This photograph comes originally from the collection of photographer Philip Hyde (1921-2006), who studied in the 1940s under Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and Minor White at the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute).  Hyde photographed extensively for The Sierra Club, contributing for more than 40 years to its conservation efforts.
