This is probably what your looking for:

http://www.franconianotch.org/lupine.htm

I was hiking in the White Mtns. this past week and the bugs are just starting, they will get worse before they get better. There are lots of trails up there, some easy, some difficult. Pick one of the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) guides.

Good luck

Thank you both for your help, especially the info about the late bloom. I ended up finding the info for the exact location I was looking for after an extensive Google search for New Hampshire photographers. Alas, after all that work, I couldn't even get there to shoot. Perhaps I can make a special trip next spring.

Anyway, sorry for the late "thank you." I've been traveling a lot this summer and this is just the second time I've been on the forum since you answered me.

Last year I was involved in a discussion on this forum having something to do with photo locations in New England. That thread was lost when Michael's server crashed, and I'm hoping to jog someone's memory here.

Someone had mentioned in that thread about some out-of-the-way fields of flowers that are in full bloom in June in northern New Hampshire (in the Franconia Notch region, if I remember correctly). And I think the flowers in question might have been lupine, but I'm not sure. And I also remember that the poster provided a link to a photo from this spot on his website.

Anyway, I'm doing a shoot in northern New Hampshire this month and would like to check out a few photo spots while I'm there, including the afformentioned fields.

Does anyone know where it is I'm talking about (better yet, is the person who posted that info last year here to read this)?

And, while I'm at it, any other suggestions for interesting areas to photograph in northern N.H. are welcome, too.

Thank you.

I drove up there from Boston yesterday morning. Unfortunately the lupins aren't in full bloom as of yet. A woman working in the information booth said that the amount of cold weather & clouds has pushed everything back by about a week. She said that next weekend things should be looking good.

Overall though, I was a bit dissappointed with fields. I was imagining large fields of flowers with the mountains as a backdrop. Unfortunately, that was rarely the case. I followed the map in the Festival Guide Book and drove to about 90% of the fields. I say 90% because we drove down some dirt roads where there should have been fields but saw only woods.

The field at the end of TimberLane was nice, but not in full bloom. I snapped this picture:



The field is really a dead-end with houses on a couple of the sides.

The field at Sunset Hill was also nice, but again, not in full bloom.



No butterflies, but I did manage to get a macro of a ladybug.



The small black dot inside this dandelion is actually a tick, so be sure to bring plenty of bug/tick repellant and look for ticks when you get home.



Overall, it was a fun ride up & back, but not as glorious as I was hoping. The cloudcover added to that. Unfortunately, I was expecting something like the vast fields that you see full of flowers on the NY Thruway, in between Syracuse & Buffalo. Hundreds of acres of wild flowers... Unfortunately, I'm always driving to Michigan and never have time to stop.
