The Landscape Of Mountains

Mountain Photography. If I had to pick a favorite place to photograph it would be a place with majestic mountains. Combine steep, jagged peaks with other landscape elements such as wildflowers, rivers, canyons, meadows and such, then you will have a place I want to be photographing.

Some of the mountain landscapes I have represented here include the soft, rolling mountains of the Northeast with fall colors, the Superstitions of Arizona, Tetons of Wyoming, Cascades of Oregon and Washington, Sierras of California, San Juans of Colorado, not to mention Alaska and the alpine slopes of Norway, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Italy. With luck there will be more to come.

The History of Mountain Photography

Mountain Photography and painting prints are the foundation of Landscapes of the American West

A dramatically-lit black-and-white photograph depicts a large river, which snakes from the bottom right to the center left of the picture. Dark evergreen trees cover the steep left bank of the river, and lighter deciduous trees cover the right. In the top half of the frame, there is a tall mountain range, dark but clearly covered in snow. The sky is overcast in parts, but only partly cloudy in others, and the sun shines through to illuminate the scene and reflect off the river in these places.

The Tetons and the Snake River (1942) Ansel Adams

Romantic landscape artists Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran portrayed the Grand Canyon and Yosemite during the 19th century, followed by photographers Carleton Watkins, Eadweard Muybridge, and George Fiske.[40] Adams's work is distinguished from theirs by his interest in the transient and ephemeral.[35] He photographed at varying times of the day and of the year, capturing the landscape's changing light and atmosphere.[55][126][127] His grand, highly detailed images originated in his interest in the natural environment.[55] His black-and-white photographs were not pure documents, but reflected a sublime experience of nature as a spiritual place.[20] With increasing environmental degradation in the West during the 20th century, his photos show a commitment to conservation.[126]

Art critic John Szarkowski wrote, "Ansel Adams attuned himself more precisely than any photographer before him to a visual understanding of the specific quality of the light that fell on a specific place at a specific moment. For Adams the natural landscape is not a fixed and solid sculpture but an insubstantial image, as transient as the light that continually redefines it. This sensibility to the specificity of light was the motive that forced Adams to develop his legendary photographic technique."[128]

In 1955, Edward Steichen selected Adams's Mount Williamson for the world-touring Museum of Modern Art exhibition The Family of Man,[129] which was seen by nine million visitors. At 10 by 12 feet (3.0 by 3.7 m), his was the largest print in the exhibition, presented floor-to-ceiling in a prominent position as the backdrop to the section "Relationships",[130] as a reminder of the essential reliance of humanity on the soil. However, despite its striking and prominent display, Adams expressed displeasure at the "gross" enlargement and "poor" quality of the print.[131]
