Oxbow Bend, Grand Tetons NP, USA
Sony A7r, Sony 16-50mm, f/11, 1/30sec, ISO 100

We spent 4 days at the Tetons. Some nights we were staying up past midnight to photograph the Milky Way and every morning getting up at 04:00 so we could make it out for sunrise.

We had gone between Schwabachers Landing, Oxbow Bend and Signal Mountain on different mornings for sunrise pictures with reflections, but that morning we chose Oxbow Bend and I am so glad we did. As the sun rose we could see the clouds changing from pink to red, to orange. As we stood there my friend commented, "This is the best sunrise I have ever seen".

What is awesome about Oxbow Bend is the amount of wildlife nearby. Across the river from us there was a Great Blue Heron’s nest and before the sun rose, you could hear them cackling at one another! If you haven’t heard the sounds of a Great Blue Heron, it is very disconcerting! This is why I jokingly call them pterodactyls. I can only imagine that’s what one would sound like. There was also a family of Bald Eagles in the area so if you look closely, you will see an eagle soaring overhead as well. Of course, no one can forget the White Pelicans – they love to swim back and forth across the river, messing up the reflections for all the photographers in the area.

During the evenings I saw beavers, otters, Merganser ducks, Canada geese and muskrats. The area is also known for deer, moose and black bears. The trip really cemented the Grand Tetons as one of my all-time favorite locations for both landscape and nature photography. If you haven’t been, it is a must see!
