Details Additional Information
Ansel Adams made this image in approximately 1936 with a 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" Zeiss Jewel view camera. He took the photograph from the east side the fall, setting up his camera on Fern Ledge, a precariously narrow trail exposed to gusting winds and blowing mist from the nearby fall.
In this image, Yosemite Fall dominates the space of the picture. Adams used this visualization motif of filling the photograph with his subject in many images he made during the 1930s, notably " Nevada Fall, Yosemite Valley ." That image was one of ten he selected for the Group f/64 Exhibition at the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum in 1932, alongside photographs by Edward Weston and Imogene Cunningham.
Ansel Adams braved the steep, slippery climb to Yosemite Fall again in 1946 when he made the color image published in Ansel Adams: In Color.
"Yosemite Fall, Profile" appears in Yosemite and the High Sierra and Yosemite and the Range of Light ."
