Gates of the Valley, Spring (Sepia)
December, 2011

I was on my way out of Yosemite Valley following a few days of shooting when this early spring scene at a much photographed site presented itself to me. Even though the tourist tram actually makes stops here to allow visitors to take pictures, light and weather conditions eventually conspired against me so that I could no longer resist committing this iconic view of the Valley to film. Although I had revisited the proof from time to time throughout the years, I withstood persistent urges to make a fine print of the negative, as I felt that it was too much of a tourist shot. That changed when I happened upon a photograph of the scene by a well known contemporary black and white photographer that convinced me to make a fine art print of my own. I now consider this to be one of my finest prints.


This is a unique, one-of-a-kind, sepia toned print
