Oxbow Bend Morning, Grand Teton National Park

Posted by
Mike Hall (California, United States) on 13 November 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Another popular shooting location in Grand Teton National Park located in Wyoming. With the Snake River in the foreground leading the eye through the reflection of Mt. Moran, to the mountain itself in the back, it's no wonder why. On this morning, the light was tempered by smoke from nearby wildfires, but as you can see in this frame, the clouds did light up a bit.

Thanks for visiting my photoblog. Though I may not be able to respond to every comment, I do read them all and I appreciate your interest.

Sad to hear it was smoke in the air, not fog, but that one cloud reflects the beautiful morning colors. I am happy to say I have seen this spot. We watched a moose swimming from a western point toward the road and our daughter ran to grab a shot as he climbed the bank and went into the woods (far right). Thanks for the memory, Mike.

I love this, Mike. The hazy air just works so well with the stillness, The cloud lit up so beautifully really helps the eye to move around the frame.....lots of "rest stops" in this beautiful image with all the lines and reflections here...Magnificent piece Mike - I love it ;-)
