CPCD #8 – Low Hanging Fruit in the Tetons, Wyoming

Too easy

If you’re unsure what a CPCD actually is, read this.

This crappy phone image isn’t from THE Schwabacher Landing in Grand Teton National Park, but it’s certainly close enough (actually, it’s better). Still, it’s easy, unoriginal, trite, unimaginative, and uber-conventional. It didn’t require working the scene very hard nor any extraordinary vision on my part. Some might argue that it required no vision at all, in fact. You could also make the assertion that I didn’t expend any hard work or energy here, that I simply reached for the low hanging fruit. Okay, fair enough. But the low hanging variety can often be just as sweet as the reward waiting at the top of the tree too.

This was captured this morning with my workshop group in the Tetons. It was fun, the light was sublime, and I was honored to share the moment with some awesome photographers with whom I’m spending this week. I really doesn’t get much better.

    It is imaginative. Its a beautiful photo. A beautiful setting. You all worked with what you had at the moment. Who can resist those peaks and the constantly changing light?

    Certainly looks a lot like Schwabacher Landing. Very imaginative shot!! I like it. Maybe you could have borrowed someone else’s camera to put in the picture and used your own to take the picture?? Or showed the other photographers lined up waiting for the perfect shot.

    Getting the safe shot, and THEN getting creative makes a lot of sense when dealing with a workshop group. That way everyone is sure to have something to fall back upon if the creative portion of the trip goes awry.
