Teton Moonrise

8 1/4"x 22 1/4"

Overnighting in Jackson in mid-winter, we rose at 4.30am to get a shot of the sun rising over the Tetons. This particular spot is well-known-where there is a bend in the Snake River. We arrived in good time and almost froze to death in perfect winter darkness with not a breath of wind as we exited our car to take a peek. My friend Terry commented on what a perfectly still morning it was, as I sat by the heater warming my hands and cursing under my breath. The light came slowly then in a rush as it always does, and as the suns first rays began to touch the mountain peaks, the fog moved in and diffused the light creating a soft magnificent stage-like effect. This is the result.
