Striking photos of water in all its forms, from cascading waterfalls and gushing rapids to mirror-like pools and ethereal landscapes of ice and snow.

California-born Ansel Adams (1902–1984) is one of the most celebrated practitioners of 20th-century landscape photography. His black-and-white images of the American West and Southwest, in particular Yosemite Valley, transformed national parkland into a vertiginous and romantic wilderness.
