Some of my favorite pictures of the Tetons.

Here are my favorite Images of the Tetons and also where to go for the best Teton pictures and the best times to take them. These are the places where, over the last forty years, I have taken my best Teton pictures.  Some of the places have changed a bit, but they are all still great spots for photographing in Teton National Park.

8322, This picture was taken at Schwabackers Landing. Walk upstream , North, from the usual picture spot about 1/4 to 1/2 mile. There are lots of shots in this area.  My wife Joan took this picture 10 or 15 years ago and it is still one of my favorites of the Tetons.  It brings back a lot of good memories of taking pictures on a beautiful, cold, snowy day in one of my favorite places in the world.
