Blacktail Ponds Overlook

Blacktail Ponds Overlook.
One morning in the Tetons we had decided we weren’t going to shoot a sunrise, but instead were just going to go up to the bears. We said if the sunrise was going to light up, we would stop along the way and shoot. As we drove out of Jackson the sky was a magnificent orange and pink…of course, but when we crested the hill and could see the mountains, the sky was less dramatic over them. We decided we would stop at Blacktail Ponds Overlook to capture the light. I had never done a sunrise from this location prior, but I will do more from this location. The sage bushes in the foreground and willows down around the ponds, combined with the pines, really helped to give the scene depth. It is one of my favorite scenes that I captured from the trip, and I will print it soon hopefully for my walls.

    Another photo from JACKSON area. This fellow is quite talented and keeps returning to certain favorite spots throughout the US get ever improved images. He must have 1000 of a certain barn out there. Not my cup of tea — one or two would suffice.
