About this Image
Ansel Adams made this image around 1948 with a 4" x 5" view camera. The hike up the Mist Trail to Vernal Fall is short, accessible, and heavily trafficked. John Muir, in his book "The Yosemite," described the fall: "The Vernal, about a mile below the Nevada, is 400 feet high, a staid, orderly, graceful, easy-going fall, proper and exact in every movement and gesture …it is a favorite with most visitors, doubtless because it is more accessible than any other, more closely approached and better seen and heard. A good stairway ascends the cliff beside it and the level plateau at the head enables one to saunter safely along the edge of the river as it comes from Emerald Pool and to watch its waters, calmly bending over the brow of the precipice, in a sheet eighty feet wide, changing in color from green to purplish gray and white until dashed on a boulder talus." The Mist Trail is notoriously wet -- standing in the rain can be drier. Adams would have faced challenges keeping his equipment dry while capturing this familiar icon of Yosemite .

"Vernal Fall" appeared "Portfolio IV, What Majestic Word," published by the Sierra Club in 1963 and Classic Images, the book based on the Museum Set Collection, a retrospective portfolio of what Adams considered his strongest work. It has also been published in Yosemite and the Range of Light (out of print), Yosemite , and the Portfolios of Ansel Adams.

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.
