Have you heard of Oxbow Bend in Grand Teton National Park?
That answer is most likely "Yes!"
Oxbow Bend is a mandatory bucket list location for any photographer remotely interested in capturing landscapes.
Aside from being incredibly beautiful with a potentially huge mirror surface in the foreground waiting double that beauty and create vertical symmetry, you can drive up to this large area alongside the Snake River and photograph with little or even no hiking involved.
The imagery to effort ratio is potentially huge.
This is not the first image I shared from this morning and place (and I have more favorites yet unshared).
But, with ever-changing cloud patterns, new scenes were continuously presented and a huge range of focal lengths could be utilized to isolate only what is considered positive to the composition.
On that latter note, at the time this image was captured, I was having trouble determining what should be isolated.
After capturing a variety of images, I opted for a 2-image panorama framed to include the most of the amazingness in one pair of images.
I figured that, after creating the higher resolution stitched image, I could later decide what the final crop should be.
