Towers of Silence

Wahweap Hoodoos Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument - Utah

In an alcove far into a remote area of Utah desert is where the Wahweap Hoodoos stand. These impossibly white towers are formed out of a uniquely colored entrada sandstone. A harder layer of dakota sandstone has protected the softer rock from erosion and can still be seen as the brown caps of stone atop the towers. The older, softer entrada sandstone is 160 million years old. Over these millions of years erosion and weathering have created these amazing white pillars. The towers are the most dominating element of this landscape, but my eyes were soon drawn to the ground. The rock in some areas appears to flow like a river, cascading down the slope and around the hoodoos in a liquid like motion. This place is ancient, but at the same time so mysteriously alive. The sandstone rock appears to be in movement. A direct contradiction to the age and lifelessness of this quiet fragile place.

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

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 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.
