The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men

Rarely do I make specific plans on one of my photographic excursions, but this time I did. No, it was not for this picture! I had checked the moon rise to coincide with the opposing sunset overlooking the Western face of the Tetons. Everything was planned perfectly... except, the moon reared it's head right on queue, but some distance North of the Tetons and outside my planned shot.

 

So, I turned my camera towards the sunset and shot Fall River without the Tetons in the background and without the moon. I guess it just goes to show that "The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men" are filled with the planning of man and full of flaws. Guess I'll just go on being a photographer of the opportunities that are presented to me and somehow... I'm just fine with that.
