Storms Over Sleeping Indian Panorama

Thunderstorm Over The Sleeping Indian

The other night I had made a quick drive out to Kelly, Wyoming in Grand Teton National Park and in looking at the clouds and light, I began expecting a nice sunset over the Tetons. I drove back out toward Highway 89 and got myself set up, patiently waiting for something to happen. I began looking around and noticed the light in the opposite direction above Sheep Mountain, commonly known as The Sleeping Indian (see it?), gradually glowing brighter. I began getting a couple of shots and in stepping back and looking at the scene again, realized it was one of those scenes that had to be a panorama. So I took five shots, stitched them together in Photoshop, cropped a bit off the top and settled upon this image. Thus far, it’s probably my favorite capture of The Sleeping Indian.

  3. Gorgeous, Mike! Your “Sleeping Indian” should get together with our 11,749 ft “Sleeping Maiden” (a.k.a. Mt. Timpanogos) sometime 😉

    1. Thank you, Julie! I think they’d make a great pair, though she’s got a few hundred feet on this guy.
