Yesterday I met up with another visiting photographer to take a chance on a sunrise from the Snake River Overlook in Grand Teton National Park. He couldn’t have timed it better! Despite brutal winds, pelting sleet and so much snowdrift I got stuck, twice, just at the overlook, it was all made worth it by this display of alpenglow and probably one of the most dramatic sunrises I’ve seen over the Teton Mountains.
I walked up and plowed my way through the snow just in time to set up for this shot. With one still image down, I immediately began a time-lapse video of the sunrise, which you can watch below. You can see how windy it was from the shaking of the trees in the foreground.
