August 2016: Landscape photography project in Grand Teton National Park

In August 2016, we spent several days in Grand Teton National Park in order to photograph the famous mountain of the same name, which rises to 4198 meters (13,770 feet) above sea level.
The purpose of this landscape photography project is to create a new collection of fine art photographs. We decided to follow in the footsteps of the photographer Ansel Adams. We carefully studied all the photographs taken by that renowned photographer. We were very disappointed to find that it was impossible to reproduce the famous picture "Grand Teton and the Snake River" because the view of the river is almost completely obstructed by trees.
All the photographs we have made show Grand Teton in various compositions and framings. For example, we used a barn in the foreground of one photo, the Snake River in another, and a meadow in others.
The goal of this landscape photography project was to show the famous mountain in creative ways and from every angle. As always, we preferred the lights of dawn and dusk, but we also took some pictures during the day.
Taking pictures in Grand Teton National Park can be challenging because some places are difficult to access. Also, it is hard to find the right place to set the tripod to get the right point of view.
The photos that we propose in this news are raw and come directly from the camera. They will be used to create fine art collections.
