    You have produced a wonderful collection of photos using super-wide angle lenses shot with the camera on the floor or ground. This is absolutely stunning, Ken. Just made to be POTD, for starters!

I'm with Michelle and others -- a big WOW from me, too. The use of the stripe would be enough but it's just the starter here. The sky and sunburst are gorgeous and the majesty of the Tetons is secondary -- how can that be?
