Nice Tetons

Nice Tetons, originally uploaded by margotwood.
Last week I had the (extreme!) pleasure of going on an epic family vacation to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

As a lover of nature and regular (when I can) hiker, I couldn't wait to get out there and start getting some shots that I could add to my "nature" portfolio.

There will be more pics to come, but I think this photo pretty much sums up the whole trip. It was beautiful, breathtaking and epic.

This photo is of the Teton mountain chain (apparently, a very young mountain chain). The lake is called Phelps lake and it's a very easy 2 mile hike to get there. My family packed some lunched and made our way to a secluded spot to enjoy this majestic site in peace.

Seeing things like this makes me think that if heaven did exist, it would be pointless because we already have heaven on earth....

Post Process: Played with two different curves settings, decreased the cyan in the sky (it was too overpowering) and very, very slight vignetting.


  1. Looooverly! Great composition, and absolutely wonderful colors/tones.

  2. Ahh, regarding the composition I was thinking that I'm mad I didn't include the entire mountain in the water reflection but unfortunately I was using a 50mm fixes lens so I couldn't zoom out at the time. But it doesn't bother you that the whole mountain isn't included in the reflection? I have another photo in the pile that includes the whole thing, I'll edit that and get your opinion!
