The Tetons and the Snake River / by Ed Shanahan

In 1942 on a commission from the US Government, Ansel Adams made his famous photo of the Snake River and the Grand Tetons, an image considered among the best ever in landscape photography.  This image was taken from the same spot.  Adams had a slightly higher vantage point as he typically photographed from a viewing platform that he built on top of his station wagon.  You can no longer replicate Adam's shot due to the growth of trees that partially obscure the river.  You can see Adams original image at:
