Title

Summit of Mount Washington in the White Mountains...2012

Description

The inspiration for this image was from a painting featured in the MWM's opening exhibition, Passing Through: The Allure of the White Mountains. The painting is:

Summit of Mount Washington in the White Mountains, Ferdinand Richardt, 1857, Oil on canvas, 26 1/2 x 38 1/4 inches, Private collection

If you visit the museum, you may find the painting in the "Summit of Mount Washington" section in the exhibition. In the view of this photograph, this angle was the only place that the buildings would have lined up when the painting was done. If the photographer could have gotten up higher, the photograph may have resembled the painting better. This photograph was taken from the northwest corner of the summit cone, looking towards the northeast.
