During a recent trip to the see the magnificent Grand Tetons, I decided to do something I seldom remember to do. Unfortunately, I have a strong tendency to try to include too much in my landscape images and this trip was no different. I decided to change that and take advantage of the incredible views in Grand Teton National Park.
For the typical trip, I try to bring only what I really think I’m going to need to shoot the subjects I’m interested in seeing. Changing to a mirrorless system has been a blessing as far as weight savings as I hike in the mountains. For this trip though, I decided to add the heavy Fujinon XF 100-400mm zoom lens and 1.4x teleconverter to my backpack for the sole purpose of shooting wildlife images. However, I was so taken by the size of the Grand Tetons that I got the big lens out for some more intimate views of the Tetons and their peaks.
These three images are some my favorites from the trip. I think the XF 100-400 zoom lens performs very well handheld in the right lighting and I was impressed with the detail in the images even with the 1.4x teleconverter attached. All of these images were shot with the Fuji X-T2. They were processed in Lightroom and converted to black and white with Tonality CK.
