Storm clouds dance across the highest peaks of the Cathedral Range of the Grand Tetons.

Stunningly gorgeous! My late wife was a Wyoming girl. We've been inside the park a couple of times, and also on the "back" side coming from Idaho, but we've never been to this overlook. Is the overlook inside the park boundary? And did you split-tone this? It appears very monochrome but I discern some deep, dark green in the trees. Wow. Wotta shot. You had to be freezing. :S

Thanks Chuck, It is a overlook on the main highway US191 and it is called the "Snake River Overlook". I use light room in the HSL adjustment and I take the Blue saturation slider to the minus side. It was not that cold maybe 50s. I noticed the Wyoming girls are special type of woman tuff but amazing like the Tetons.

I like it and I don't, but understand that's a good thing for any art that makes me think makes me look again and that's what we really want isn't it?

Well done and thank you for sharing this with us. It's another place added to the list! S-

I understand and I only had the stormy weather to work with on 90% of my trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons. I was there 10 days and one 3 day period I never saw the Tetons with snow falling everyday.
