    Greg and I took advantage of a couple of vacation days and some great weather and spent a day hiking in Grand Teton National Park. I know, I know, I am so lucky we can make day trips there.......

    It was such a nice diversion from all the bad news on the TV that I've been following lately. More to come.....

    Hey Terri,

    awesome shots,

    Really like number 2 and 3, they are superb, the first shot, leaves me wanting to see more, I like the layers and other aspects of the image, but I was wanting to see more of what I was missing. :biggrin: Hard to explain, Regardless, love #1 too, just telling you that I WANT MORE PICS! More sweeping vistas, more more more more........ (I feel like a 2 year old right now! :wink: )

    congrats on some great work. Your post work is just superb, great eye, great details and feeling.

  3. Well Terri, I would whole heartedly second what Wade has said. Simply outstanding images, #1 is striking but I also want to see what's out there on the ends.
     
  4. These are spectacular. As you know, I can never get enough Teton photos. My brothers and I were supposed to go up there this past weekend, but the plans fell through. Thanks for showing what we missed.
     
  5. #2 does it the most for me, it feels very authentic.
     
  6. Terri,

    Honestly amazing work. Your photos have been a strong inspiration to me since I joined here in 2008. You really should teach a class in landscape photography (if you don't already) and post-processing the images, your composition and grasp of colors is just amazing.

  7. Terri,

    I always enjoy viewing your photos--and these are no exception.

    I once had the experience of completing a 65 mile backcountry trip through the Tetons with my brother. What an experience that was!

    WOW Teri

    as I said in my last post in your other thread, I very rarely get a chance to look here but spotted these with your name and I knew they would be good.

    I have to say, for me, breathtaking....

    Wonderful Images Teri

    Best wishes

    More beautiful Teton shots on NC :biggrin:

    You are so lucky to live a hop, skip and a jump away.

    Fall in the UK is this.
    Leaves are green.
    Leaves start to turn brown.
    Weather is winding with constant rain.
    Leaves hit the ground.
    The End :biggrin:

    Nice pics. I was there 2 weeks ago, and looked totally different. It was raining half the time, when I was there.

    Thanks so much, Wade. I wish I had more time to work on post processing some of the others I took. We are having a gorgeous fall. I hope to get out more.

    Thanks, Louis. Guess No. 1 didn't work so well. There wasn't anything on the ends to see. One side had a road. The brightly lit trees were what caught my eye. Often the Tetons are hard to photograph because there isn't a lot of variety in the sagebrush areas, which makes for boring foregrounds.

    Oh, too bad you had to miss being there. It is really beautiful right now with very few people. For the first couple of hours of our hike we didn't come across any other people on the trail.

    Thanks so much. The hike around those lakes and enjoying the reflections was so much fun.

    Jay,
    You are way too kind. I could never teach a class; I still have too much to learn myself. Thank you so much for your encouragement. I just keep trying to improve and learn more every day.

    I bet that was a fabulous experience. Wish I could do something like that-----maybe if I was 20 years younger....

    Darn....that doesn't sound like any fun at all. Idaho has rough winters but our autumns are so nice. When we are so cold this winter you can tell me that your weather is better than ours.:biggrin:
