The Moulton Barn is part of the Mormon Row Historic District in Grand Teton National Park. It is supposed to be the most photographed barn in the country, and if the number of photos I took is any indication, then the claim is probably true. It is certainly quite photogenic. I could not resist trying my hand at astro-photography when I was there since I had a clear and almost moonless night. The pink glow on the horizon in the photo are the lights from the town of Jackson which is about 6 miles away. Even though my eyes did not necessarily see the light pollution, the camera sensor picked it up quite easily.

Thanks for visiting.

PhotoPOSTcard: Morning at Schwabacher Landing

Schwabacher Landing in Teton National Park is a great place to go for morning photos or a short hike. It is supposed to be a good place to see wildlife, though all I saw was this trout swimming in the crystal clear water. Still, the scenery was quite breathtaking, even without a moose in the photo.

Thanks for visiting.

PhotoPOSTcard: Sunrise at Oxbow Bend

The mountains at Grand Teton National Park are big and bold and in your face.  They rise straight up from the valley floor with no rolling hills to soften their approach. One of the most popular places to see the sunrise in the park as it brightens up this jagged skyline is from Oxbow Bend on the Snake River.

Thanks for visiting.
