Clearing Winterstorm by Ansel Adams features a slightly snowy mountain landscape under heavy cloud cover, peppered with trees in the foreground.

In contrast to Adams' more typical approach of using negative space to call attention to the bold black-and-white colour scheme of his photographs, this image is rife with the details of nature’s astounding beauty.

The juxtaposition of the harsh peaks and soft clouds create an ethereal look to the piece that is sure to evoke feelings of inspiration and quiet enlightenment in the viewer.
