OXBOW BEND 63 © 2006Grand Teton National Park
When we first entered the Grand Teton National Park, we drove by this location and were stunned by the beauty of it. I was determined to photograph the scene with my 12″ x 20” view camera. It took several mornings of getting up at 4:30 am, weaving through the buffalo and moose traffic meandering across the road, and setting up the camera before the sun came up, in hopes that the light would be right. Setting up a 12″ x 20” view camera is no easy feat! The 12″ x 20” view camera, film, lenses, and three tripods weigh 120 lbs. Needless to say, it takes a while to set it up. After several mornings of waiting for the right light, I was able to capture this scene.
