    Spent a few days in New England visiting friends and just for a couple of days of rest and relaxation. Here are some shots from the top of Mount Washington, New Hampshire, which is famous for its awful weather. We lucked out! Thought I would share a few pics. Hope you like them. (Shot with A6000 and 16-70z)

    These are a few shots of the Cog Railway that goes to the top of the mountain (everyone always likes train shots :)). We took the auto road up, but you can also take the train.

    And a couple of other shots at the top of the mountain. It was interesting being at the top of the clouds

    This is part of the weather observation station.

    And a cairn. These rocks are placed as a guiding mark for hikers.

    Very nice, thanks.!
    Mt Washington has the highest recorded surface wind speed, 231mph. A few friends of mine just returned from a couple of nights in the Madison Hut near Mt Adams.

    Brings back memories when I took my family there for a weekend trip.
    It was in the Fall and as you headed up the mountain it slowly became Winter.

    All nice shots indeed. But the above seemed special to me somehow. Almost looks like a miniature train setup. Any tilt-shift effects going on there? ;)

    Thanks, Steve. No tilt-shift effects here :). It's just that the size of the foreground rocks and the distance to the train, I think give a bit of a miniaturization effect. I didn't even use the "toy camera" effect :)
