Snake River Overlook

Here's another quick shot from our time out in Grand Teton National Park.  This is from the Snake River Overlook.  Yes, the same place Ansel Adams took his famous image.  You, of course, aren't able to capture the exact image as Ansel did due to 70 years of tree and vegetation growth.  

We visited this place for sunset.  We were hoping when the sun dropped behind the mountains the reflections would create the god fingers from the bottom of the mountain up.  This didn't pan out for us...there must've been some clouds on the back side of the mountains blocking the reflection.  I did manage to shoot this image with the sun burst before the sun dipped behind the mountains, though.  

This was taken with the Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro Lens.  It really is an incredible travel lens designed for crop sensor cameras.  I found myself using this lens more than I had ever anticipated on this trip!

This was shot at 18mm, F/16, ISO 100 and 1/40th second.
