Stunning sunset

Chris Freeman

Partly cloudy conditions on April 25 set the stage for a beautiful performance at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole. Photographer Chris Freeman moved to New Hampshire in 2014, living just across the street from Alyson’s Orchard for his first two years in the state. The orchard, which sits on a hill above the Connecticut River Valley, provides sweeping views to the west, and he says it’s one of the most spectacular pieces of farmland he’s ever seen. This image is the digital equivalent of a multiple exposure, featuring both sunset and star rise over one of the orchard’s hilltop ponds.
