Tag Archives: John Moulton Barn
I was just reminiscing about some of the places I’ve been this past year and thinking about some trips I want to take next year and Grand Teton National Park seems to alway pop up on the list. The park never seems really crowded and not over commercialized and the beauty of the park is just overwhelming.
This was early morning at John Moulton Barn. I love the sunlight on this barn just after sunrise and like to capture it from the willows. You can move up along the willows and get many different perspectives of the barn. This particular morning the evening storm clouds were moving over the Teton Mountain Range onto the prairie so I capture the last bits of it along the range allowing the wonderful blue Wyoming skies to take over for the day. What an amazing view to wake up to every morning!
- Use if the tilt-shift lens allowed me to make the barn and mountains look more upright instead of the layed back look you sometimes get with wide angles. It’s the same concept of capturing tall buildings and the tilt-shift allows you to straighten out lines. I used the 17mm Tilt-shift on this image to get the wide angle perspective.

Walking back along the trail after shooting the sunrise at North Clear Creek Falls, Ryan spotted a big huge marmot perched on a rock. I had my 24-70 on my camera and took a few shots, but thought by the time I changed out my lens to my 70-200 the marmot would be gone. What do you know, he just sat there staring at us and I was able to continue walking down the path toward it with my 70-200 and captured this image. Smile!

This is the John Moulton Barn. This is the northern Moulton Barn. The Thomas Moulton Barn, which I showed you last week, was built in 1910 and then Thomas helped brother John build this barn in 1911-1912. Many people don’t realize there are two Moulton Barns built along Mormon Row in the Antelope Flats area. The John Moulton barn is more out in the open and surrounded by sage and brush giving the scene a completely different textures enhancing the foreground of the scene. There was a time when people wanted to tear down these barns, but through historic and conservation efforts these two wonderful historic barns are being preserved and adds to the history of the Grand Teton National Park area.
Have a great weekend!
