High Sierra: The Range of Light by Fred Weyman

Into the Wild

Read High Sierra: The Range of Light Online Free - The Sierra Nevada Mountains, which many consider the most beautiful range in the world, don't easily reveal their treasures, but this photographic compilation, the result of over 30 backpacking trips in the remote high country, reveals the spirit and beauty of a national gem through brilliant images.

Focusing on carefully selected landscapes captured from virtually impossible vantage points, the photographs reflect a genuine Sierra back-country experience. Witness the disappearing edges between water and rocks at Lake Aloha, the scant vegetation peeking out between slabs of smooth granite in Cherry Creek Canyon, and read about the natural processes that led to the creation of waterfalls, glaciers, and lakes.

The painstakingly crafted compositions demonstrate how light can determine the way one sees and remembers a landscape. Musings about the Sierra Nevada by naturalists, mountaineers, and writers, including John Muir, Norman Clyde, Jane Wilson Howarth, and Jack Kerouac, complement the arresting photography.

Another book filled with beautiful photographs this time of the Sierra Mountains. This book has more text then most photo books but the information was well researched and helped me learn and understand this range of Mountains that I knew so little about. I received a copy from netgalley.
