This early morning hiking paid off....I started early this morning at 4am heading out to my favorite spot...with camera gears in my backpak and tripod in my hand....just in time to capture breathtaking scene at GRAND TETONS national park....The Grand Teton Range has more than twelve peaks at elevations greater than 12,000 feet. Far left, the Grand Teton (13,770 feet, 4,198 meters). On its right, Mount Saint John. I have not found the name of the mountain in the middle. Far right, Mount Moran (2,605 feet, 3,842 meters), with Leigh canyon on its left....Though this picture was taken in early July, there is still a lot of snow as most peaks of the Grand Teton Range are above 12,000 feet, 3658 meters. The floor of the valley itself is at an average elevation of 6,800 feet, 2073 meters

Hello Bianca , A Beautifull landscape ,what a beauty colours
and the reflection on the water ,good job Greetings Teunie .
and welcom to tn .

Hi Bianca,
Welcome to TN. Thanks for uploading this photo, because I will be visiting the area this summer. About the photo. The size is kinda small, you upload 800x800. The POV and DOF are great and the reflection is amazing. I do feel that you have done a large amount of PP work. It feels like the mountains are seperated from the tree line. That's probably because of selecting different parts of the photo to adjust.
But, I do like the photo and the scenery.

Hello Bianca, very nice shot. I love the view. The composition is very strong too. Did you use a polariser? The photo looks a little too blue - I've done a workshop for this. I hope you don't mind and I hope you like it.

Hi Bianca,
Great mountain you show us! The composition is very beautiful with lake, trees and mountain in tree planes.

A bit of a late one. So just a quick visit.
Well worth a big smiley.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend Bianca.

Welcome to TN, I look forward to seeing more of your posts.

Wonderful photo, composition and technically wise! Thanks for sharing - Xplorator Radu

This is a photo of a favorite park. It brings back many special memories. I agree with Niek. The photo seems a little over enhanced. The blues are too blue and the greens too green. The grand old peak herself feels a little cramped to me, but the scene and composition are lovely.

Breathtaking landscape! Amazing colors, great composition and excellent POV.
Welcome on TN and Thanks for sharing!

TFS this beautiful scene with us

Wonderful scene, Bianca!!! TFS

Hi Bianca,
First time I saw this I was out of pts. to give, and it is well worth the smiley, so I came back to find it. Beautiful scene with great clarity and depth. Planning a trip ther this fall, so I will be attempting alot of landscapes. I saw that you were a member of Nature Photography Network, I just recently joined there. Look forward to many more shots like this.

Wow! Beautiful blue & green shot of a gorgeous scenic, you captured the tetons very nicely. Welcome to TN Bianca. :)

Hi Bianca,

Beautiful scenery and well done on the composition and details.


Welcome on TN Bianca.

You are absolutely right - these mountains are breathtaking. The colours are really nice and clear - must be the clean air around there with no smoke;-). Excellent sharpness/dof. The composition is good too - though I personally would prefer the horizon just a little more out of centre, like your first post. Good note too - I can easily understand that you enjoy your hiking in such area.

Hi Bianca,

I'm hicker and when i see a landscape like this, the only word i think is: Thank you Bianca to share it. The picture is excellent.
Bruno ( cooper )

Wonderful colors Bianca,
Welcome to the TN!!!
the blue and the green are perfect. The compositon is harmonic and the reflection of the mountain at the water are great.

A lovely image, but so saturated. I do like it though the way the blue is balanced on the sky and in the water.

WOW! Incredible color and layout. I love the reflection! Nice shot!

Hola Bianca, yo vi tu foto en el mes de marzo, en tus inicios en TN y no pude comentarla, ahora te puedo decir que es sumamente hermosa, que el paisaje contiene y refleja unos colores bellisimos y que la imagen es muy rica y profunda en detalles de agua, tierra y cielo. Felicitaciones, un paisaje encantador. Saludos Cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*

But its breathtaking, really!
