Windstorm on the prairie
I shot this picture a year ago and had posted a version of this back then. This particular composition though, sat unedited until now. My friend Jason Nash and his family took a detour today to the Grand Teton National Park on their way back home to Texas from the West Coast. Jason was instrumental in convincing me to visit the great natural wonders of the Tetons and Yellowstone.
I was there at the Mormon Row for about 30 minutes and an intense wind storm swept the place kicking up dust and making the waist high grass move like water on choppy seas.
The storm was quick and intense. Luckily there was not much of rain but there was as a light show that made for a very interesting scene with the Thomas Moulton Barn sitting on the prairie with the Teton range as its back ground. The added bonus was that there were no photographers in sight.
In retrospect I wish I had spent a little more time here as the storm picked up. But we were hungry and left for the Jackson Lake Lodge for dinner. Grand Teton National Park is one of a kind and though this historic barn and the scenic Teton Range have been photographed from every imaginable angle, there is always an element of awe from anywhere you look at it.
