Old Man of the Mountains Franconia, New Hampshire

This is the famous Old Man of the Mountains (aka Old Stone Face) that looked down on Profile Lake in Franconia Notch, New Hampshire for thousands of years. The great stone face came crashing to the valley floor on May 3, 2003 after a very tough winter. The photo was shot on Kodak Ektachrome film, by the way. You can read more about it the photo (and why it's important to shoot things when you see them!) on my: Travel Photography Blog . Read what Daniel Webster had to say about the Old Man (scroll to bottom of page). Copyright 2008 Jeff Wignall, all rights reserved.
