Details Finishing & Additional Information
 
Ansel Adams made this image around 1952 with an 8" x 10" view camera. El Capitan is the largest exposed granite face in the world, drawing climbers from around the globe. Thanks to Adams' work, it's also a magnet for photographers and this image has long been a favorite of the Adams family.
During his career, he took many images of El Capitan's dramatic face, notably one of his first known photographs taken in 1916 on his first trip to Yosemite . Using a Kodak #1 Box Brownie, he offered an early hint at the visualization that would later become his hallmark, framing the pale granite face with leafy trees in the foreground to downplay the overwhelming size of El Capitan.
After that early photograph, Ansel Adams returned to El Capitan over and again photographing it in every time, season, and light he could. This version appears in Yosemite .

As good as expected June 23, 2016
Reviewer: Juha Hakkinen from Tampere, Pirkanmaa Finland  
I ordered the El Capitan from the AA Gallery. The frame is beautiful and the print itself is has great tonality and detail. Reproductions in books or on screen simply don't do justice to these photographs and I'm glad to own one of them.
