This was one of the first images I made on the first evening of shooting in the Tetons. It was pretty cloudy that evening but for a very brief moment an opening in the clouds allowed one lone tree in the distance to become silhouetted. The "spotlight" then proceeded up the mountain over the next couple of moments. I didn't have very much time to plan the shot, just compose quickly and fire off a few frames before the light moved.

Technical: Canon 1Ds3, 70-200 f/2.8 IS II @ 75mm, f/5, 1/250s, ISO 100.

This is just a killer shot, right place (and angle) at the right time. My angle was just a bit off and the light just missed the tree. Great image!

Thanks Edward. It has been suggested that I should crop a bit off the left, I am going to try that shortly.
