Brief Directions

Oxbow Bend in Grand Teton National Park, WY. Taken in late autumn this photo is actually quite colorful but that color range made for an even better black and white.

Notes

Generally there are 50+ professional photographers and equally as many tourists jockeying in the pre-dawn hours to access this vantage point of Mount Moran and the Snake River in Jackson, WY. On this chilly day October 1, 2013 morning it was eerily just me. The recent government shutdown resulted in the closing of all National Parks but because I was attending the Wilderness Risk Management Conference at the Teton Lodge, I was allowed to stay.

Description

Oxbow Bend in Grand Teton National Park, WY. While shooting on this early morning I stopped a few times to just appreciate the diversity of tonality, color, tranquility and life. You can see the ice frosted lavender in the foreground as the sunrise descends on the distant landscape with a warming light. Taken in late autumn this photo is actually quite colorful but that color range made for an even better black and white. Sometimes, simplicity tells the best story of all.
