Could look at this all day

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on Jackson-Moran Road right outside the southeastern corner of Grant Teton National Park commonly known as the Mormon Row Historic District.
Time
This photograph was taken just after sunrise. It was a cold and windy that day and the road leading to barn was closed due to snow drifts. I had to hike in and saw a really curious coyotes making for a memorable morning.
Lighting
Initially I was afraid that the lighting was going to be flat because of some heavy clouds hanging in the east and I was getting too cold to stick around for hours, but the sun came over the top of one cloud providing a nice light and even light across the foreground with some nice highlights on the Tetons.
Equipment
I was using the Nikon D700 with a Nikon 35mm f/2.0D lens, a MeFoto Roadtrip tripod and a shutter release. I opted for the 35mm lens because it has a little more compression than my trusty 24mm and worked perfectly to frame the tree on the left.
Inspiration
I was inspired to take this photograph because I had visited Mormon Row in autumn and loved the rustic barns coupled with the rugged Tetons. I had seen many images of the barn, but very few in the winter. I had wanted to get colorful morning light cast on the Tetons, but I missed the golden hour light by about fifteen minutes. I am still really happy with the image and would love to get back to Tetons in the winter or early spring again some day.
Editing
I used Photoshop and Lightroom to patch up a few foreground areas that lacked snow and added some contrast and graduated neutral density filters for the final image.
In my camera bag
For landscape photography, I normally have a DSLR body (currently the Nikon D800), a 17mm Tamron f/3.5, a 24mm f/2.8 Nikkor, a 35mm f/2.0 Nikkor, a 50mm f/1.4 Nikkor and a 80-200mm f/2.8. I never head out without a light and sturdy tripod, a cable release, a circular polarizing filter and a neutral density filter.
Feedback
The best advice that I would give any photographer is to pre-visualize your images and be willing to work hard for those shots. When I find a landscape that I want to capture, I explore the scene, imagine how the light will fall at sunrise and sunset and then pre-visualize what I'd like my final image look like. Once I have that image in mind, I do whatever I can to get it. This often leads to getting up really early or staying up late, hiking in the dark, enduring cold temperatures, scrambling up rocks, getting scrapes and bruises and having to do it over and over again if the light isn't right. The struggle of getting the images because part of the story of the image and adds to the overall effect of the final image.
