Beautiful Nature Photography

I came across a great picture of a deer out there, and I decided that today’s photography post would have the theme of animals. Enjoy 🙂

Ansel Adams Wilderness

Ansel Adams Wilderness, California

I came across a video of some guy hiking the Ansel Adams Wilderness tonight, and I’d have shared it with you but I got scared the footage was too amateur and second guessed myself into not doing it. Instead, let’s have a look at some pictures from around the Ansel Adams Wilderness and learn some history about it. Having seen so many beautiful landscapes all in one short minute, I’ve decided that I must go to see this wilderness area myself. Visiting the US has limited appeal to me, especially with the choice of presidents the poor Americans face this time around. I don’t often think to myself “I must visit the US,” but on this occasion my mind is made up. I really must.

Ansel Adams was an American landscape photographer. I first learned about him when I was trying to get a handle on shooting landscapes. Adams himself was prodigiously skilled at this and his entire catalogue will make your eyes water as you swear never to click a shutter again, such is your unworthiness. It’s a pretty bad feeling to try to learn photography from the best images of the 20th century masters. Anywho, it was Ansel Adams who so impressed on the American public the beauty of American wilderness spaces, and the need to protect those places. Such was his effectiveness as a wilderness advocate that the authorities of the day renamed a national park in his honour.

Chittenden Lake

The Ansel Adams Wilderness is located in Sierra Nevada, California. It’s got everything – lakes, mountains, mountains with lakes on top of them, and even lakes with mountains coming out of them. Glaciers too. It looks like exactly the kind of place where one could entirely forget about sales quotas and mortgage repayments. There are more than five hundred kilometers of hiking trials in the Ansel Adams Wilderness on which you can hike off your earthly worries. Except if you’re worried about bears – there are bears there.

Photography – Off The Grid And Into The Wild

Tonight let’s take a look at the work of a young French photographer named Antoine Bruy. Here we have a selection of photos from his album titled ‘Off The Grid And Into The Wild’, which looks at the lives of Europeans who have abandoned suburbia for a simpler, off grid lifestyle. Mr. Bruy’s shooting talent aside, there are some really interesting solutions for off-grid living that we can see in these photos.

Other places feature solar panels for electricity. Although cobbled together and somewhat ramshackle looking, these buildings clearly serve their purpose as shelters that can offer safety and some comfort in wilderness environments.

This building appears to be either black painted or pitch-coated metal sheets, hammered into a tee pee shape. The chimneys sticking out the top indicate that a wood heater must be employed on the inside.

A trendy looking man in hobo chic enjoys a quiet smoke out in the wilderness. I wonder if he grew his own tobacco? Those boots look pretty expensive though.

From the layout of the items here, I infer that this man is heating his morning bath with a firepit directly under the bathtub. Bathing in a hot tub right in an open field would be a marvelous luxury!

off grid

In the snowy European climes, insulation and warmth is a must. See above that one man has a house made entirely of straw bales. Besides having learned nothing from The Tale Of The Three Little Pigs, this man would clearly enjoy the benefits of straw’s superior insulation. I do hope he’s not prone to falling asleep with lit cigarettes though.

Check out a video where the photographer, Antoine Bruy, talks more about his motivations and inspiration for this photographic series. Do you have dreams of going off grid? What would it take for you to follow your dreams? Tell us in the comments!
