Oh Ansel Adams

Sathish (you may know him as Satoshphere on Flickr), has long been a friend of ours. While browsing around for the Photo of the Day in the group pool I saw one of his photos and realized I hadn’t heard from him in a while so I headed over to his photo stream to see what he’d been up to. I was amazed. Such beautiful photos. Patagonia, Glacier National Park, White Sands, Alaska…oh my! I had to use one of his photos for today’s Photo of the Day.

Browsing around I settled on this one of the Ansel Adams Wilderness just outside Yosemite. Sure, it’s a couple of years old but it’s awesome and I don’t post nearly enough photos of the back country for Photo of the Day. Here’s Sathish’s commentary:

“This was one of my very first backpacks in the Eastern Sierras, and every view along the trail just spellbound me, but perhaps one view that did take my breath away was when I first crested a small hill and Mt Ritter and Mt Banner came into first view.
What lay in front of me was the tail end of the beautiful Thousand Island Lake and the amazing granite peaks of the Sierra range rising in front of me! All with a nice trail wandering through a green meadow lined with a choice smattering of wildflowers.

Shot this image at ISO 200, F11 for 1/100s, with a nice wide angle lens.”

Take some time, go see Sathish’s other photos. It’s Sunday and you have nothing better to do on this 3 day weekend right?

Great shot, Sathish. Glad to see you’re still out there with your camera.
