Details Additional Information
Ansel Adams made this image in 1938 with an 8" x 10” view camera from the Old Sentinel Bridge near the Yosemite Chapel. Though the old bridge was replaced in 2000, the new Sentinel Bridge remains one the best viewpoints in Yosemite Valley and a popular spot for photographers, in large part because of Adams ' photographs from this location.
Ansel Adams made many prints of this image, including a mammoth 38' x 60' mural that hung above the fireplace of Best's Studio in Yosemite Valley for many years. Ansel' father-in-law, the landscape painter Harry Best, opened his studio in 1902 and when he died in 1936, it passed to Adams ' wife Virginia. In 1972, it was renamed The Ansel Adams Gallery.
"Half Dome, Merced River, Winter" appears in Yosemite and the Range of Light (out of print), Yosemite, "Yosemite and the High Sierra" and "Classic Images," the book based on the Museum Set Collection, a retrospective portfolio of what Adams considered his strongest work.

5 of 5 Memories of my Father December 16, 2019
Reviewer: Kenneth Ryan from San Francisco, CA United States  
Every year we would stake out a spot for our Little Caesar Trailer on the Merced in  the Lower River Campground during our Easter vacation.  Dad returned many times over his 79 years with camera in hand chronicling it all.  The early trips were all about us playing in the Valley accessible by car.  As we got older and grew stronger, our exploration went vertical as we walked up the many trails from the valley floor.  As our lives took us in different directions, he continued his trips solo and explored nature both giant and minuscule.   This photo carries me back to these memories.  My heart is warm as I think about our entire family returning to the Valley in August of 2024 to celebrate what would be his 100th birthday.

5 of 5 Exceptional art and excellent service! September 30, 2017
Reviewer: David Lominac from San Dimas, CA United States  
I wanted a special print for a relative's birthday and was running short on time. I knew the print would be appreciated for the fine art it is and its origin. Customer service responded immediately to my inquiries and helped me arrange expedited delivery, always with courtesy and professionalism. The artwork of Adams is amazing!

5 of 5 Birthday present for my boss July 9, 2016
Reviewer: Karyn Mounsey from Lawndale, CA United States  
This particular photograph is a favorite of my boss.  His birthday isn't until July 23 (which is a Saturday).  I am doing my level best to NOT give it to him until Friday, July 22.
