Tetons made Famous by Ansel Adams
The Tetons and the Snake River is a black and white photograph taken by Ansel Adams in 1942, at the Grand Teton National Park, in Wyoming. It is one of his best known and most critically acclaimed photographs. Ansel Adams photographed this iconic view of the Teton Range and Snake River from roughly where we have posted several images (similar to the one below) from the Snake River Overlook. Today visitors try to capture this image forgetting that trees have grown and the exact location is not known.

The highlights and shadows in textures, which show up best when it is exposed from an angle by a light source, reveal fine details that make it a more compelling subject for monochrome images. The light from the window creates interesting shadow designs and exposes the brick wall and old rafters.
