Jaw-dropping – YES, it really does look like this! The lupine in parts of Grand Teton National Park are quite extraordinary at just the right time of year. This little pond is ephemeral, and is the perfect mirror for sunrise over the Tetons. It’s worth the wait to see this lovely scene! Canon 40D, tripod, f 22, 1/2, RAW, focal length 28mm. Grand Teton National Park (near Moran, Wyoming, USA). Views 13,456 and Faves 246 as of 19 February 2012, thanks for stopping by! Featured 39 times between features and winning challenges as of 16 Nov 2012, thank you all!
