Digital Killed the Photography Star: A photograph that is a photograph of photographers photographing the most photographed barn in America.


"This was the scene when I arrived at Moulton Barn near Grand Teton National Park a couple of weeks ago. The time was approximately 6:45 a.m. and there were 18 photographers all lining up basically the same shot.

"It is relatively easy to see why this particular barn is the most photographed barn in America. It has character, a great setting and a world class backdrop. It is also only 15 miles north of Jackson Hole, Wyoming (which has major air service from all the big cities) and has shown up on photographer's "must visit" lists for years.

"And if you are headed out to the area, it is just off Antelope Flats Road about four miles north of Moose Junction." --  (by Jeff Clow)

Well, actually, it isn't the scene Jeff Clow saw there several weeks ago, nor would he see today. According to my numerous sources on the ground in Jackson Hole, it's been snowing most of May and now it's raining and flooding. The Tetons are covered in snow. If you notice there's no white in that photo. What you've posted is a late August/early September scene....

Good try though.

"This photo was taken on August 28, 2006 using a Nikon D70." Timeless.. and timely... I have to say, I am addicted to digital photography and especially digital photography editing and I'm shamelessly amateur. Will try my hand at digital video editing ASAP, as I've seen some amazing homemade video work done with basic programs. Gives a new twist to the old classic "home videos", that is for sure. Artistically fulfilling and practically versitile (and forgiving via the "undo" option. I admit, my generation is spoiled and my kids' gen will be even more spoiled with the instant gratification digital offers.
