Great Black & White Landscape Photographs by Ansel Adams

Anybody serious about their photography has already heard of Ansel Adams, and probably seen at least some of his work. Ansel Adams was an American photographer and environmentalist best known for his black-and-white landscape photographs of the American West, especially Yosemite National Park. Adams primarily used large-format cameras despite their size, weight, setup time, and film cost, because their high resolution helped ensure sharpness in his images.
