Bridal Veil Fall, by Ansel Adams

The photograph titled “Bridal Veil Fall” was captured by renowned photographer Ansel Adams. The image features the breathtaking scenery of Yosemite Valley.

In the photograph, Bridal Veil Fall can be seen descending dramatically between steep rock faces, its powerful waters creating a misty veil as they plummet into the valley below. The surrounding cliffs frame the waterfall, enhancing its grandeur. Foreground trees provide a sense of scale and also contrast with the mist and water, adding depth to the composition. Adams’ signature style of strong contrasts, with deep blacks and bright whites, imbues the scene with a sense of timelessness and captures the awe-inspiring power of the natural world.
