Homage

Back in the winter of 1944, Ansel Adams drove to the town of Lone Pine, California in hope of capturing a compelling sunrise photograph of the Sierra. He chanced upon a distant lone horse grazing in a pool of light, backed by the mighty face of the Sierra. It became one of his iconic images.

I’ve been an unabashed fan of Ansel Adams’ photography since I was a child and continue to be inspired by his work. I don’t specifically seek out Adams’ locations to recreate his images but I’m not too proud to take advantage of scenarios that were inspired by him. I always learn something from the experience and credit Adams for the idea. Call this image my performance of an Ansel Adams composition.

In the Winter of 2022, I drove to the town of Lone Pine, California in hope of capturing a compelling sunrise photograph of the Sierra. I chanced upon a small herd of cattle grazing in a pool of light, backed by the mighty face of the Sierra. Call it a “Homage”.
