Details Additional Information
Ansel Adams made this image with a 5" x 7" view camera in 1938, the year
he trekked through the high sierra with Edward Weston. Depending upon
the year, dogwoods typically peak during April or May in Yosemite ,
evoking bursts of starlight against the bare forest backdrop. This
dramatic contrast prompted Adams to compose one of his only still-life
images. To capture the 12 blossoms in this spectacular spray of
dogwoods, he placed them atop a nearby rock covered with pine needles
and lichen.

The Sierra Club published "Dogwood Blossoms" in 1960 after Ansel Adams
selected it, along with 15 other images, for inclusion in "Portfolio
III, Yosemite Valley ." Later, Adams selected it for his Museum Set
Collection, a retrospective portfolio of what he considered his
strongest work. The image has been published in Classic Images , the
book based on the Museum Set, Yosemite and the Range of Light (out of
print) , Yosemite, The Portfolios of Ansel Adams, Yosemite and the High
Sierra, and Ansel Adams Monograph (out of print)

Dogwood Blossom Special Edition Print September 4, 2018
Reviewer: Julie from Poole, Dorset United Kingdom  
This print is absolutely fabulous!  It is stunning.  It is something I have always wanted and I wasn't disappointed when I unpacked it.  The sales service, packaging, shipping to the UK and delivery were all excellent.  I would highly recommend.

Amazing - Deep - Perfect May 9, 2017
Reviewer: Kenzo from CA United States  
I ordered both the special Yosemite photos and the modern replica that had been scanned and there is no comparison. Nothing beats the look of the original process and the  depth of 'color'.

Lovely print but.. October 26, 2016
Reviewer: Craig from San Diego, CA  
Amazing image, the composition of the flowers against the dark background and the sharpness of the image will draw you in to look at every inch of the image but the flowers appear to have an overall uniform gray color. In the online image there is a range of shades from a brighter wight to a mid color gray but the image on my wall does not have the eye-catching white tone to any of the flowers.
My next purchase will probably be El Capitan, Winter.
