Teton Fall Sunrise
Although Grand Teton National Park was closed this fall when I visited Jackson, I was still able to take a few interesting panoramas of the area from the side of the road. It seems to me that this valley is one of the most photographed mountain ranges in the American West (e.g. Ansel Adams’ famous Teton prints), so it is difficult to capture a unique view of the Grand Teton. Fortunately, the morning I visited the area, a fall storm had recently hit the area, and clouds hung low over the Grand Teton. The first light shined through gaps in the clouds across the mountain and valley; the lighting and clouds allowed me to focus more on the atmosphere instead of the mountains. This panorama is over 6 feet long when printed full length. I will post a shorter, closer sunrise panorama of the peaks when I have a chance to work on it more.
