Sharing moments in time…

Mormon Barn – Jackson Wyoming


As promised, here is one of my photos of one of the “mormon row” barns just outside of the Grand Teton National Park near Jackson, Wyoming.  These are some of the most photographed barns in the world – there are “flocks” of photographers there most of the year trying to capture an iconic morning or dusk photo of the barns against the incredible backdrop of the Teton mountains.  Except for me – I was there at mid-day during intermittent snow squalls moving through the area.  I might not have caught the best scenery or light, but I still like this photo due to the forbidding skies and the dark mood.

  2. Thanks Cowgirl. Its pretty easy to miss the mountains with as bad as the weather was. These old ranches/barns really speak to me as the old west….

    • Lynne,
      I wasn’t as thrilled with the impending storm (I still had some driving to do) but it certainly added to the mood of the moment 🙂

    • Thanks Daniel – It was nice to find this place. I’d like to go back to get the full impact of the mountains in a shot or two.
