Shot in Sugar Hill, NH. In the distance is Cannon Mtn and Franconia Notch. A photo of the Scottish Highlanders was taken in the same field down the road ....I include them here to add to the scene.

Hi Dan! Yes, I was very fortunate the day we were there to have had excellent light. This was actually shot around 11 a.m. I would simply wait for a huge cloud to cover the sun so I wouldn't have huge dark shadows and then I'd shoot.
