Skywatch Friday.. skies from the TETONS


I have some neat pictures of clouds hanging around the Teton mountains. In the Teton National park we stayed at Colter Bay and had some gorgeous views of the mountains.

I hope you enjoy the mountains and clouds as much as I do. I should have said fog not clouds.






















As usual to see more wonderful skies from around the world click on my Skywatch Friday link.
Also a big thanks to the team of guys and gals who make  Skywatch happen. I have a great time looking at everyone's photos. Last, thanks in advance to anyone who stops by my blog and check out my Skywatch photos.

Those mountains are really outstanding. So rugged and grand and imposing. And within reach (so your pix make me believe). Those pictures are so beautiful.

These are bautiful, Eileen. The second one is absolutely stunning. I can feel the stillness and breathe in that fresh, clean air just looking at it. I also love the final capture with that unexpected low cloud.

As an inhabitant of the flat Netherlands I always like to see pictures of mountains. Your shots are great in combination with the water.
Enjoy your weekend!

Beautiful pictures. There is nothing like the Tetons. I have not been on the east side in years. I see them way off in the distance on clear days when I visit my Father in Idaho Falls.

Gorgeous scenes! I love the second shot, and I really enjoy the last one too. It looks like the mountains are wearing a scarf of clouds.

Thanks for leaving a comment with me so I could discover your wonderful blog! I like the shots of a "cloud bird" sitting on the mountain top! When you are ready to go to Colorado, I have a B&B in the Heart of the Rockies!

Thanks for visiting my moon shot post this week. I've been out of town and am just now catching up. I love your Tetons shots. When I quit a particularly bad job and was getting ready to start a new one, I took a week off and went camping. My destination was Yellowstone, but I stayed in Tetons National Park for two nights. There was still snow on the ground and it rained the whole time, but I still had fun. Plus it really cleared my mind. - Margy
