    I can't see the Tetons without thinking of the man who instilled in me a particular discipline in my photography, the concept of get it right in the camera, don't correct a problem in the darkroom. The MAN was Ansel Adams and one of his most noted images was the Grand Tetons and the Snake River. Try buying an original print for under 5 figures (one of my J profs bought a print from AA just after the War for a pittance, maybe a couple hundred bucks. I can still see the signed presentation print in his home, from ~ 1973.

    So the short story has again become long, I can't see an image of the Tetons without wondering what it looks like in B & W. To wit, if this rendering offends you I will gladly delete, regardless, this is a pretty good look of you image.

    Props for getting out on two wheels and stopping to smell the flowers.

    This was on US 26 in Wyoming when I was heading for Dubois. I think this is called Two Ocean Mountain but I could sure be wrong. If anyone knows for sure, please speak up.

    Awesome pictures on this topic.
    I will post a few poctures from the last weekend in Valcea County, Romania, showing some pictures from a rock carrier in Buila Vanturatita national park on the road DJ646. 20200802_171702.jpg Impressive view for me. Till now I have only seen this in pictures on the internet or on Discovery Channel.

    I was not able to take a lot of pictures on Transalpina but I have made a video with my bike and this famous road here:


    I wish you all the best, and I hope to see some of you visiting my country.

    Best regards
