So I tried a summer shoot in a popular National Park, the Grand Tetons. Wow! I loved the new opportunities for different photos. Snow on the peaks, water everywhere, including this seasonal pond of which I have never seen wet. It only has water after above normal winters. But there were more people, too!
I came to this pond to find a wildflower shot with Mt. Moran. I couldn't find a great shot of wildflowers so I started to hike around the pond for a different view. I was startled as I made my way through the thick willows and two large bull moose jumped up from their nap. They didn't move far so I backed off and waited for them to show themselves. I was able to photograph them for 2 hours before another photographer found me and MY moose. A cell phone call and a few minutes later the calvary arrived.
