White Sands National Monument - New Mexico
Few places on earth provide the otherworldy feeling you get when hiking through these dunes of pure white sand. White Sands National Monument is located in the Tularosa Basin in the Chihuanan Desert in southern New Mexico. This basin is unique because it is completely enclosed, not allowing water to flow out of it. The pure white sand that makes up the dunes is pure gypsum. Gypsum is almost never seen in the form of sand because it's water soluble. Usually it will disolve in the rain and be carried out to sea. But in the Tularosa Basin, the gypsum that comes from the surrounding mountains flows into the basin with the water where it gets trapped and eventually sinks into the ground or evaporates, leaving behind large gypsum crystals called selenite. Eventually weather and erosion breaks up the selenite crystals in the basin and the prevailing winds transport the gypsum sand to the dune field. It is this rare combination of ingredients that result in this amazingly beautiful and rare place. White Sands is the largest gypsum dune field in the world.

Metal Print - Ready to Hang
With metal prints the brilliant surface offers a richness of color that makes viewers take notice. But they also solve the "problem" of framing. Traditional mounting, matting, and framing can be a time consuming and expensive process. Not so with Metal Prints, the metal surface is naturally smooth and rigid, and with a hanger attached to the back, they are ready to hang right out of the box. This is a great choice for a ready to hang contemporary piece of wall art at a more econonimal price.
Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang
Canvas Gallery Wraps offer a superb way to display your photographs. What makes canvas wraps so popular is that they eliminate the need (and cost) of framing. Your Canvas Wrap is ready to hang on your wall, right out of the box. Once you see your Canvas Wrap, you'll understand why these are one of the most popular trends in decor and display. Canvas wraps are also a great option if you have a room that received a lot of glare. The canvas won't reflect the light like a traditional glass or acrylic frame will.
