Grand Teton Range

Grand Teton Range

This photograph of the Grand Teton Range in Wyoming was captured on a perfectly still September afternoon. I don't normally shoot in the middle of the day but the clouds and reflection in Jackson Lake we too good to be true. This print was only ever a black and white photograph in my mind and I knew with the addition of a red filter the clouds would stand out dramatically against a dark sky.

I've wanted to photograph the Grand Teton National Park for many years and finally a trip was scheduled in for the Autumn of 2011.

The Teton Range is the youngest mountain range in the Rocky Mountains, and began forming between 6 to 9 million years ago. The Grand Teton Range runs roughly north to south and rises from the floor of Jackson Hole without any foothills along a 40 miles long active fault-line mountain front. The range tilts westward, rising abruptly above Jackson Hole valley which lies to the east but more gradually into Teton Valley to the west.
