Okay so it’s official. I’ve lost my mind. Maybe it’s the lack of sleep with the our new addition. I got a comment on this last post from one of my really good friends who I grew up with (Danny) asking if I’d recieved the picture he and his wife sent for Thursday’s Photo Challenge. I was absolutely SURE I hadn’t received it… buuuuut as I scrolled through my email I realized I received it LAST Thursday evening! I’m sorry Danny!
The picture is absolutely beautiful and is perfectly framed between the illuminated trees, the sun, and the winding road. Danny says, “This picture was taken in Jackson Hole last fall. I asked Maddie where she wanted to go anywhere the world for a honeymoon and she said she just wanted to to to Jackson Hole with the camera. So we spent 5 days in Jackson, the Tetons, and Yellowstone filling memory cards and came back with quite the selection. This is one of my favorites. We got up before dawn to photograph the sunrise one day and as we were driving around I thought this was really picturesque, so I pulled over and snapped a few shots. I love the variety of effects that the rising sun has on the trees. On the left the trees aren’t back illuminated, so they just appear as a clumped silhouette. In the middle (beyond the road) they are being lit from behind as is the sky, which creates a neat effect. Then on the right where the sun is shining through, the lighting highlights every detail of the branches.”
Kim and I recently did this for our “Baby Moon” a couple of months ago and it was probably one of the best trips we’ve ever been on. Nothing planned, just woke up and hopped into the car with the camera. I know for Kim and I it was one of those trips we will always look back on. Beautiful photo Danny, I’m looking forward to seeing more of your photos!
