Heaven’s Gate



Wyoming 2020


Limited edition fine art print 1 of 50 – A full day in the Tetons starts with shooting a sunrise at one of its many great locations, searching for wildlife all day, then settling on a favorite location for sunset. I had just finished photographing grizzly bears. The sun was approaching the mountain horizon when a bright light ray peaked between the mountains. I quickly pulled over at Willow Flats and photographed the phenomenon until it disappeared into the night. This sunbeam only lasted for a few moments but while it was here it took my breath away.  Photo © copyright by Derek Nielsen
