This image has been stored away for a couple of years and has not been seen until recently.  It is not uncommon for me to wait so long to retrieve an image and print it when I get motivated.  The scene has been photographed by many, including Ansel Adams, as there is a parking lot right off the highway that makes for easy access.  Contemporary photographers, however, cannot get the same scene that Ansel viewed in 1942.   The foreground trees now obstruct the view of the river that still runs through the scene from center to right foreground at the bottom.

My printed photographs, Snake River and Moulton Barn, were selected for exhibition at the Yeiser Art Center from June 7th until July 26th of this year.  The prints were selected at the Paducah Photo 2014 juried competition juried by Mary Ann Redding. She is the Chair of the Photography Department at the Santa Fe University of Art & Design. Prior to that she was the Curator of Photography at the New Mexico History Museum/Palace of the Governors.

Moulton Barn is another popular spot for photography in the Grand Teton National Park.  It is probably easy to find, but is a little off the beaten pathways in the park.  It took me a little while to find the spot because I had perhaps misinterpreted the directions given by a local resident.  There are two barns in this area, but only one is correctly called Moulton Barn.  There are several buildings in the vicinity that are all part of a historic community established by the Mormons and designated as Mormon Row.

Here is a cell phone image from my bedroom window in Carson City, Nevada.  The deer are seen almost everyday as they pass through the yard.  There are also cottontail rabits that stop by and munch on the grass.  This morning a bear visited my garbage can although I did not see him.  Finnegan (my dog) awoke at five thirty in the morning to declare he needed to go outside.  It seems that he was aware of something rumaging around.
