Unapologetic Rocks

I would never apologize for photographing rocks. Rocks can be very beautiful. But, yes, people have asked why I don’t put people into my pictures of the natural scene. I respond, “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” That usually doesn’t go over at all.

– Ansel Adams

Always empathizing with both the viewer and the scene, Ansel was a remarkable artist, craftsman, professional, and human being. Paying homage to you and wishing you a Happy Birthday.
