Description: Piwayac – Vernal Fall – 300 Feet, Yosemite, 1861. One of Watkins most beautiful photographs made on his first journey into Yosemite in 1861. Before leaving on his expedition, Watkins had a San Francisco cabinet maker construct a large camera (mammoth plate) so that he could capture the beauty of the magnificent scenery with large enough images to do justice to the valley that he had heard so much about.
