When my friend Joe asked if I was interested in shooting the sunset on top of Whiteface Mountain, then climbing down after dark I jumped at the idea. I recently fell in love with the mountains of New York, and chasing everything new so this was right up my alley. We arrived late, parking at the base of the memorial highway and started our way up the closed road stopping to chat with people as they passed on their way down. We knew we wouldn’t make the top by sunset, which was socked in with clouds and wouldn’t offer anything photographically. We decided to take advantage of whatever the weather and mountain offered.
Here’s a handful of images from our hike up Whiteface.
