Working on the last post I remembered that I had another shot of a group of horses that I wanted to share on LATW. Taking the scenic route home from Jackson to Cache Valley via Diamondville last fall ended up taking many more hours than expected. With a lot ground to cover, dramatic sky, fall color and a photographer driving it was anything but quick. After a few stops you just have to stop stopping or it will be midnight before you are home.

Love these Andrew. My favorite is the second, with the horses. I like how the fence leads your eye right to them, giving the scene scale. The frame ratio works really well here too!
Lovely. This is the part of the world I consider home. Perfectly portrayed.
It’s a great part of the world. I need to spend more time up in Wyoming. So much to explore.
I love your photos. They remind me of where I grew up in Colorado. So I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award. For rules, visit http://sbhansenart.com/2014/05/04/liebster-award/
“..you just have to stop stopping..” I funny phrase by that I understand the breathtaking beauty of the landscapes =). I like the first picture for the wilderness but the third for me is the best one: good light, good colors and good composition for this beautiful picture.
That light was really incredible. Thanks for commenting.
Amazing! Really love these photos. I’m an international student studying in a university in OH, and my biggest hope is to travel around the US and see all the beautiful scenery myself. I’ve never been to Wyoming but these photos are so impressive that I really want to take a look at those mountains some day!
My favorite is the third picture. It shows the different colors of the mountain…looks so mysterious!
So beautiful. I miss that land, used to take vacations there. My favorite activity was just parking the truck at some remote ranch or forest road and walking it for a few miles to drink in the sage and the silence.
The silence is amazing.
Oh, hell, yeah. Silence is like oxygen for the soul.
Nice overcast sky with low sunny light
Oh my gosh these are beautiful!! Do you sell prints? My boyfriend went to Wyoming last year and completely fell in love. These would be a perfect anniversary present!
I am planning on having an option for purchasing prints in the next month or so. When it is ready I will announce on the blog. Stay tuned…
In the first picture, I imagine a cow elk and her calf snugly bedded deep in the “quakies” (quaking aspen).
In the second, I imagine the horses parting and walking away at the sight of a bridle.
In the third, the cottonwood tree stands alone in a stream cut beneath the rolling sage–it is a survivor of beavers and lightening storms, clutching drenched ground until at last a mishap ends its tenure.
In the meantime it provides shade to a sleeping coyote, or a perch and nest site to a red-tailed hawk.
There is a depth to Wyoming that doesn’t reveal itself immediately, but only with experience. Go back again when you can–your talent does it justice.
