Grand Teton Alpenglow
Even though the air was a chilly 19F, I was excited to get up before dawn to photograph the Grand Teton- I hoped the winter clouds would be hanging low over the peaks and the cold air would help make a great sunrise. Before the morning sun hit the valley floor, the pre-dawn glow reflected off the snow-capped Tetons. I took seven panoramas, and this is my favorite. Although last week’s post had great lighting and shadows, there is no strong foreground element; I zoomed in for this compositions in order to get the tree in the foreground and the peaks and clouds in the background.
