About this Image
Adams wrote "I made this photograph while on the annual (Sierra) Club outing in the Kaweah and Kern River watersheds, in many ways the most spectacular region of the Sierra. On the long trek from Giant Precipice Lake ...The lake was partially frozen and snowbanks rested in the recesses of the cliffs. I was impressed with the solemn beauty of the scene and saw the image quite clearly in my mind...

"Many speak of this image as abstract, but I was not conscious of any such definition at the time... For photographic compositions I think in terms of creating configuration out of chaos, rather than following any conventional rules of composition. Edward Weston said simply that 'composition is the strongest way of seeing.'"

According to Adams, a friend made a photograph from exactly the same location at the same time. Later, on seeing Adams' finished photograph, he exclaimed, "Jeez, Why didn't I see that!"

Each Modern Replica is individually produced and inspected, and matched to a master proof. It is dry-mounted on smaller sizes to an acid-free backer and overmatted with 8-ply museum rag board. The image and paper is estimated to resist fading or deterioration for over 180 years. The overmat, custom selected and cut to the image, has a generous border to create a powerful effect. Framing options have been carefully selected by our experienced staff to make the most beautiful presentation possible.
