Moon and Half Dome – Lego photo recreation

Moon and Half Dome Lego photo recreation

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

The original is here.

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.

Radiometer. The Crookes radiometer, also known as the light mill or solar engine, consists of an airtight glass bulb, containing a partial vacuum. Inside are a set of vanes which are mounted on a spindle. The vanes rotate when exposed to light. The reason for the rotation has been the cause of much scientific debate.
