Homage to Ansel

Leading lines

Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls

You can't come to Yosemite without thiking about Ansel Adams, probably the greatest landscape photographer there has even been. He made Yosemite his home, and decades later his images still have an enduring quality that would put most modern work to shame, in spite of the facilities aforded by digital editing etc. The Ansel Adams Gallery is located in the village, and I had a great time wandering around looking at the magnificent pictures. I couldn't resist having a go at a couple of black and whites myself, and although they pale in comparison, I'm happy enough with the result.
