fiske-yosemite-313x514It’s 150 years since the signing of The Yosemite Grant Act. Ansel Adams is perhaps best known for photographing the place, but George Fiske was there before. I can’t resist reproducing this photo, as we were just there — not I hasten to add that near to the edge. It is well worth a visit.

The only book of Fiske’s photos which I can find on Amazon is only available 2nd hand. Book Patrol sends this (and other photos).
