This week, I want to take you to another of my favorite locations in the Monadnock region, but this time it is actually a twelve mile stretch of what I think is one of the prettiest roads around our iconic Mount Monadnock. I don't believe there is a stretch of road in this corner of New Hampshire that can match the concentration of classic New England scenes that can be found along the 12 miles of Route 124 from Marlborough to Jaffrey.

The difference this week is that my travelogue about Route 124 is not here, but can be found on the New Hampshire Photography Guild blog. I have recently had the honor of being accepted into the Guild which is a small group of talented photographers who are dedicated to promoting the

special beauty of New England and presenting that beauty photographically in ways only artists who are part of New England can do. The members of the Guild come from all over the region and have a wide variety of photographic interests, but they all share a commitment to communication. Not surprisingly, the strongest feature of Guild's web site is the weekly blog about photography in New England.

My article is titled, unashamedly, Mount Monadnock's Most Photogenic Road, and while you are there check out the long list of fascinating contributions from other Guild members.
The number of images I could use on this post was limited so Guild member Liz Mackney suggested that I should use my personal blog to show a few more angles on this great route. You can also see more images on my Route 124 Flickr Set. I have been exploring Route 124 for years. It is one of my favorite "Go To" places and it never disappoints. So check out the article, but more importantly, check out the road. I can't wait to find out what new perspectives you discover along the way.
