Congratulations to Jordan Edgcomb, whose image “Sunset On Schwabacher’s” is the winner of the National Parks, Monuments, Forests And Public Lands Assignment!

“In late May in Grand Teton National Park, the snow still rests on the peaks of the iconic Tetons, outside of Jackson, Wyoming,” said Edgcomb. “Using a B+W 10-stop neutral-density filter, I was able to get an exposure of 171 seconds at f/22, ISO 50, rendering all the movement in the clouds and water of the Beaver Pond at the ever-popular Schwabacher’s Landing. This oft-photographed location commonly has many artists plying their craft at both sunrise and sunset. This evening was no different as I had to get there a few hours before the ‘golden hour’ to get my desired location right on the banks with the awe-inspiring Grand Teton front and center of my image. The clouds luckily provided me with motion and color in the sky. Grand Teton National Park offers visitors with many beautiful and recognizable vistas including the Snake River Overlook, where Ansel Adams took his famous image of the Teton range.”

Equipment & Settings: Canon 5D Mark III, EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM, Gitzo tripod with Manfrotto ballhead, Canon remote
