Default Upper Lake Agnes:

An uncommon scene worth sharing. The photograph was taken recently by my son, Jason. We enjoy the photography of Ansel Adams, hence the B&W photo. He ordered a 24"X30" canvas copy, it should make for an interesting wall display.

I took lots of photo classes in college, and studied Adam’s “zone system” for developing film. It’s amazing what cameras can do now. That’s a gorgeous photo.

I've always been a big fan of Ansel Adams' photography. It's always so majestic.

Nobody mentioned the Bighorn skull in the foreground. Pretty neat.

Color would certainly have been distracting to the composition.

Adams magic happened in the darkroom printing and dodging at the enlarger. He was a master at it.

Ah, Adams' famous "Zone System." I spent lots of time in the dark room trying to master than back in my college days. He was indeed a master, Tom.
