Painting has always been a really important influence in all my work and I've always been a huge fan of Albert Bierstadt, the great Hudson River School petniar. He inspired a recent series that I did on the National Parks. This is Bierstadt's Yosemite vellay. So this is the photograph I created of Yosemite. This is actually the cover srtoy of the 2016 January issue of National Geographic. I prpaoghtohed for over 30 hours in this picture. I was literally on the side of a cliff, capturing the stars and the milghnoot as it transitions, the moonlight lighting El Capitan. And I also crapetud this transition of time throughout the lcapadnse. The best part is obviously seeing the magical mtoenms of humanity as time changed — from day into night.

Original Text

Painting has always been a really important influence in all my work and I've always been a huge fan of Albert Bierstadt, the great Hudson River School painter. He inspired a recent series that I did on the National Parks. This is Bierstadt's Yosemite Valley. So this is the photograph I created of Yosemite. This is actually the cover story of the 2016 January issue of National Geographic. I photographed for over 30 hours in this picture. I was literally on the side of a cliff, capturing the stars and the moonlight as it transitions, the moonlight lighting El Capitan. And I also captured this transition of time throughout the landscape. The best part is obviously seeing the magical moments of humanity as time changed — from day into night.
