As sunrise grew nearer the rainclouds began to disperse and the first light of dawn appeared. The Tetons rose above a veil of clouds as frost lined the river shore. Intense color reflected from the peaks and water below as the world of nature began to awake.

This image was taken at Schwabacher's Landing in Grand Teton National Park. The weather in May is always interesting with rain, snow and beautiful sunshine occuring many times in one day. When first arriving here the mountains were completely clouded over and I feared being rained out again; but nature prevailed and I was rewarded with an amazing sunrise.

Behind The Lens

Location
I captured this scene on an early May 2012 visit to the Tetons with friends. We had visited this location a couple years earlier in the summer and were excited to catch the mountains with so much snow.
Time
The image was taken shortly after the sun rose and lit the peaks with a beautiful warm glow.
Lighting
We were lucky the fog started to dissipate as the sun rose, minutes earlier the whole range was obscured in clouds.
Equipment
Taken before my mirrorless days, I captured this on a Sony a900 with Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 lens.
Inspiration
This is just one of those incredibly iconic locations that never gets old. I shot it before the days of Instagram fame but honestly it was already quite famous in the photography community.
Editing
This is a single image, no blending, with standard RAW editing in Lightroom.
In my camera bag
What I have with me really depends on how long I'm gone and where I'm going, but I'll always have a smartphone camera with me and usually my Sony a7R II.
Feedback
Patience! That might mean returning the same location numerous times or waiting for a long time in bad weather.
