On this cold Fall morning I only had one thought in mind and that was to get myself up and out the door to see what images I could capture. As the Fall days progress the daylight hours shorten it is now dark in the early morning hours. The dark colder mornings definitely makes it harder to get motivated for the day ahead. If I am not awake when I leave the house I am by the time I reach my truck. Cold air does a great job of awakening you in quick step.
Like most mornings I proceeded to drag myself out of bed, started the truck to warm it up ahead of the upcoming drive. On this morning my journey took me past the Afton Mormon Temple which I have photographed before. A beautiful building for sure but I am so used to seeing it during the day that I usually just pass on by. This morning was no exception as I just drove right on by but on this morning I looked into my rearview mirror and saw the building all lighted up and thought I would turn around and take a few shots.
I pulled a U-Turn and parked across the highway as I have done before and it was then I discovered no tripod in the car. After a couple of seconds I decided too bad I was not going home to get it so I decided to take my pictures hand held. They came out pretty good but I will definitely have to come back and set my tripod up for some better longer exposed shots.
One final thought… I was not immediately sure what else I was missing and it was then I realized I had NO COFFEE with me. This made this short journey a bit more of a challenge but I assure you my next picture event at the LDS Temple will include a tripod and very LARGE cup of fresh hot coffee…
New for 2020! Like our drink coasters we are also offering some of our selected Wyoming Photography on a really nice 11 ounce solid black ceramic mugs. We looked at a lot of mugs and being a coffee drinker I wanted one that looked good, felt right in your hand, microwave safe and easy to wash.
Some great looking mugs are a bit too large in that your coffee or tea gets cold before you get to the bottom of the mug. Now you can take home some memories of our awesome state. The perfect gift for those who LOVE Wyoming! We strive to make all our products “Authentic Wyoming”.
Recently I took some early morning pictures of the relatively new Mormon Temple built here in Afton Wyoming. After many requests I am making two images available to order. If you are interested in either of these two images CLICK HERE.
I have ordered and have in stock both of these images in 11×14 metal prints. These can be hung directly on your wall with the included mounting hardware or have them framed for a truly stunning effect. Available now.
I have just ordered some 16×24 Metal prints of this big boy. This image was capture in the summer of 2017 north of Jackson Hole Wyoming in the Antelope Flats area. Part of the Yellowstone herd comes south each summer to hang out in this awesome spot that sits basically within or right next to Teton National Park, north of Jackson Hole Wyoming.
This image can be reproduced in pretty much any size but I really like the the 16×24 vertical presentation. Not too big and not too small. If a more contemporary look is your desire hang directly on your wall. If you are looking for a more traditional fits to you space maybe add a nice frame. Available now.
