I photographed this grassy reflection after capturing the Schwabacher’s Landing sunrise photograph that I posted yesterday. I was so impressed by the brightness of the grass and the stillness of the pond that I decided to photograph this close-up view. Grand Teton National Park is home to over one hundred different species of grasses. Grasses are present in every community in the park from wetlands, to sagebrush flats, to forests, to the alpine zone. Wherever they grow, grasses are an integral element of the ecological tapestry and are the chief food source for much of the native wildlife: bison, elk, marmots and many insect species.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 7D Mark II using my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 II Lens set on 400mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/5.6, shutter speed at 1/1000th of a second and the ISO set at 400. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and finalized in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
