Sunset over The Tetons and The Snake River


Sunset over The Tetons and The Snake River

Twilight sky over the Tetons at the Snake River Overlook – Wyoming, USA


I shot this sunset over the Tetons near the same location Ansel Adams shot his famous, “The Tetons – Snake River“. Although countless aspiring photographers have attempted to locate Ansel’s tripod holes near the Snake River Overlook, I couldn’t resist trying my own version when I saw this blazing sky over the Tetons. It was unfortunate that the fine folks at the national park service decided to perform controlled burns during my visit. I wished that they waited another week to start the prescribed fires. The smokes did enhance the sky colors; however, it also obscured the details of the Teton range. I am not too happy with the composition nor the exposure for this shot, but this was the best sky that I saw during my trip.
