An Ansel Adams Snippet
“Sometimes I think I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter!” - Ansel Adams
This is one of those images. When I look at it, I swear I hear Norah Jones singing in my head, "Sunrise, Sunrise, looks like morning in your eyes."
This image is a result of four consecutive mornings spent waiting in the bitter cold for the first rays of the sun. Of this image Ansel Adams said, “I finally encountered the bright, glistening sunrise with light clouds streaming from the southeast and casting swift moving shadows on the meadow and dark rolling hills.”
At just the right moment the horse, turned just perfectly. A small but brilliant detail towards the bottom of the frame. Years later Ansel Adams wrote, “Sometimes I think I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter!” and this images is a fabulous example of just that. Patience, fortitude and technical skill all meet in this fabulous work. Available as a print here.
