White Mountains I see from my desk looking eastward
There are three mountain ranges visible from our yard
The Kinsman Range (starting at 10 miles to the east and southeast of my desk)
The Twin Range (starting at 20 miles to the northeast)
The Presidential Range (Mt. Washington is 28 miles to the northeast)


My daily views of the mountains are always changing
These changes are due to a myriad of causes including seasons, clouds. position of the sun/moon, and vapor trails
Th picture below was taken into a large mirror that reverses the mountain image




This is a shot of the moon over Mt. Garfield


We often see vapor trails from jet fighters out of the training base in Vermont




This is the snow-packed Mt. Washington





Until I lived in these mountains I never appreciated how the sun seemingly "moves" in a wide north-south arc with the changing of seasons

In late November the sun rises slightly southeast from behind the Three Graces otherwise known as the Cannon Balls
Earlier in the autumn season the sun rises much further to the right in the southeast


In early December the sun rises behind the ski tram and restaurant atop Cannon Mountain
Most of the 90+ ski trails are on the other side of the mountain
The mountain protects skiers from our harsh northwest winds


A week or so later in December  the sun's further north behind Mt. Lincoln just south of Mt. Lafayette on the left



In early January it the sunrise was almost straight ahead, slightly to the north of Mt. Lafayette
(the second highest mountain in New Hampshire)


Later in February the sun rises further north between Mt. Garfield and Mt. Lafayette


By early March the sun will first peek above the horizon further north over the pointed peak of Mt. Garfield



Later in March the sun's rising will inch closer toward the Twin Mountains north of Mt. Garfield


Usually around Easter the sun has already moved northeast to somewhere around Mt. Washington
(the highest peak in New Hampshire)
