Jim Salge is a nature photographer based in Southern New Hampshire, who uses his background in the sciences to inspire his art. A former meteorologist at the Mount Washington Observatory, he is a keen observer of the progression of the seasons in New England. He uses his knowledge of weather, geography and climate to pinpoint the best time to visit a location for the best light, atmosphere, and most importantly, color. Jim has a deep routed appreciation for the nature and the wilderness, which has manifested itself into numerous outdoor pursuits. He spends his free time exploring the New England landscape, often beginning before dawn, and staying out after sunset, immersing himself in the ecology of the natural environment. He has long enjoyed hiking, fly fishing, mountain biking and cross country skiing, but now plans these activities to compliment his photography. Jim now joins Yankee Magazine as the foliage forecaster and blogger, and looks to share his experiences, knowledge, locations and routes this season.
