The lakes of the Pacific Northwest are so different from those of the Sierra, but they have their own charm. I’m definitely not the first person to photograph this lake, but I enjoyed my time there and want to share it 🙂

We forecasted this sunrise the night before and drove 3 hours and got almost no sleep… totally worth it though.

The Oxbow of the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park is, arguably, the most popular spot in the park because of it’s easy access and iconic view of Mount Moran. This was an early fall stormy afternoon, filled with snow, sleet, rain and some extraordinary light that quickly made us forget about any negatives of shooting in bad weather. These light pockets disappeared  as quickly as they arrived. After capturing this I stooped down to get my ultra-wide angle lens out of my pack and when I looked up, this light was gone.
