Barbara, I like the inclusion of the fence as a compositional element. It's different as most image are shot from the fence or inside the fence line. Also it looks like you didn't have to work around other photographer's...Nicely done.

@Mike: Thanks, Mike. The other photographers were there early, but when I returned in the afternoon I had it to myself a few minutes. I know it's not the best time of day, but I liked the shadows, and the afternoon clouds. Congrats on the workshops in 2012.

The fence is a part, to many would leave out but here it's a part of what once was; nice but it looks soooooo cold!

@J.R.: I tried some with and without the fence, but I liked it. It is probably really cold there now, but at the time of this photo it was a perfect summer day.

@Florence: It does look a little like some parts of the Alps, but on a smaller scale.

Our favorite place in the entire area ... and it's a long story about how we found Mormon Row.
Let me just say this is a magnificent image of this infamous barn and I offer you five *****s.

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thanks, Judy. It's one of our favorite places too. Now I want to hear the story of how you found it.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

Okay, you asked. ;D ... We were on our return drive from AK back to FL when we came through this area. Our dtr, s-i-l, and g-dtr flew into Jackson and rented an RV. In the visitor's center, Mike fell in love w/the barns on Mormon Drive and w/o his knowledge, Susan asked directions so we could 'end up there'. The drive in was awesome and then Mike saw why Susan had us follow them. Such a gorgeous valley! ♥

@Judy aka L@dybug: Cool story. What a nice surprise for Mike. Who wouldn't enjoy a surprise like that?! It is a gorgeous valley. In younger days we backpacked in the Tetons - Alaska Basin, Death Canyon, Paintbrush Divide, etc, and never "wasted" our time out on the valley away from the mountains. Now that we no longer backpack, we love poking around on Mormon Row.

I like the shadowy foreground because it is a romantic introduction to the awesome background! It is a very beautiful shot, Barbara! I love this!
