Sierra Photography books

Postby themappist » Wed Jul 30, 2014 7:11 pm

I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this but I'm looking for some coffee table photography books on the Sierra. What's your favourite?

I have John Dittli's book on the JMT. A couple of Ansel Adams, A couple Galen Rowell, David Stark Wilson's book on Whitney and the other 14'ers.

Recently picked up both Elizabeth Carmel's The Changing Range of Light and Tim Palmer's Luminous Mountains used on Amazon after doing some relevant searches.

Out of all of these my favorite is David Stark Wilson's book since it is really focused on the high alpine zone and the photos and printing quality are just spectacular. So I guess I'm looking for additional recommendations along that same line. Is there anything else like that out there showcasing the range and beautiful photography?

My favorite is Philip Hyde's The Range of Light, both for the photos and Hyde's autobiographical essay.

If you're not familiar with Hyde's work, you can learn more here:
