A bad day for photography ended on the best so far

It was a cloudy day today. Not the best for photographic exploration. No matter what I loaded my car with all my photo gear, food, water, ready for anything. I drove away from the main road, took the national forest roads outside the national park and I really enjoyed driving my Xterra. All my doubts about having the wrong car are gone now, there are some areas I found that no regular SUV would have got to. I found some interesting textures inside the forest and great views of the Tetons from not usual angels.

I drove south with the intention of making it to Jackson Hole but instead I stayed most the time at a very special place for me. In 1942 Ansel Adams took a picture of the Snake river that has always captivated me. I found that place and stayed taking a few shots, and every time I was ready to go the view had changed with different light and different clouds in the sky. I really enjoyed taking picture after picture, for more than one hour. Some people would say: why to take a picture somebody else has already taken? My answer is very simple, why to play basketball if you will never play as good as Jordan? I am not trying to beat Ansel, I know I can only get a little closer to him, but I will never reached the level of dedication he put into his art.
