Grand Teton Mountain Range in Grey and Pink Morning Sunlight by Jo Ann Tomaselli
As my 3 month cross-country journey in a 21 foot camper unfolded I'd sometimes wonder how I got so lucky. Not just to have 3 months of leisure travel but how I could be in places like Grand Tetons National Park in Wyoming and having it (almost) all to myself.
My super secret travel tip? If you want to experience the natural beauty of the countryside in the US without the crowds, hit the road in September! Not only was I able to photograph landscapes without humans, I never had to make a reservation for a campground– even at Yellowstone National Park!
One morning, while basking in the quiet & solitude of my deep woods campsite, in the darkness before dawn, I grabbed my camera, tripod & a travel mug full of coffee and set out for a walk.
You have to understand something - I'm an ocean girl and unfamiliar with mountainous regions so setting out on this walk, alone & in the dark with only a vague idea of which way to go in order to reach Jenny Lake for a sunrise photography session was a bit of a psychological challenge!
After a15 minuet walk in the brisk but clear darkness, the woods opened to a rock filled beach and there, across the lake in the beautiful pink and gray morning, loomed the Grand Tetons.
I made several exposures on this glorious morning but this is one of my favorites so you can imagine how delighted I was when this image was awarded an Honorary Mention by the Photographic Society of America, a worldwide organization for casual shutterbugs, serious armatures and professional photographers.
