Travel Photo Thursday | Highway 89

It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in this event, so I wanted to come back with a bang.  This amazing shot was taken during a drive along Highway 89 in Jackson Hole, WY.  There are times when you are so glad to be alive just to witness pure unspoiled beauty such as this.

The air was fresh not a whiff of smog to be found and the temperature was warm but never muggy.   If I was asked to describe this scene in one word…..it would be “Redemptive”.  It’s like a new beginning to yesterday’s woes; a promise of a better day.

With the Grand Tetons seemingly holding up the sky and embracing the rolling fields of color, we had to take a moment to exit our car and absorb this phenomenal view.

    Lovely shots Renee, sometimes when I am driving and see a beautiful sunset, I too would stop and photograph it. A couple of days ago, I was driving back from the airport and stopped by the highway to photograph planes taking off. I did that for about an hour before making my way back.

    Great picture of a breathtaking scenery! I’d call it ‘renata’ or rebirth.

    Some beautiful photographs for sure…it actually looks a lot like our countryside here in Idaho. Where are you located? I love getting out and taking in the amazing scenery that nature offers us, it is very inspiring and does wonders for the soul.

    This is one of those moments where having a camera with you is priceless, what a wonderful set of photographs. Just out of interest what camera did you use to take these with?

      Agreed! Adam, I am racking my brain here. When we pulled off on the side of the road, we both started clicking…..I used the canon 10mp powershot and my daughter used a canon, but she’s way more advanced than me…so much so that I can’t tell you which model it was….I do remember it cost 399.00. LOL….see I’m such a stickler when it comes to details…ha! I definitely took the first pic, because I was hoping that the truck would get out of my shot….the second….I’m not as sure about that one.

    There’s no place like home, especially if you are looking out at that every morning. For those who look out our window and see nothing but the neighbor’s trash, we are very envious. How nice is it to live in a place that people pay money to vacation in? I always wondered if the people who live there ever get bored, but I can imagine looking out at that scene can never get old. Thanks for giving us a piece of eye candy, it is definitely on my places of where I would like to go. I appreciate the eye view into the beauty that an be found all around you.
