Photograph by Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904), British-American photographer and the pioneer of animal sequence photography. After emigrating to California, Muybridge became a profesional photographer and later director of photographic surveys for the United States government. Muybridge began taking landscape photographs in the mid 1860s, especially in the Yosemite region of California. His large format images of the area gained him his first recognition in 1869. This photograph shows the tree-lined banks of a river, in the Valley of the Yosemite. The mountains in the background are reflected in the mirror-like stillnes of the water.
