Oxbow Bend is one of the photographic icons of the Jackson Hole area. While Fall is wonderful at it’s peak, I actually find joy in looking for those moments post-peak where the color is even more intense, and some trees already appear like bones. These were my favorite images made throughout Autumn.
Such jaw-dropping photos! The whiteness of the snow-capped mountains with the colors of autumn at the foreground create a majestic, and almost surreal, view.
Appreciate that, I was so happy that the first snows same before the colors were gone!
Love, love, love!
I needed to see this this morning. Thanks.
You got it!
Russ…spectacular! Love them all, but the last one, with it’s ribbon of low-lying clouds is awesome for its contrasts as is the third for its surreal-ness and palette of colors. Amazing shots, Russ.

Wowww. I bet you have the best framed photos in your house! So beautiful.
I don’t really have a house, but they’ve been found in galleries from time to time, thanks!
Oooh that makes sense.. I just found your blog so I guess I still don’t know your whole story! Pretty cool about the galleries though 🙂
Russ, beautiful capture of light, color and lines. I agree that a little bit post peak with the beautiful lines of bare trees is a fun time for photograph. I also enjoy the beginning of color change when the colors are contrasted with lots of green. Color really stands out then.
Thanks Pat, yes, pretty much I could say I love every stage of the color change. I’ve even paid more attention to the spring of late when the buds are in bloom.
Love your photos! Fall colors are my favorite, and the towering mountains in the backdrop make it that much more exciting. Thanks for sharing!
Hey Diana, appreciate the kind words, you’ve got a great blog going yourself!
Aw thanks so much!! 🙂
Reblogged this on O LADO ESCURO DA LUA.
Your photography is exquisite . I absolutely love it and cool look at these photos for days
Appreciate the kind words Brooke!
These photos are stunningly gorgeous. I am so priviledged to be looking at them! There’s a reason why Jackson Hole is full of very wealthy people. Social commentary aside, I was so struck by the Lord’s creation … the juxtaposition of that incredibly blue sky with the striking mountains, the intensity of the color of fall leaves, the perfect stillness of the water, and in some, the low layer of clouds. So glad you were there to capture these images, and so grateful to the Lord who created them.
It’s so good to be a witness!
So beautiful, Russ. I expect being there in person was amazing!
It really was!
The colours are just incredible!
It was so beautiful!
As always, your photographs are stunning. Love the color & contrast with the mountains & trees. Very, very nice captures.
Appreciate that Amy!
