I have a double photo treat for you today! This scene was certainly a delight for me as I gazed out from the patio area of Jackson Lake Lodge, after finishing up a lunch break on the May photo tour.
Most weather days on the trip were overcast, and we were always trying to hop from area to another so that we could avoid a rain shower. However, we were grateful for the stormy weather because the sky was decorated with great cloud texture.
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Photographs of dramatic skies and mountain scenery also beg for a classic black and white treatment too. So here is another version.
Which one is your favorite? Color or black and white? (P.S. Don't forget to click on each image to see it bigger!)
they're both gorgeous, but i think i'd have to vote for color. :)ReplyDelete
I like the first one as the clouds make the snow-capped mountains pop. It's a beautiful scene either way. I hope you have a good first week of summer.ReplyDelete
Both beautiful, but love the black & white version. Reminds me of an Ansel Adams image.ReplyDelete
Color. Always color. Amazing clarity! I could count the trees if I had the time! =DReplyDelete
Omg Donna, I know how hard it is to capture things in that area. The 360 is so amazing and overwhelming that a straight shot seems small. You did an amazing job on this one and I do prefer the black and white. I do hope your doing better and your foot is healing. Take care!ReplyDelete
They are both gorgeous, but I think I have to go with the color!ReplyDelete
I like the colored one.ReplyDelete
Both are great and as much as I love the black and white the color one wins my vote on this oneReplyDelete
Hard to choose they are both so stunning, but my eye keeps going beck to the color one! Something about that blue...ReplyDelete
What a place to visit and photograph! Whenever I'm asked that question, it's always the colour that I prefer.ReplyDelete
Love the color photo. Seems to pop more. Such a beautiful place to visit!ReplyDelete
You can reach out and almost touch it! Fabulous, Donna. I prefer the color one with what look like Fall colors at the bottom.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous photos, both of them. But I'd vote for the color. Such a majestic view. Better than eating lunch (almost).ReplyDelete
I love the black and white.ReplyDelete
Hmmm...that's a tough choice, Donna. They are both stunning but if I had to choose, I guess I'd go with the colored one :)ReplyDelete
How to choose?! They are both so beautiful!! I suppose, if pressed, I'd have to choose the color photo, simply for its realism. But, wow!!ReplyDelete
I love the color photo. Just beautiful. Those should be framed!ReplyDelete
Breathtaking! Both photos are amazing but I love the black and white - it is very distinctive. I'm catching up after a trip out of town without internet connection. What a treat to come home and find your gorgeous photos. This is one National Park that is on my bucket list! One of these days I hope to see it in person.ReplyDelete
