~ Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming ~ Late afternoon at the Snake River Overlook. This was taken near the spot made famous by Ansel Adams who captured a famous image here in 1942. I'm no Ansel but I can see why he was so captivated by this view.

It really is an amazing view, expecially in the fall colours. Beautifully photographed Tom.

I like it. Very beautiful composition and wonderful colors. A great photo with very good control of the levels of light and shadow, © Tom Lussier.

Can't make my mind up whether to go to Wyoming or Montana or the Californian Sierras on my next visit. It's so hard to choose!

Beautiful as always Tom; I've wanted to visit that region of the country for a while, but you're helping speed the process up with your terrific photos!

Tom on September 29, 2010

Many thanks folks for the appreciation and kind words. And a special thanks for the Like's and Fav. This scene was a challenge since it was mid-afternoon when all good photographers are supposed to put their cameras away. :) Just goes to show that rules are meant to be broken. Because sometimes you get lucky. :)

All the best,


P.S. For those trying to decide if this is a good place to visit...don't give it a second thought. It's unnecessarily beautiful in my opinion. :)

Tom, gone through your gallery form last to first and have been blown away with your work. You and few other of your fellow country men have shown me an America I haven't seen before. Now thanks to you, all I want to do now is move over there with my fishing rods:) LIKE
