Snake River Overlook - Grand Tetons National Park

I hit up this spot a few different times on my trip to the Tetons. Unfortunately I kept failing to get my shot from here. On this particular morning, I sat in the parking lot for about 2 hours through a downpour in hopes that it would clear while dawn's light was still at it's best. But finally, with no breaks in the clouds and a growling belly, I headed back to Jackson Hole to pick up my wife from the hotel. I got near the airport and realized it had quit raining and light was starting break through the clouds. Being my last day here and my only chance to get my shot I immediately made a u turn and headed back to the famous overlook, hopped the wall and headed for my previously scouted spot. While the color version of this still lacked those vivid sunrise colors I had hoped for but I am rather pleased with this B&W version. Any comments or criticisms are much appreciated!!!
