A selection of work from Photographers – worth taking a look at ! The first chapter of my legends-post without a doubt goes to Ansel Adams.

(www.anseladams.com)
Not only did his vision help to preserve many acres of wildlife and scenic areas – he also was drawn to the beauty of the earth and was determined to share these beautiful places with everyone. Thanks to his endless patience and skills, we can still view these today. Yosemite NP was a very big inspirational point for Adams. He spent a lot of his time during different seasons in Yosemite capturing all the stunning landscapes. His dramatic black and white pictures of the park, show it barely has changed since then. A project he worked very hard on. The was a visionairy, a conservationist and a teacher. One of my favorite pictures is the first one – The Golden Gate, before the Bridge. A classic look into the past.
