I wouldn't do this crazy if I didn't get a cheap deal - roundtrip LAX-IGU $520 At least the nature just treated me with a very nice sunset. This was from Saturday evening, from…

I shot this image from the shore of Jackson Lake, in Grand Teton National Park, just as a late evening storm had passed at sunset. A long exposure was used to smooth the water and intensify the colorful reflections.
