I learned of this spot from my dad (capturedbythelight.blogspot.com). When he visited me here in Jackson Hole to drop my brother off at Jackson Hole Bible College (www.jhbc.edu), we scouted it out midday and decided it'd be a superb sunrise location. Unfortunately we weren't able to get there for sunrise together while he was here.
Scott (Dean of Students at JHBC) and I have been wanting to do a sunrise shoot for some time now, and the fall colors here in Jackson are about at their peak. You must understand, fall doesn't last very long here. It's a hit-or-miss situation. So we decided to try Hedrick Point on Friday morning.
I also tried setting up meeting Matt Kloskowski (www.mattk.com) to join us since I found out he was in the area this weekend doing some photo shoots. Unfortunately he wasn't able to join us for the shoot since he was with a photo-workshop group that was doing sunrise at another location in the park. But we were able to meet him later that morning to chat a bit and share some of our photos (to give him a taste of what he missed! :)
Here's a time-lapse video I took with my iPhone:

Praise the Lord for His many blessings!

the name of the LORD is to be praised!"
