39

Day 30 of 100, Nordjylland, Denmark

One from October 2014, Snake River lookout in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming: I’ve wanted to see these mountains since i can remember. It was c-c-cold when the sun hit the peaks, and we were all alone, the legions of other photographers having left the lookout earlier.

I’ve loved mountains only through writing and film. The monuments I’ve lived my life around were raised in glass, steel and concrete by human hands, not the slow burn of time.

So it was quite something to stand at the spot Ansel Adams did in ’42, looking at the Grand Tetons as he might have.

A moment of magnificent stillness.

  1. Such perfect timing on the moment for the light. The narrative intimates on how nature creates something far more intrinsically beautiful and majestically impressive than man can ever achieve sits so well with the picture. A A would have been impressed I am sure.

    1. Thank you Michael. I doubt very much that Ansel would have been particularly impressed, but it’s nice to think so ;)
