The Winter of 2016-17

Blacktail Butte Below Winter Weather

Most people aren’t going to have a hard time forgetting this past winter. Jackson Hole Ski Resort set a record for snow depth on the Rendezvous Bowl just below the tram. Kids had a snow day from school for the first time in decades. Avalanches occurred on Highway 89 just north of Jackson, something most people will admit to never seeing before.… Keep reading...

How to Preserve the Drama in Your Photos

Histogram in Dramatic Lighting

Many people approach photography from an understandable, but flawed perspective. They learn that an ideal histogram peaks in the middle and recedes toward the edges.

Bald Eagle and the Sleeping Indian

Bald Eagle Landing in Tree

I was exploring a mostly unexplored part of a river in Grand Teton National Park. Not that it’s completely unexplored, it’s just not on the radar for everyday hikes. The high that day was 5 degrees (F), 35 degrees warmer than the low that morning. So more of a snowshoe hike in this case.… Keep reading...
