The first snow of the season had fallen, and I was eager to see what was revealed as the clouds parted. The leaves of autumn were still golden, and that, along with the first snow, was sure to be special. These images were all made on one morning, October 7th. The day dawned cold, and there was just enough light to catch the fading stars as the clouds lifted from the mountains. In the early dawn, the fall colors were revealed. For a time the light was flat, and clouds seemed to move back in, but as the sun rose over the eastern horizon, it lit up the peaks and accented the clouds above. It was a moment of glory. As the morning grew, a moose and her calf appeared on the scene, lending an unmistakable exclamation to a Teton morning.

Photo 3 looks like a telephoto shot. ‘ It was a moment of glory ‘ absolutely !
That one was made with a 70-200mm lens, and thanks!
Oh Russ, what beautiful work. Thanks for sharing this beautiful morning – allowing me to stay in bed. 🙂
Thanks for the kind words. Glad to share, and I must say while I hope everyone can enjoy the wilderness, I’m glad that they don’t all do it at the same time as me. : )
So you are telling me you are glad I stayed in bed that morning. 🙂
Gorgeous! As the hot summer season approaches in Mozambique, I may have to come back to these photos to bask in their coolness.
Glad you guys got back there safely! Enjoy those warm evenings…
