Perhaps no one in the last century so epitomized the grand landscape as did Ansel Adams. Big mountains, big sky, pristine wilderness (or so it seemed). While many of his images were made after strenuous hikes, often packing his cameras on mules, many others were made from the side of the road, but it generally appears otherwise to the viewer. We will meet and share images we feel are done in this tradition of the Grand Landscape. Bring or submit up to 3 images. I encourage original prints. I like to think of it as sharing more than a critique, though anyone can offer opinions about any of the work. Color or black and white, digital or original prints are all welcome. I will have this at my house because I would like folks to have the opportunity to sip some wine as I think it encourages camaraderie and discussions. I live in Redmond, and I know that may limit folks who wish to come as well.

I will show an excellent Ansel Adams video for the first hour done by PBS; it features a cameo appearance by a camera that I will also have on display, for those of you who aren’t familiar with large format cameras or are just interested to see it. Popcorn and wine or beer will be served and then we will review our own work. If some of you aren’t interested in the video, just let me know you’ll be arriving an hour late. Please bring some beverages and/or snacks to share.

This is an afternoon meetup, but I do have blinds for the windows, so we can see the screen. There is only room for 10-12 people, so I implore you to be accurate about your RSVP. If five people don’t show up when 20 are expected, it’s not a big deal, but if only 10 are expected and 5 don't show it is a big deal. Please be considerate. Thank you.
