Kinsman Falls is a bit of a drop off of the Basin-Cascade Trail in the Franconia area of New Hampshire’s White Mountains, but it is well worth the climb down to the river.
The water drops about 20 feet into a wide pool and the rocks in the river allow for some interesting compositions as the water flows down river.
The Falls are a short hike up trail. You can park at The Basin, on Route 3/I-93 in Franconia Notch.
I spent far less time shooting on this trail than I originally planned. My sister and I planned to hike to the AMC hike at Lonesome Lake and back down the same trail. As we made our way to the lake I noted several spots I wanted to shoot and planned to stop on the way back down when the sun was a little lower (the light a little better).
My plans were thwarted when, about a third of a mile from the lake, my sister slipped on a boulder and slammed her wrist into another boulder, breaking it.
That pretty much killed the shooting day, but did make for a pretty great story. Which I will get into in a later post.
