Big Sky Country

Uploaded: April 02, 2009 19:43:32


This is early morning near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The backdrop to this classic old Mormon barn is the Teton Mountain Range shrouded in fast-moving clouds rising from the heat as the sun warms the east side of the mountains. (Shot with a Canon EF28-135mm lens with polarizer, bracketed shots, and combined in HDR using Photomatix Pro. Further processed in Photoshop CS3.)
