Late fall is a great time to visit the Grand Teton National Park especially when the mountains are covered in snow. During my visit, the bushes along the water's edge at Oxbow Bend were vibrant. I thought they would be the perfect way to frame the snow capped Tetons in the background. The Tetons are majestic no doubt, but when I saw them that day capped in snow and so far away, they looked small and unreachable.
We live in a hectic, fast paced world. It seems like everyone is always pressed for time. A Mary Chapin carpenter song wraps it up perfectly - " ... everybody's got to go, got to be, got to get somewhere." I know this feeling all too well and have consciously made changes in my life to slow down. Slowing down allows us to connect with and see our subjects more clearly.
