I captured this image of Jackson Lake and the Grand Teton Mountain Range from Signal Mountain during my recent trip to the Grand Teton National Park. In the background are Eagle Nest Peak (center, covered with clouds) and Mount Moran (left). In the foreground is Jackson Lake.
Jackson Lake is located within the Grand Teton National Park. This natural lake was enlarged in 1911 by the construction of the Jackson Lake Dam. The lake is the remnant of large glacial gouging from the neighboring Teton Range. The lake is primarily fed by the Snake River which flows from the north and empties into the lake. At an elevation of 6,772 feet, the lake is one of the largest high altitude lakes in the US.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 35 mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/4.5, shutter speed at 1/2500th of a second and the ISO set at 400. This is a series of three bracketed images (-1, 0, +1) brought together using Lightroom. I finalized the image using Nik Color Efex Pro.
