We do not want merely to see beauty… we want something else which can hardly be put into words- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. -C.S. Lewis
This week’s post is about my having looked for classic Teton scenes to photograph in the Fall. A few are known classics, while others are secret spots that I scouted out during the season that I thought might have a classic feel to them. Perhaps they’ll age like a fine wine.

This is the arguably the most classic scene in the Tetons, the view from Oxbow Bend.

Mt Moran beneath an autumn sky. You have to hike a little ways to get to this jewell of a view.
My friends laugh that I’m no wildlife photographer, but I can still spot them in their natural setting. They told me I could only find moose among willows. Nonsense I told them. Here, a couple of moose walk around the hills laden with sagebrush.
I was out photographing, looking for scenes that you might deem “classic,” when I ran across this place.
