Frosted Summit, Hancock North Peak.

There’s no better time to be in the mountains than in the winter when everything is blanketed in newly fallen snow.

This view from near the summit of Hancock North Peak, one of New Hampshire’s 4,000 footers, is one of many spectacular views to be had in the White Mountain National Forest.

Along for the hike was my trusty Fujifilm X-T2 and XF10-24 lens. Both performed flawlessly in the single digit temperatures with 30+mph winds. Luckily for me the battery held up well in the cold.

Because I forgot my spares in the car! Oops.

    1. Oh yes, a very big Oops! It’s the first time Ive ever done that too. I’m usually very OCD when it comes to taking extra batteries, especially in the winter. Even more so since switching to Fuji due to the overall reduced battery life of mirrorless cameras in general, life that is shortened even more so once the temps plummet. Surprisingly my Fuji batteries, both OE and aftermarket, come back to life surprisingly well after spending a little time in a nice warm interior chest pocket.

  1. Looks beautiful up there. I’ll never get there, especially in the winter but I do love looking at through your lens. I’m loving my XT-2 also and for Christmas, my husband gave me the 23m f1.4. That is one nice lens. Happy shooting Jeff.

    1. Thanks Cheryl! I’ve heard amazing things about the 23 1.4. I opted for the F2 version for the weather resistance. Because of where I take my camera WR was more important than that wonderful bokeh I’ve read so much about.
