SEASONS

June is the time for this classic shot of the south barn in front of the Tetons. The grass is vibrant at this time and makes for a carpet of green. The northern barn is spectacular on an overcast or snowy day.

Very few people shoot the barns in winter, but dare to be be different! You'll have to ski or snowshoe in about a mile from December to February to get the shot. The main access road to Mormon row is closed during this time.

TIMES

Sunrise to mid morning for the classic south barn shot. The sun flames the barn when it finally clears the hills behind you. Shooting the shot before this happens would require a ND filter shaped liked the barn or a composite image.

For the north barn, try sunrise for the standard shot or try shooting from the back at sunset in winter for something different. The above shot was taken with a 30mm focal length on a full frame 35mm camera.
