    Happy Easter!

    We have been so busy with family matters that little trips have been out of the question for Greg and I........until today.

    During April, the road through Teton Park that is closed all winter is plowed and open for non-motorized traffic only. Last year we went there on a bike ride and loved it so much we vowed we would do it every year.

    Today the forecast was for clear skies and fairly warm (for Teton Park:biggrin: ) temperatures. It seemed like the perfect time to go. It isn't the best time of day for landscapes, but these areas took a while to get to on our bikes. Don't know how you would do it for sunrise and sunset unless you took equipment to sleep outside--which doesn't sound too appealing to me!

    Here are some shots from our day. I'm disappointed because I had Greg take some photos of me so I could show you that I really did do this, but I forgot to remind him to focus with the AF button so they were all blurry. Whoops!

    It was a glorious day although I probably won't be walking very well for a few days. We rode about 25 miles in three hours.

    #4 Greg Enjoying the Ride--I was pretty much shooting into the sun. Did a lot of pp to make the photo usable, but looks a bit overdone.

    It is so quiet and peaceful on the roads without all the cars.

    Gorgeous!!!!! You really have the eye for landscapes, Terri (in addition to the eye for baby portraits).

    Your photos really make me want to take a trip out to your lovely state! Maybe one of these days I might be able to convince Patrick to take off work long enough to do just that!

    If you ever come to Idaho, I would love to show your around. Seems like you are going to be quite busy this year, though!:biggrin:

    Welcome back to the land of landscapes, Terri. It's good to be outdoor, wasn't it?

    I like those snow covered mountains.

  7. All very nice Terri and I always enjoy your work.
     
  8. Beautiful as usual, Terri.

    Looks like the Jenny Lake outlet stream is quite low. Still waiting for the snowmelt runoff I guess.
     
  9. Beautiful, Terri. I'm a fan. Looking forward to more.
     
  10. Terri, Happy Easter from another fan.

    Terri, you may have been absent from landscapes for a while, but you have not lost your touch -- pure magic.
     
  12. Terri, looks cold, but very peaceful. I bet you enjoyed the ride.
     
  13. Very nice images! I love the shots with the horses. I think the Tetons are one of the most beautiful places I have been.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Great seeing some more of your work, it's been awhile. The first one here is great. The cloud accent is perfectly placed. Mike

    Teri .. I was waiting to see these quality images from you. You have a great eye for landscape photography, each and every single image is wonderful in terms of color, sharpness and composition. Very nicely done.

    Very nice! I love your eye for storytelling composition. Most of those shots have a nice beginning-middle-end to them. I was wondering how likely it would be to get closer to that first horse in the last photos, but suspect he may not have been cooperative.
     
  19. Wonderful landscape photos, Terri. Like being right there with you. Looks like you had a very successful, and fun day!
     
  20. Very pretty Terri - the play with perspective is excellent! It "makes" the picture...
