A different perspective on the sunrise -- widened to include a view of the sky and clouds. The amazing Teton range is in the "background" here.

Hello Mike,

Wonderful landscape, with beautiful colors and excellent POV!


ohhhhhhhhh did I say ohhhhhhhh
This is beautiful Mike!
What a gorgeous landscape you've captured here in the Grand Teton. Are you still down there? I l love the shadows on the mountains and the scattered clouds. The colours are awe inspiring. I like!

Hi Mike,
That sky is unforgettable!
And the lighting at the back is like a fairy tale history...jsut great.
Excellent proportions used on the composition, and I like the inclusion of the pond and the sky's reflection on it.
My compliments and thanks for share it.
Best regards,

Hi Mike!

A superb "Grand Teton". It's a subject that is often seen, but also worth to be seen often, and yours is particularly well done. The overall atmosphere it generates is very pleasant and refreshing, the composition with the flat foreground that leads to the center of interest is fine. Just be aware of the burnt whites in the clouds.

Kind regards

Hi Mike

An excellent landscape shot - the elements combine very well to make a memorable shot. The oranges of the sage brush contrast well with the sky.

I had to visit the Grand Tetons three times before I managed to see them without!


Hello Mike,
The play of light is very eye-catching!
Wonderful colours, already marked by the season and the brownish ground goes so well with the blue sky...
A well composed image, good division of the frame!

Best wishes

Hello Mike, it is another great landscape shot, fantastic point of view, wonderfull colours and sharpness, realy beautifull composition,
well done,

Hi Mike,
Wow man...I reserve "wow" for the real thing too ;}
This one is makes me realize just how much I'm missing out there :(
You've done a fabulous job here. The sky is fantastic, as is the contrast, light, color, and..the DOF goes on forever :)
Very well done!!

Man, another stunner! I really like the fact that you chose to leave so much room above the mountain range. Normally this makes the mountains look small, but in this case it gives the photo tons of depth. I really like the way it feels that the clouds come from behind and gives a kind of covered feel. The play of shadow and light across the landscape is wonderful.

Great image and great vista...
'Amazing Teton' as you mentioned...

Hi Mike,

Stunning, rich colours and striking subtle colours on the horizon. Level of detail is great. Spectacular location and you have done it justice.

Kind regards,


Hi Mike,
Wow, amazing view! This landscape goes on forever! What beautiful mountains..and love those clouds..TFS

Hi Mike,

A good POV of the sunrise on the Gtand Teton, the photo has a very good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.
