New thoughts on a well know Photographer

More often the not the first images that come to mind when one thinks of Ansel Adams are his famous landscapes. And although his well know images are powerful and stunning they are, in my opinion, over produced which in turn takes away from some of the magic.  While reading NPR the other day I stumbled upon an article that introduced me to new photos by Adams.  The images below are the results of work commissioned in 1939 by Foutune magazine in attempt to document "aviation history".   Enjoy!
