    I live about 100 miles from Grand Teton Park. I posted a thread about my bear adventures in the park yesterday in the Animals Forum. There were a couple of landscape shots there, but here are a few more. I didn't really get pictures of the peaks--wrong time of day. But there is more to the park than the gorgeous mountains.

    Love the park. Hope to get back soon for more pictures. I plan to get there in the morning next time, for shots of the peaks.

    As always--love suggestions, questions, or criticism.
     
  2. Beautiful images Terri. I especially like the waterfall image, it has great lighting and just the right amount of blur to the water. Well done.
     
  3. Terri these are fantastic! I love that waterfall shot! You even have detail in the water. Way cool!

    I had pretty much ruled out Jackson for a quick photography get-away but these are making me reconsider.

    Nice work!!
     
  4. These are great, Terri. I especially like the first one; the detail in the distant mountains is superb. Did you take it with the 18-70 "kit" lens?

    You are lucky to live near such a beautiful place.

    Thanks Gordon. I didn't really know the best settings for waterfalls and I don't have a ND filter, so I just got the shutter as slow as I could get it, 1/5 second. I guess it must have worked. Got lucky, I guess.

    I post my pics on pbase and they have the exif there. Do you know why it won't show up here on a right click of the picture. I have an exif viewer installed and I can get it on some pictures I see here.

    Hi Kevin,
    Thanks for the compliment. As I told Gordon, the waterfall was a lucky guess. I just got the shutter as slow as I could get it.

    Teton Park and Yellowstone are both photography paradises. You may want to consider a trip here. Both parks are so close to each other, they really are like one big park. I need to spend more time in both--just isn't enough hours in a day!!! Besides that, my husband just bought a new boat and he wants to be waterskiing at a couple of local reservoirs near here.

    Hi Pa

    All were taken with the kit lens. Someday I'll get a pro wide angle lens, but not this year. I'm really happy with the results I get from the kit lens; it is quite good.

    I am lucky to live here, in the summer anyway.

    Robert, Thank you so much. Your encouragement is most appreciated. I really have so few skills, that I appreciate it when others make me want to keep learning.

    Thank you Frank. It is so beautiful there, it would be hard to take a BAD picture. I love it there and hope to get back next weekend for more photography.

    You have a different kind of beauty in your country. I do feel lucky to live where I do, though.
     
  15. Terri you have the eye for composition.

    Thank you Gilles. Maybe I just get lucky sometimes.
     
  17. Hello Terri

    You - lucky with your shots? I think not!

    Partly as a result of your posts here and on the OlyTalk DP Review forum (which I dearly miss and often still visit), I set about to visit Wyoming this summer . . .

    My father told me that Yellowstone was the most beautiful place he'd ever seen. After three days there, I understand his viewpoint.

    I hope to work up a few snaps from your neck of the woods in the next few days, and will share them here hoping for some feedback.

    Your shots have inspired me to choose this trip, and I thank you for that.

    Your pal,

    catalyst
