Quote for Febraury 2021 - Ansel Adams

The longer I worked in Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada, the more convinced I became that the inclusive landscapes - striking as many undoubtedly are - may not interpret the direct excitement and beauty of the mountain world as incisively as sections, fragments, and close details, which are available in infinite number if the photographer will carefully observe. The danger, of course, lies in becoming repetitive, the photographer must be highly selective.
