Yosemite

Ansel Adams images stay in one’s mind long after seeing them, powerful, majestic photographs of expansive subjects in immaculate focus.
It was such a pleasure to actually be in some of those places and appreciate his consummate skill.

Ansel Adams-inspired waterscapes

Having visited an exhibition today of original photographic prints by Ansel Adams, I felt inspired to re-visit some photographs I took in October at Niagra Falls. They were taken with a digital camera, I have now converted them to black and white and increased the contrast considerably. To paraphrase Ansel Adams “the negative is the score and the print is the performance” So in that spirit, these adjusted images are my performance.
