I’ve loved the Tetons for years.
When I used to live closer to them, I would take time to go get photos whenever I could. Now, I can only get photos occasionally.
I captured this photo on the way back from a cold May trip out to Grand Tetons National Park. I captured several photos there, which I like.
We were on our way back home for the day. I honestly thought I was done getting photos for the day. I should have known better as many of my best photos are last-minute captures just like this one.
As we passed by this pasture full of grazing horses, I looked up at the moody scene and thought little of it.
As we kept driving, I thought more and more about it until I had to try for the shot. It was only a matter of seconds. I finally asked to turn around and try for the shot. There was some minor sighing acquiescence from the driver. He’s learned better than to question my instincts when I ask to try for a shot on the way back.
I feel that this photo really captures the spirit of the area.
It’s a different take on the Tetons range. Western Wyoming and Eastern Idaho are full of farms/ranches and gorgeous scenery. There are horses available for rent to see the national park if you want to tour the park that way.
