Morning Glow B&W - Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Oxbow Bend, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

What else can I say about Oxbow Bend, the Snake River and the Grand Tetons featuring magnificent Mount Moran that hasn't been said or written before? Suffice to say that it is one of the most beautiful locations in the US and attracts photographers from around the world. The morning that I shot this, it had been raining all night and it was still drizzling when I got there before sunrise. It was quite dreary out, and there weren't many people there because of the weather. Had I been staying in Jackson, I would have stayed in bed. Luck be have it, I was staying in Jackson Lake Lodge just a few minutes away. So out I went with no hope of a sunrise, but hoping Mother Nature would provide me something to shoot. Just after I got there, a small opening in the clouds let some light hit the top of Mount Moran and I was able to get this shot. I have posted this as a color shot in the past, but I thought that the black and white treatment would better depict the gloominess of the morning.
