I Truly Hate Hiking
Unless of course it’s near Jackson, Wyoming. Hiking isn’t the only thing we did in Jackson Hole. We also shopped and ate way too much. And of course, we took a few pictures. (Some of the best shots from this trip were shot by the Kellster!) It’s hard to pick favorites. Here are just a…
OK – Enough with the Work Already!
Let’s get back to that vacation thing. I like that better…
More from Wyoming
Some of my favorite shots from our trip. Thanks to all of you. What a great time.
Welcome to Panorama Country
Jackson Hole experienced its greatest snow accumulation ever this year, and we were lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. I’m posting these images super large this time so you can check out the details. (I’ll add GPS info as soon as I get a chance.) The images in…
One More Shot from Wyoming
Almost forgot this one.
Cascade Canyon Panorama
Ben takes in the awesome sight.
View from the Amangani
The beautiful Amangani Resort in Jackson Hole. This is actually a 6-image panoramic image, shot with my trusty Nikkor 50 mm and stitched with AutoPano Pro.
While it may not be my best photo ever, this one has the distinction of occupying more disk space than any other. Comprised of 37 hand-held frames, shot with my cheapest lens due to it’s low distortion, and stitched together with the mind-blowing AutoPano Pro. The original is more than 24,000 pixels wide. The 16-bit…
Welcome to Wyoming
Here is my second attempt at recreating one of Ansel Adams’ masterpieces. A faithful reader points out that in this shot of Kelly in the the canyon, the mountain on the left (Mt. Owen) is 6000 vertical feet above Kelly and the peak is just one mile as the bird flies from that spot —…
Bar B C Ranch
Chris’ grandfather, Struthers Burt, founded the first dude ranch in Wyoming – the Bar B C. We toured what remains of this historic ranch. An attempt is being made at restoring the site, but so far, the birthplace of Chris’ dad (seen above) remains as it was – untouched for decades.
Our Wonderful Wives
Chris and I have much in common, but by far the best thing we share is our beautiful wives. (Hm. That doesn’t sound exactly right…) There is nothing like the feeling that comes with knowing you’ll share the rest of your life with the kindest, most loving, most talented and beautiful women you have ever…
Ansel, 1, thedude, 0
The scene has changed a lot since 1941, and I had very little snow and no clouds at all to work with. So that’s my excuse.
More from Wyoming
Chris knows this part of the world like the back of his hand, so he took us to several of his favorite spots. He led us on a few short hikes and one very long one. (More on that later.) We drove up Shadow Mountain, (Google Earth Placemark) and back down to Jenny Lake for…
Grand Tetons Panorama
I saw numerous examples of images like these in galleries throughout Jackson. (The cabin in the scenes below is the most photographed structure in the park.) Many were shot with a large format camera and exhibited breathtaking sharpness and supernatural colors.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Our best friends Chris and Ben have a very cool cabin just a few yards outside the Grand Teton National Park. This shot was taken from the deck shortly after sunrise on Friday morning. We stared at this view for three days and barely noticed the structures in the foreground – our eyes were fixed…
