The Range of Light
Fred Weyman
• Landscape photographs of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains
• Covers the high-altitude range from Lake Tahoe to Sequoia National Park
• The Sierra Nevada Mountains are believed by many to be the most
beautiful in the world
The Sierra Nevada Mountains don’t easily reveal their treasures, but this
photographic collection, the result of over 30 backpacking trips in the
remote high country, reveals the spirit and beauty of a national gem through
brilliant images. Focusing on carefully selected landscapes captured from
virtually impossible vantage points, the photographs reflect a genuine Sierra
backcountry experience. Witness the disappearing edges between water
and rocks at Lake Aloha, the scant vegetation peeking out between slabs
of smooth granite in Cherry Creek Canyon, and read about the natural
processes that led to the creation of waterfalls, glaciers, and lakes. The
painstakingly crafted compositions demonstrate how light can determine
the way one sees and remembers a landscape. Musings about the Sierra
Nevada by naturalists, mountaineers, and writers, including John Muir,
Norman Clyde, Jane Wilson Howarth, and Jack Kerouac, complement the
arresting photography.
A self-taught photographer since high school,
Fred Weyman
, from
Reading, PA, was an environmental toxicologist and has backpacked in the
Sierra Nevada more than 30 times over a period of 15 years.
