Ansel Adams & The Range of Light

“The Sierra Nevada, so aptly called the “Range of Light” by John Muir, rises as a great wave of stone between the arid wastes of the Great Basin and the verdant Central Valley of California. In the billowing western slopes are many valleys and canyons, carved first by the forces of water and then configured by great rivers of ice during several glacial ages… The juxtaposition of rock, glacial lakes, meadows, forest and streams is extraordinarily. It is the detail of the Sierra that captures the eye…” Ansel Adams
