Moon and Half Dome

I'd be impressed if anyone managed to recognise this without the title.

 

Ansel Adams is probably my favourite photographer of all time, and this is one of my favourite photos of his. His photos don't exactly jump out as being suitable for Lego reinterpretation, but I'll be dammed if I'm not going to give it a go.

 

"Moon and Half Dome" was taken by Adams in 1960 in Yosemite national park, California.

 

The original is here: shop.anseladams.com/Moon_and_Half_Dome_p/5010117-u.htm#.U...

 

Setup shot here.

 

This was the only shot where I was happy with the shadow. I dismantled the setup to exchange the slighty chewed up bricks for better ones, but couldn't get the same effect again. I shall just pretend that the rough bricks are meant to be weathered rock.
