Mt Williamson From Manzanar

Mt Williamson From Manzanar

2021-04 Trip Photo Notes B&W 1

After coming down from the Bristlecone Forest, we stopped in at Manzanar so that I could get a photo of Mt WIlliamson and the clouds. Manzanar was one of the Japanese Internment Camps during World War II and I had visited a couple times before. The photo was taken by the cemetery, which sits in the back of the camp area.

Ansel Adams took one of his most famous photos of Mt Williamson from Manzanar during his documentation of the camp during the war. His location was slightly different than mine, he had a boulder field in the foreground. I liked the way the cloud line followed the line of the ridge and summit.
