How I Shot It – Northern Lights and the Moulton Barn

The northern lights shine behind and above the Moulton Barn on Mormon Row in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.

I was recently asked on my Facebook photography page to do a blog post on how I shot this photo. It seemed like a good idea to me, so here’s the first installment of a series of posts that probably won’t have any kind of regularity, but I hope some people will find useful.

Best of Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris – July 6-18

I missed last week’s update, so here’s two weeks worth of favorite photos from my guided safaris with Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris. We had a lot of rain and clouds move in which helped with a lot of the wildlife shots, and even a few landscapes! I also hit Old Faithful a little later than normal recently and was able to catch a rainbow at the base of the eruption.

Clicking on any photo will allow you to purchase a print if you’re interested. – Continue reading
