Heart of the Tetons

By mlseawell    
Our morning in the Tetons did not start off well. We awoke at 5 a.m to make the nearly hours drive to Oxbow Bend in the park and the rain was coming down hard. We had one shot at this as we had to leave by noon back to Utah so this was a disappointing start. But we went anyway, arriving to a soggy, dark landscape and temps in the upper 30's. I set up my tripod and decided not to set up my camera...why bother? My wife and I couldn't believe the group of photographers out in the cold and rain pointing at God knows what.

We moved on. So much for the image I had in my mind but I've learned to be flexible and perhaps things may change. And change they did, slowly at first, but gradually light started coming through, lighting up the stunning autumn foliage as the land came alive. But the final piece of this play, the denouement, was the mountains themselves gradually being revealed in all their majestic tones.....heart of the Tetons.

A fabulous mono, Mark.
The way the mountain just peeps through the cloud at what to it, looks like a miniature landscape, is sunning!

Great mono of an awesome area. Travelled through there about a year ago but our day's were mostly sunny and a scattering of clouds - see my shot of the Chapel of the Transfiguration - still wondrous light at the high altitudes
