Photographer's Note

Location: Snake River Overlook just off Highway 191 in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.

About the Photo: This photo was taken almost a half an hour after "sunrise" (sunrise never really happened because of clouds). I had given up hope that the sun would ever break free of the thick clouds on the horizon behind me and was getting my stuff ready to leave, but some teenage boy started talking to me about some cool hikes I should go on. After about five minutes of talking the sun all of a sudden broke free. So I quickly set my tripod back up and took several pictures. I thanked the boy for not letting me leave. There was also a lot of smoke in the air from a forest fire to the east, which is visible as a hazy layer just above the tips of the mountains. This was the first morning of four that I spent photographing the Tetons. I just got back today, so I'll be posting many more photos from my trip in the coming days.
Focal length was 13mm.

Side Note: I chose this location because of the clouds. When I first woke up they were above another good shooting location about 10 miles to the south, but I noticed they were moving slowly north and decided to come here and wait for them. They arrived right on cue.
