One of my favorite places for a sunrise is in Grand Teton National Park. There are so many good locations for a sunrise. This particular morning was after an evening astrophotography shoot with Ryan Wright. It was late enough in the morning that it wasn’t worth heading back to the motel in town so we parked at the Glacier View Turnout and caught a few hours of sleep in the car. It wasn’t the most pleasant of sleeping conditions but gave us just enough energy to capture the sunrise on the open range in front of Grand Teton Mountain.
We were greeted with a nice herd of bison grazing on the range and then the alpenglow hit the peaks Teton Mountain range. I don’t think the orangish-red glow on top of the Teton peaks ever gets old. I’m envious of the people who get to witness it on a daily basis.
