Grand Teton Blast

Just returned from another great workshop in the Grand Tetons. What a blast and what a great group of photo enthusiasts! The babies were out and in abundance for some critters.
The first day was a little slow for wildlife but then Doug showed up and we got in the rhythm.
Jerry and Tom had a double event as it was a 20 year reunion for these Air Force buddies. Paul was enthused making images of reflections, dead pine needles, and wildflowers while the rest of us concentrated our long lenses on the animals. We worked hard and at the end of the workshop we all needed a vacation! It was worth it, we returned with great images, lasting memories, and new friends.

I’m looking forward to seeing their images and to our Fall workshop.

    Thanks Jim…had a great time and happy we got in the rhythm. I must say your shots put mine to shame, but I do like my “marmot masterpiece.” Hope to see you this Fall.

    Jim and Kathy….thanks for a great workshop. I love your shots. I sitll have to sort through mine, but will forward a few once I get through them. I look forward to seeing you both again on another In the Rythm tour!

    Thanks Doug, remember, I’ve been doing it a lot longer. You’ll get there, I know you are using your camera every day.

    Thanks Tom, I still have to edit more, too. I wish I practiced what I preach but it is too much fun to just pick a few good ones and get them posted. See you soon…

    Jim and Kathy,
    It was a great event and I appreciate all the special training I got on the D-4. I believe it will increase my abilities to photo the eagles of Coeur d’ Alene, ID.

    Slowly moving through all the images. Have been way too busy. I enjoyed your professionalism and the great companionship with the other members.

    Hope top do it again. The last two days of the trip with my brother-in-law in the Hayden and Lamar Valleys of Yellowstone proved most successful, baggesd two bears; one black, up close and a mama grizz with three cubs at about 3 / 4 of a mile. Also bagged two awesome male bull elk. Finally we hiked down to the brink of the lower falls and have great memories.

    Back to work, best wishes to you all and my foemr USAF buddy Tom on his grand adventure forthcoming to Africa!

    Thanks Jim,
    It was a great workshop, professionally done and at which I learned lots. And I love your images. Hopefully, I caught more than pine needles, but I’ll see when I finally get to work with them. Wonderful group of guys with lots of fun interaction. Hope Tom is “primed” for wildlife on his African adventure.
    Best,
    Paul

    I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all
    website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will be much more useful than ever before.
