Using the Photographer’s Ephemeris app, 2014 Vista Contest Contender Larry E. Klink carefully set-up a composition he had long pre-visualized

This is an image that I have wanted for a long time.

Contender Susan Taylor

Upon hearing flowers were already in bloom, 2014 Vista Contest Contender Susan Taylor rushed to Grand Teton National Park to capture this single image shot

Contender Marty Barger

To get the photo he pre-visualized, 2014 Vista Contest Contender Marty Barger went all-in and tested his limits in the waves of Kona, Hawaii

I used a Formatt-Hitech Reverse Graduated ND filter to stop down the sun so it didn't get overexposed.

Contender Tom Elenbaas

2014 Vista Contest Contender Tom Elenbaas captured this image on his first trip back to Banff National Park after 50 years

I shot this at 17mm to emphasize the limestone cliffs and narrow gorge cut by the Mistaya River juxtaposed against the expanse of the surrounding vista.

Contender Franz Zihlmann

2014 Vista Contender Franz Zihlmann adapted quickly to the changing weather conditions to capture this image of Grand Teton National Park.

I believe the panoramic view presented from the Jackson Lake Lodge area with the Willow Flats, Jackson Lake and the Grand Tetons in the background is one of the grandest in the Park.
