The Story Behind the Photo

Here's a sunrise panorama of Zabriskie Point in Death Valley. I love this shot because the sun is just under the horizon and we get the gorgeous pink light when the sun illuminates the underside of the clouds. Looking at the time stamps on my photos, there was about a 2 minute window when the light was fantastic and the burst of pink and magenta disappeared as quickly as it came. This was my first morning and the light never got this good again in the remainder of my trip. So twelve hours of driving (roundtrip) and a week of camping for just two great minutes of shooting.

Acrylic Print with a Float Mount — Ready to Hang

Trulife Acrylic Fine Art Print

This is a pigment print where the front has been directly adhered to a sheet of ultra clear, scratch resistant, and anti-reflective acrylic. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally and bounces it off the surface of the print resulting in a display with incredible visual depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to have light emanating from the image itself. The back of the print is sealed with another layer of protective acrylic. The print comes ready to hang with hidden mounting hardware on the back that floats the print off the wall.

Please allow 4-6 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please inquire for international rates.
