Classic Ansel Adams photograph, "Unicorn Peak and Thunderclouds" - Yosemite 1967, by Ansel Adams.

Ansel Adams was an American photographer, well known for technical innovations and for his dramatic pictures of Western landscapes. He was a pioneer in the movement to preserve the wilderness and one of the first to promote photography as an art form.
Adams and Fred Archer developed the Zone System as a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photographs. He primarily used large-format cameras because their high resolution helped ensure sharpness in his images.
