The weather played havoc on my 4 day trip to the Grand Tetons (snowed the last two days June 11th and 12th), but I did manage to get really good light one morning for these shots from Snake River Overlook.

Very nice shots. Especially the first one. The brilliant morning light was worth the wait.

No, they were taken with the 24-105mm on a 5D I rented for the trip. The top shot was taken at 45mm (equivalent to 28mm on a crop), the second at 70mm (44mm on a crop) and the last at 35mm (22mm on a crop).

For some reason I like the first one best. Maybe it is how it leads the eye in. Course they are all amazing though.

I find my eye wandering a little bit in the high sky on number 1, but really like the detail of the range and the river below. Wonderful shots.. that first one is great :)

They look a little flat, might wanna bump the contrast.

Awesome scenery. I used to have a picture of those on my desktop years ago, with a fire red sky. Cool to know where it was now.

Very nice shots...that 5D was just made for landscapes. I need to get up there sometime (if I can only keep myself out of the southwest). :)

PS You've got a few dust spots in the two horizontal pics...time to give the sensor a clean.

The composition is great in all of the images, but the first one is my favorite because of the clear sky and spectacular colors.
