The second group of new images from my Rocky Mountains photo tour is now online and ready to view. Click this link to view them.  This group represents close to three weeks of backpacking photography in the Wind River Range of Wyoming.

If you have been following my blog over the past several years you’ll know that  the Winds have been on my “must return to list” for quite some time. They are an extensive high elevation mountain range encompassing three wilderness areas. There are enough peaks lakes and glaciers in the Winds to keep a photographer busy for an entire lifetime.

This was my fourth trip to the Winds, and by far my most successful. The past trips were plagued by poor light and or smoke from wildfires. However, this time there were plenty of opportunities to photograph in exceptional light.

Here is a list of the locations from this trip. After I finish the next edits of Grand Teton, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Parks I’ll be following up with more posts detailing each of the trips from this tour.

  • Bonneville Lakes Basin
  • Island Lake/Titcomb Basin/Indian Basin
  • Green River Lakes/Green River/Squaretop Mountain

And of course, all images are ready and available as Fine Art Prints and for Commercial Licensing.

I’m wrapping up nearly three weeks weeks of photography in the main segment of my photo tour, the Wind River Range of Wyoming. This part of the trip was a major undertaking for me. Hiking and photographing in the Wind River Range is quite unlike the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho. The Sawtooth’s were three mainly moderate length trips at around 18 to 25 miles each, at 8000′ elevation. The trips in the Wind’s however were about 35 to 40 miles each. Trailheads were  starting at 9500′, with trails eventually reaching 11,500′ elevation. I’m glad I acclimated to higher altitudes in the sawtooth’s first!

Unlike previous visits to the Wind’s there was no sign of major wildfires. While the weather was mostly beautiful summer weather, I did experience several instances of exciting evening and morning light.

While in the Wind’s I also continued experimenting with some night photography. I’m new to this genre of photography, but so far I’m finding it very enjoyable. Although I’d much rather being catching some sleep after a long day of hiking, photographing and swatting mosquitoes!

Now that the busy Labor Day Weekend is over I can safely venture into the next part of the trip. This includes Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, followed by the Beartooth Highway.
