Details Finishing & Additional Information
Ansel Adams made this image in 1948 using an 8" x 10" view camera. This towering oak at the western fringe of El Capitan Meadow was among his favorite subjects. Since Adams first photographed the tree, age has taken its toll and it succumbed to fire in recent years. However, the towering cliffs between Bridal Veil Fall and Cathedral Spires that lurk in the mists behind the oak in this photograph remain as solid as ever. The Sierra Club published "Oak Tree, Snowstorm" in 1948, along with 11 other photographs by Ansel Adams, in "Portfolio I." Later, Adams selected it for his Museum Set Collection, a retrospective portfolio of what he considered his strongest work, and it appeared in "Classic Images," the book based on the Museum Set. The image is one of Adams' icons, and has also been published in Ansel Adams Monograph (out of print), the Portfolios of Ansel Adams, Yosemite and the High Sierra, and Yosemite.

Oak tree,snowstorm September 15, 2016
Reviewer: Christopher Korvin from Vancouver, BC Canada  
Very slight disappointment. Only very slight.This is a very extraordinary thing to say, but I have a photo of 3 trees in a snowstorm (well, not exactly a storm,but it was still snowing) and I like it rather better !!   I offered it for sale at a local gallery for $50 but no-one wanted it,so it stands framed in my living room.It captures the soft gentle light of snow on trees.Ansel`s picture is by comparison perhaps a little harsh.But no complaints. I am glad to have it.Its just that I wish I had chosen a different one,for my third choice.

In the park December 17, 2015
Reviewer: Steve Simon from Redondo Beach, CA United States  
Everyone in the Park store has been amazing.  I ordered both my prints online and when I had questions or concerns as I go to the park every year, they are more then helpful.  I had my other print the Vernal Falls, and it seemed to have yellowed, so when I sent it back Wendy and the rest went beyond to help me make it work.

Lovely to own one! November 6, 2014
Reviewer: Christopher Sutton from New Zealand  
I purchased this as an anniversary gift for my wife as photography is something we've done together as a hobby for years, so it's a fitting gift for a first year wedding anniversary.
It's great to know that these prints are made via the darkroom; especially since it's an Ansel Adams photo it makes it much more unique and special to have it traditionally printed.

The quality of the print is spectacular (although a little greyish in the whites compared to online preview but still beautiful to look at).
The shipping was very fast! Well packaged and well received!

It's quite cool how the print is not overlaid by the matte, it really just makes it stand out to say "this is a one of a kind".
Framing option was worth it.

The only part I didn't like about shopping at the online gallery was having to choose which print I wanted...I may have to start collecting (one for every anniversary?)

Best Christmas Present Ever January 10, 2012
Reviewer: Andrea from Boise, ID  
I have collected Ansel Adams photographs for years, they are all over my house. My husband gave me this as a Christmas gift and I absolutely love it. The simple beauty of a snow covered tree is breath taking to me. I am excited to begin collecting all the special edition photographs as the quality and beauty makes them a must have.
