I was unsure if she would get up for a morning sunrise but surprisingly she was ecstatic to spend time with dad. She was also able to take a few pictures herself.

Droplets part 2
I plan on each day this week posting a picture during my time spent out in the fog a few days ago. Here is a picture of a tree branch with a few water droplets from the rain. There is nothing elaborate about the composition but I really liked how the branch and droplets stood out from the fog in the background.
I also added a 100% crop so that you can see how much detail is in a 100 megapixel image.
I was only able to get up one morning on our trip to take sunrise pictures. Unfortunate rain and arctic blast that sent cold temperatures all the way to Southern Florida didn’t help the situation, especially when I didn’t pack for 30 degree weather.

Clearing through the fog – The Bean (Cloud Gate)
I don’t know why I’m so drawn towards this enormous sculpture. Each time I go there I try to take a shot that is better than the last. Unfortunately, this visit did not cooperate like I hoped. I still think most would approve?

Majestic Reflections – Taggart Lake – part 2
When we reached Taggart Lake for the beautiful sunrise there was not a cloud in the sky. We were there for about 30 minutes and I noticed all the clouds moving in. We waited just long enough to capture this.

Majestic Reflections – Taggart Lake – Happy 4th of July
On our 2nd to last day in Grand Teton National Park my nephew and woke up early to hike to Taggart Lake (2 mile hike). It was a beautiful morning and we got there at sunrise. I quickly set up my camera and decided a panoramic would work best. I’m sure others will say that I had much better shots taken at other locations but this location for some reason really sticks with me. Maybe it’s the fact that I knew nobody else but me and my nephew were around and we could enjoy the peaceful and majestic sunrise together. Last, in a few days I will post one more picture from this location. That picture, maybe my favorite overall is a great example of why you need to be patient!
