I have often thought when shooting that I need a crane to lift me 10-15 feet in the air, sometimes that would really make a shot. I Guess an RV works too.

Absolutely Fantastic Matt!

Like I said in another thread, I don't care how Iconic or Cliched something is when the photography is that good! Well Done!

The colors and lighting is absolutely perfect! I think a lot of people would be tempted to crop out some of that foreground, but I think it looks perfect the way you composed it.

I also like how the Tetons are somewhat faded in to the background giving them a surreal feeling!

Great shot!

Nice Matt I like how soft the mountains are in the background. Gives a very standard shot a very non standard look.....will be joining you in the D800 club here in the next few weeks.

Hi Roman, I hope your computer is up to date, you'll find the files very cumbersome to non robust systems. Maxing out RAM and swopping out the HD with a top speed SSD flash drive has made a world of difference.

A gorgeous image... the warm colors, reflections and the fog, all make this image so special.
