Sun Setting Above Delta Lake in Grand Teton National Park

Delta Lake and the Grand Teton

This was one of those shots that I wasn’t in much of a hurry to process simply because I didn’t really like the way it looked before bringing it into Photoshop to see what I could do with it. After a couple of quick edits just to see what happened, however, it began taking form and I simply kept going until I had this.… Keep reading...

Cropping Down to the Perfect Panorama

Rainbow Over the Gros Ventre Mountains

Sometimes some scenes are just too large to fit into one frame of the camera.

Ground Squirrel in Grass

One of the more common animals in Grand Teton National Park that often goes overlooked (literally) is the ground squirrel. These critters are found virtually everywhere in the region, constantly scouring the ground for food. While most people are staring at the bison, bears or birds, these creatures are scurrying along the ground underneath going completely unnoticed.… Keep reading...
