It was a beautiful clear sunrise at the Snake River Overlook in Grand Teton National Park. But you pay the price for the high pressure system over the area...the temperature was -9 degrees F (-23 C)!

    I am really thinking good thoughts for your workshops to turn out to be a huge success. I am also really curious to see how it goes... maybe you might need a guest instructor if you get really busy? ;-))))

    In any case, this is one of the better Snake Overlook images I've seen in some time (for me) on flickr. There is that freshness that seems to only accompany extreme cold such as you describe. So in my opinion, most certainly worth it for this shot, well done!

    Wow, the light on the Tetons is just absolutely stunning! Love the golden glow of the Snake River, and the beautiful pinks in the sky. Outstanding capture.
