The Rock house is an approximately 25'x30' tunnel carved out of the Black hand sandstone by water. The cave was used for shelter in pre colonial times and even has a some troughs carved in the floor to collect water as it drips from the rock.
On my last morning in the Tetons I was waiting on some Moose to make their way down to the Snake River. While I was waiting the sun began to rise behind them and slowly fill the valley with light. I made the cottonwood trees really pop and illuminated the ridges of the ledges in the valley. All while this Moose Cow grazed in the sage brush with a bull somewhere just out of sight.
On my way back to camp after the sun had set but before the night had taken over. I still had enough light to capture this shot of some of the rock formations I passed by on the way to camp. It was pretty windy so doing a long exposure proved to be tricky so as not to have too much motion in the grass.
The Luther Taylor Cabin was built in 1923, and used for the movie Shane in 1953. It has pretty much just sat as is since then to slowly waste away. This is a view of the Tetons from the west facing windows possibly a bedroom window.
In an effort to capture this spot from the different seasons I returned and got a shot of Cedar Falls in the summer. When I was here in the spring the water was almost two feet deeper in the foreground, and even with all the rain we have had lately it's still pretty low.
On my first evening in the Grand Tetons recently I made my way to Oxbow bend to try and catch the sunset. Just as the sun was beginning to set behind the mountains it illuminated the tops of the aspen tress on the right, and gave off some spectacular color.
My first trip to the Lamar valley and my first time at slough creek looking for wolves. I came across a group of Pronghorn that were very widespread over the area apparently not worried by the wolves nearby at all.
There is something quite amazing about this spot and I found myself drawn to it over and over again on my recent trip to Yellowstone. The landscape is a result of glacial melt and volcanic activity which quickly eroded away the fractured rocks.
A few days ago I was working in an area near Rocky fork creek in Gahanna Ohio. I had a little extra time at the end of the evening and decided to do some pics. I took a few shots from the front of the falls but as I was walking back to my car I noticed this angle. I am glad that I stopped and tried a shot from a different angle.
