I was hoping to duplicate a picture I took with my old camera and was disappointed, it just wouldn’t work – dust on the water and the light too harsh. Not wanting to waste the trip I looked for something different and there it was – a wonderful knobbly old tree bathed in golden light.
Words to Walk With:
From Ansel Adam’s introduction to his book of spectacular black and white photographs Yosemite and the Range of Light.
“Seeing these photos together brought back the exhilaration of my youth, striding through high places with a heavy camera, absorbing the beauty of both lichen and distant peak, the sound of wind and water, and the ever-present benediction of light.”
