Oxbow Sunrise

Equipment Info
27mm / f/16 / 1/5 sec. / ISO 50

My wife and I take about four to five road trips a year around the holidays. For Memorial Day we wanted somewhere with cooler weather and skies good for night photography. The Tetons has always been a personal favorite of ours due to the wide variety of shooting you can do in a small area compared to something like Yellowstone. She wanted to do a sunrise shoot at this location the day before, but I did not. We ended up shooting somewhere else, and saving Oxbow Bend for the last day. As the husband, luck was on my side because we had clouds the day we went to Oxbow Bend. On top of everything else, there was a nice cool light from the sunrise. The cherry on top was the sun breaking through holes to light up parts of Mount Moran in the background. The water was nice and calm providing the nice reflection, and the foliage was lush and green.

My photos are always taken with the mindset of sharing a piece of me with the audience. I love to share the tranquility of places we see with the people that follow my work. Not all get to travel like we do, and there is nothing more gratifying than receiving feedback about how a photo effects them.

I currently use a Nikon D610 and this photo was taken with the Tamron 15-30 wide angle lens. The settings were ISO50, 27mm, f16 for 1/5th of a second. All processing was done primarily in Photoshop, and a little bit of Lightroom.
