White Pelican in Fog on the Snake River at the Tetons
“White Pelican in Fog on the Snake River at the Tetons”
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Earlier this month I spent 4 days in Jackson, Wyoming exhibiting at the Jackson Hole Art Festival. On my way back to Bozeman, MT I headed out early that day so I could photograph the sunrise at the Oxbow Bend Turnout.
While photographing the sunrise, I noticed this white pelican slowly cruising the Snake River coming towards me. I took the wide angle lens off my camera and put my 150-600mm lens on my camera and tripod and photographed the pelican as it was floating past me.
A light fog in the early morning light gave this a nice moody feel to the photograph.
How the photo was created
As you can see in the above photo I had to make a number of tonal and color corrections to bring the photo to life. I also cropped it into a panorama, getting rid of dead space along the top and bottom.
It was shot at iso 2000 at 1/500s at f/8 at 600mm.
