Tribute to Ansel Adams

I am currently reading the >Photography Series< books from Ansel Adams, the legendary american photographer. I really enjoy his dry writing style ("A view camera favors a far more contemplative approach, partly because it is slower to operate.") and there are many things to learn, both for the future use of my "new" Linhof, but also for photography in general. One of the amazing features of his photographs is his use of the dynamic range of the negative / print: Even deep shadows or bright highlights contain details for the viewer to "discover". To practice what I learned from the books so far and to honour the great Adams, today two pictures taken in the morning in our small garden.
