I decided to take a drive and ended up in Jackson Hole Wy. This is one of my favorite places. I wanted to try light painting and couldn't think of a better subject than the barns on Morman Row. This was a new experience for me, the first night was an education . The second night I ended up with a couple of good images.
I wanted to photograph the famous Oxbow Bend and I tried for three mornings to get an image with still water and a perfect reflection. I did not get that. I was also a week late to catch the peak folage for the year but I did get a pretty nice picture this one morning.
Schwabachers Landing was also on my destination list since it was closed last year. I headed there, as I looked over the bluff I was amazed at the mass of cars at the parking lot. Something was going on other than the standard landscape shot.
Another image I wanted to take was the Patriarch Tree. It is located near the String Lake Parking Area. It took three hikes to the tree to finally get the image that I called the "keeper image." I have no idea how old the tree is but it is one of the oldest around.
