Autumn Sunrise from Schwabacher Landing, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Posted By Joseph Rossbach

Richard Bernabe and I just finished up our Tetons workshop this morning. We had a great time shooting landscapes, fall color intimates, Moose, Bison and Antelope. The weather was chilly and many mornings were filled with fog. We had a few sessions with incredible light and a great time was had by all! here’s one from a misty morning shooting autumn Aspens in the park.

The shot below is from iconic Schwabacher Landing on the Snake River. We had our entire group here all wading out in the water on a small sand bar to get a better perspective. One of the keys to shooting in an iconic location in the National Parks is to get to the area extra early and get your spot before a million other photographers show up. This morning was special due to the quality of light and clouds, but I would still have preferred to be in a more “off the beaten path” location. Either way, it was spectacular and everyone came away with some really amazing images. I have several compositions at different times of the morning. Each unique and special in their own way. This however is one of my personal favorites from the shoot. More to come over the next week, so stay tuned!

Tech details: Nikon D700, 14-24mm, 2 exposure blend, F14 at ISO 100

    This is a great image. I was in the Grand Tetons last September and shot at Schwabacher Landing. I got there about an hour before sunrise, saw more stars than any place I’ve ever been and got some beautiful sunrise shots from far end of the landing. It’s a great place to shoot.
