I captured this photograph of Jenny Lake while visiting the Grand Teton National Park last September. The group I was with stopped at the Jenny Lake Overlook area to photograph the lake and surrounding landscape. I found this nicely framed scene and decided to photograph it.
Jenny Lake was formed approximately 12,000 years ago by glaciers. The lake is estimated to be 423 feet deep and encompasses almost 1,200 acres. It is a major focal point of the park with many hiking trails, scenic boat rides and access to major climbing routes to the tallest peaks of the Teton Range. I highly recommend stopping at the lake. Its peaceful surroundings are wonderful.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 16mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/18, shutter speed at 1/30th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability. This is a single image processed in Lightroom then finalized in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
