I posted a few picture before of Oxbow Bend, but this one is best with it's reflection. It is one of the very popular view points in the park. It is hard to avoid many other tourists. I visited 3 times in two days. It is great to visit at different time of the days for the different mood and lighting.
I like the early morning to mid-morning, it is the best time with the sun shining at the mountain and some large group of tourists have not arrived yet, it is more quiet and you can actually feel the quiet atmosphere without too many people around. Most the fall colors in other parts of the park were already over the peak and the tree already bare. Luckily here the leave are still abundance in deep golden tone, and with the sun shining at them, the color was just glorious. Without any wind the reflection is like a mirror. I think this is one of best reflection of the many that I shot. This is a park I will return again as many time as I possibly can.
Hello Way, Awesome view. You were lucky with the calm water allowing for the perfect reflections. Alo attractive is the view of the autumn colours of the forest. Spectacular picture, the view of the Moon is the cherry on the cake. I was also in Grand Teton, I even made some hiking.
Kind regards Malgo
PS. What happened to the videos on Youtube? I liked to watch the movies with Tyler, but now they all disappeared.
Thank you for the fav. and very nice to see you here. Hope all is well and looks like you are still traveling to all the exciting places. I'm jealous. We have to wait till Tyler is older...
and the videos on Youtube are still there. If you go to my account, it only show my profile, you have to click on "Video"
Well composed scene, knew it was yours without looking at the name, your familiar strong colours, a very very slight breeze in the water not to have the utter complete stillness in the landscape.. Moon a beautiful addition in the details.
Beautiful landscape - no wonder people stand in line to take a visual breath. Perfect timing with the full moon and the yellow leaves, fall blooming reaching the peak. Okay you can plan a full moon but not the leaves peaking and the weather cooperating. Plus the leaves not always reach this bright yellow etc. etc. You're such a happy traveler with great weather in your rucksack etc. - unless you visit Zurich (haha).
Fantastic shot of the Oxbow spot. Not only the perfect mirror in the water which doubles the visual pleasure but also the presence of the almost full moon and the golden colors of the trees claiming clearly the autumnal season. Just a wonderful feast of colors!
A really great contribution to our theme of June. All the picture - and especially the large version - emanates a somehow solemn atmosphere. A photo like a painting - and the full moon here is the cherry on the cake.
Greetings from hot and sticky Germany!
What a gorgeous photo, not only for its pristine reflections but as a whole, the beautiful mountains,the glowing trees on full autumn colours and even a full moon . One can almost hear the silence A wondeful mood. No wonder you want to return to this place over and over again.
P.S. We have added checks of allowed CI and panorama image dimensions into the upload, It was earlier possible to upload these images even that they had dimensions, which exceeded the restrictions. Due to a mistake the CI and panorama images were resized between 16 May and 8 June even in cases where the dimensions fulfilled the rules. This resulted in photo quality deteriorating. The error has now been fixed. You can re-upload your panorama image to make the quality best.
when I was there it was raining and with a touch of fog. a nothing view from nothing... you know...
marvelous this view with the most special light and weather. better than this is impossible. fantastic.
