"It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment." Ansel Adams,

No discussion of landscape photography would be complete without including the legendary Ansel Adams. As a photographer and conservationist, his black and white landscape photography demonstrates that many different genres can be considered fine art.

Adams' careful compositions and his ability to open up nature, giving viewers a different viewpoint on the landscape, elevate his work. He proved that nature photography could not only have an impact on conservation issues, but could also compete as high art.
