Grand Tetons National Park

Ansel Adams version is way better because he catches the mountain view and this helps makes the photo into a complete composition. the S shape river stream cuts into the photo makes you wonder where is it going.

Crouton Point Park pathway

In this photograph, I took this photo while I was mountain bike riding and i though the S shape road was interesting. It’s a great way to look at something and wonder how far does this road take?


Crouton point park “Lazy River”

This is my opposite Version of the Ansel Adams “Schoodic Point” I was trying to get a more relax side and show a more calm peaceful river. I got a sun good sun reflection in the water and this is something you want to dip your feet in…:)

                          The Atlantic, Schoodic Point

This photograph is very interesting because it makes you wonder where the end  of the river goes. Like the way the shadows hide under the rock. It gives it a mysterious feeling. The water looks rough and intense. I can dip my foot in this.

Weeping Willow Tree

The Weeping Willow Tree is classic. This tree is recognizable especially seeing this in Pocahontas. It was her ancestor who reincarnates into a weeping willow tree and she played a wise character. So, every time I look at this tree it gives this wisdom and comfort. It very interesting to see how it forms and hangs cause they grow differently. This tree I can defiantly sleep under all day.

Jeffrey Pine

This tree  form sort of reminds me of the Weeping willow especially the way it hangs and lean like that. I love how the shadow is cast on the rock. Very nice. I can sleep under this tree too.

Mount Williamson, The Sierra Nevada, from Manzanar, California, 1945

The size of the rocks a perfect and the he was able to catch the sunlight hitting the rocks make look very spiritual.

Crouton point park Rocks and Seaweeds

What attracted me was the color and the sizes. I like how this looked arranged and set to show these specific details. The seaweed made this photo pop out a lot.

Road after Rain, Northern California, 1960

Crouton point park Bridge

I like the never ending round. This style or angle makes you want to know more about the photo. I like the shadows that makes the bridge pathway very small. The end of the bring you can see in the distance make you feel like you are standing there.

Lower Yosemite Fall

This is a very big waterfall compare to one I took. Ansel Adams capture beauty of something so massive. it’s amazing!

Mini Falls

This is a small version of the waters that I took and its was too cute. I went to go put my hands under it and it was freezing. It was a nice peaceful sound coming from the side of this hill and I was shocked to see a mini water fall.

Oak Tree Sunrise

The focal point of the this photograph was the tree and nothing else. The sun in the back creating the shadow was amazing. Ansel Adams is great at getting a good focal. sometimes it one and sometimes it more. He always know how to draw your attention to what exactly he wants to get.

Central Park Tree

I took this photo of the tree because as I was standing in front of it, The angle seemed was perfect. I like I how its right in the middle.

Ansel Adams. Leaf, Glacier Bay National Monument, Alaska, 1948.

This photo gave me a better understanding on close up photographs. I can now care more on up  close photos. The glacier leaf reminds me of Christmas.

Green leaves

The color just got me. I took this photo because it was green. I am not sure what plant this was but, it was in central and they were all around.

Mountain Scape

I took this photo on the bridge and it was pretty high up. It was very calm and open. At first i did think the angel was right when i took this, but i got use to it and just to it. this view was very beautiful.

Mt. Moran Grand Tenton

This Black and white photo is very dramatic becuase the greys are dark and the blacks are black and the whites are white.

The Sun is going down.

Crouton point Park

This photo was taking in a very beautiful Park and the Scenery was breath taking. Like wanted to get the same feeling Ansel Adams wanted to bring in his Photos. The makes it very interesting.


Ansel Adams, Lake MacDonald, Glacier National Park 1942

The Feeling I get from the photo is very calm environment nature at it best. I feel that he must have been on a boat to take this shot . I like how the water riffles move as he took this picture.
