John Moulton Barn - Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

John Moulton Homestead, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

There are so many locations to shoot in Grand Teton National Park that it makes it hard to shoot every one in good light. That is one of the reasons that I keep going back there (trust me, there are quite a number of reasons). Even though I have been to the park probably five times or so, I never shot the John Moulton barn in good morning light. That is probably because of John's brother Tom's barn located about a mile down Mormon Row. Tom's barn is the iconic one that is probably the most photographed barn in the world.

The last time I was in the park, I made sure that we stopped at the John Moulton Homestead so I could finally get this other barn in good light. While it wasn't the golden sunrise light (we shot Tom's barn at sunrise) the light was still pretty decent for this photo. Using the very small creek that runs toward the home and barn as a leading line, I was able to get a pretty good composition. I would have gotten even tighter, but the roof had some packages of new shingles on it as part of some repairs that were being made to it.
