So, it's been quite awhile since we made our trip to Grand Teton National Park, and I'm finally getting around to posting it here.
I LOVE the Tetons! The mountains are just so rugged and beautiful, the air is fresh and the wildlife is usually abundant!
The Tetons are most definitely one of my favorite places! This trip though, was extra special! I met a couple of photography gal pals and went shooting with them. The above picture was taken from Signal Mountain--and I woke up at 4 am to get there for the sunrise. It was magical, to say the least! Not only did the sky perform, I got to hang out with my talented friend, Kristen Ryan. (Go check out her website here...you won't regret it!)
The sunrise was stunning looking at the Tetons, as well as when I turned around and looked behind me. These pictures were all taken within one hour, and you can see how the sky changed!
That afternoon and evening I got to hang out with my friend Michelle Olmstead. She is also very talented, and what's funny is we live only a half an hour away from each other and have never gotten together in Utah to go shoot.
We wanted to shoot sunset at the Snake River Overlook, but alas, there wasn't a cloud in the sky by the mountains, so the sunset was rather sub-par. I settled for some silhouette shots, trying to get those beautiful rays. Remember how I said to always look behind? Well, that evening when I looked behind me, it was gorgeous skies and clouds.
I also went down Mormon Row for a few barn shots in the late afternoon/early evening. It was spectacular!
Our last morning there, I woke up early again (yawn...) to go capture sunrise at Schwabacher's Landing. The iconic spot of the Tetons. It was gorgeous!
Well, it was a lovely trip! I can't wait to go back again and shoot there!
I'm a mom of 4 boys, in love with photography, especially landscapes, macro, and silhouettes.
