Hometown: Salem

Description: Taken during a ride through the Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire last week. I love the mountains, and this stretch of highway is one of my favorite roads to travel. I am a self-taught photographer and spend most of my free time exploring and photographing nature and landscapes.

Camera info: Nikon D90, exposure 1/4000s, f/6.7, 55 mm

PHOTO STAFF CRITIQUE

The photographer captures a beautiful landscape, using correct exposures and the rule of thirds. The silhouetted mountains provide sweeping lines and shapes and give depth to the image. The sun silhouetting the clouds provides a nice contrast to the dark land beneath.
