Details Finishing & Additional Information
Ansel Adams made this image with a medium format camera around 1967 in late spring or early summer when heavy snow still swathed the granite peaks of the Cathedral Range south of Tuolomne Meadows. The billowing thunderclouds piled high above the peak are atypical so early in the year and indicate the photograph was taken on an exceptionally hot day when the heat would have created the massive evaporation to form the clouds.
For many years, Adams led photography workshops in Yosemite . Each June, hundreds of students would arrive for the two-week sessions. The workshops often visited the high sierra and Adams may have captured this image during a workshop excursion, using it as an example of visualizing a subject from concept to print.

And now I have seven... February 16, 2011
Reviewer: David Tunnicliffe from England  
Such richness, clarity and vibrance of tonal range is hard to describe.  You have to see it to believe it.  These hand printed and mounted images to the highest standards by Alan Ross from Ansel's original negatives are a joy to own. Beautifully presented, carefully packed for international shipping.
