Details 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.
" Unicorn Peak , Thunderclouds" appears in Yosemite .

Reviewer: arn johnson from Batavia, IL United States  
I sent an email to you right after receipt. I was dissapointed because there is a small reflective speck between glass and print -probably a small chip of glass - THE ANSEL ADAMS GALLERY, we are so sorry to hear this. We are contacting you to offer a replacement or make another arrangement. We truly want you to be overjoyed with your purchase of an Ansel Adams Yosemite Special Edition Photograph.

4 of 5 Thanks December 26, 2017
Reviewer: Andy Wright from Springfield, MO United States  
I spotted this photo on line as something I would like to own, and my wife tried to give it to me for Christmas.  She is not very good on a computer, so she tried to order it by telephone at a telephone number I found for her on your website; but gave up because it just didn't seem to work for her.  I ended up ordering it myself via the website.  You might want to make it easier for those who are not internet savvy to order from you, there are still people who don't want to ( or are not skilled or confident enough to ) order on line.  The product and service once the order was complete were great.

5 of 5 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.
