In Between by GreggB

Here is another shot of Tetons. This place isn’t far from the place I shot my last image at. I liked the trees (in the foreground) sort of surrounding the mountains and pointing towards it. This was shot way before the sunrise, so mountains haven’t been yet illuminated by the sun. Still, I think they look beautiful and very photogenic the way they are.

Sunrising Moon by GreggB

Here is one I was a bit lucky to capture, I have to admit.
I was waiting for a sunrise and the “good light”, and noticed this huge Moon setting behind the mountain. I zoomed in and shot the scene at 500mm (hence the giant size of the Moon’s surface). At first I really didn’t pay attention to the Moon because it was too high and too small, and I was after the entire mountain range, not just a fragment of it. But, with the Moon low and giant in size, and with some orang-y color in the mountain peaks the scene became more appealing to me. Now I think it’s a great shot ๐Ÿ™‚

Grand But Cold Morning by GreggB

Grand But Cold Morning.
Once in a while I get lucky, as we all do, and I manage to capture some amazing light. That’s what photography is all about after all, capturing the light. Right?
The light you see on the image below lasted for just a few minutes but thatโ€™s all I needed, though I waited for it at least a half an hour. With temperature outside hovering around -30F (or -34.4C) I seriously had enough ๐Ÿ™‚ Being from Souther CA, I wasn’t really prepared/ready for that much of a temperature drop. Itโ€™s just 2 hours flight time!
But, I did capture this place just the way I imagined/wanted. I explored this location a couple of times before and found my composition first (two days prior to the day I took this shot on. This was my first trip to Grand Teton NP so I had no idea this location even existed) and I came one morning, set my tripod up, and waited for the results you now see. I donโ€™t know about you guys but I personally am very happy from what I got ๐Ÿ™‚
This shot will be printed, large!
Enjoy

Focused by GreggB

This magnificent fox fellow was following me around for a few minutes inside the Grand Teton Park. I guess he wanted me to give him some food. He was actually hunting ducks in a near by pond, but they were faster, this time.
He was around 5 feed away from me when I took this shot. Isn’t he (or maybe she, I don’t know) the cutest thing? Just look at these cat like eyes. Mesmerizing, aren’t they?

A Moose-d by GreggB

Here is one with the moose. I took this shot in the Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming a couple of days ago. To me this is a spectacular creature. Look at those antlers. Some can weight as much as 40 Kilos or even more. That’s around 80 ponds. Try carry that much weight on your head ๐Ÿ™‚ From what I understand moose is an animal with a bad temper so I was shooting from a distance with my Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 lens and 1.4TC attached to get reach of 700mm.
