One classic sign of late spring-early summer in the White Mountains of New Hampshire is the blooming lupines that cover the hills at Sugar Hill. I always try and get up there with my wife Amy Jo and son Nathan for Father’s Day. Some years, the sunrise is beautiful, but the lupine aren’t at peak colors. Other years, the opposite is true. Every once in a while comes a special year when sunrise, peak colors and light combine for magic. This is one of them.

Grounded in his early years of hiking, backpacking, and mountain climbing, Howard’s love for nature photography is fueled by the exquisite beauty of the natural world and the wildlife residing within its various ecosystems. “The ideal photograph tells a story that speaks directly to the heart and moves people to self-reflection. It combines one’s vision for the image with the best natural, ideally golden light, and requires both persistence and opportunity.”
