Jackson Lake at the Tetons

Jackson Lake is in Grand Teton National Park in northwestern Wyoming. This natural lake was enlarged by the construction of the Jackson Lake Dam, which was originally built in 1911, enlarged in 1916 and rebuilt by 1989.

Teton Landscape

The Tetons are one of the youngest mountain ranges in North America. They have been uplifting for less than 10 million years, making them “adolescent” mountains, as compared to the “middle-aged” Rockies (50-80 million years old) or the “elderly” Appalachians (more than 300 million years old).

Most of the lakes in the park were formed by glaciers and the largest of these lakes are located at the base of the Teton Range

Reflections – Monet-like

Reflection photography, also referred to as mirror photography, is when you use reflective surfaces to create an artistic echo of a scene. Here are reflections of trees on a lake creating a Monet-like painting effect. The red kayak adds to the scene.

Lake Windermere

The Lake District, also known as the Lakes or Lakeland, is a mountainous region in North West England. A popular holiday destination, it is famous for its lakes, forests and mountains (or fells), and its associations with William Wordsworth and other Lake Poets and also with Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin.

Windermere lake, at 10.5 miles long, one mile wide and 220 feet deep, is the largest natural lake in both the Lake District and in England, and is fed by numerous rivers. The long thin lake itself forms the central spine of the Windermere lake area of the Lake District.
