Adams, who is famed for his black and white photographs of America's national parks produced a truly breath-taking image here.

There are several shots of this mountain range showing it's reflection in the lake below the range but Adam's takes an entirely different approach to the composition, instead capturing the magnificent cloud formation around the mountains.

Though obscured this approach doesn't subtract from the piece, but rather adds to it.

Allowing the viewer to try and distinguish what is snow-covered mountain and what is cloud.
