250 Echo Cliff Canyon

Echo Cliff Canyon was photographed during a trip to Castle Rock, Utah. The canyons are a short distance from Zion National Park.

While approaching a location it is easy to be enthralled by the natural beauty around you.

Try to find images within areas that are less obvious. Look for details, patterns, or contrasting textures.

Echo Cliff Canyon offers a variety of geologic formations.

Studying abstract images can allow the viewer a different interpretation each time

the image is viewed.


About the Print of the Month

The Print of the Month is a new print offered at an early-edition discount. Normal pricing must apply once the print is offered by a gallery.

The Print of the Month is a silver gelatin print, each one created by hand using traditional darkroom methods.

Prints are limited to 50 per edition.

Typically the Print of the Month is made from a T-Max 100 negative, which is processed in D-76 mixed 1:1.

Each fine art print is made by hand using Ilford-based double weight paper.

The prints are double fixed and selenium toned for longevity.  They are then washed in a vertical print washer to completely eliminate any residue.  Prints are carefully allowed to dry for two days.  Next, each print is mounted on museum quality archival mat boards with acid-free mounting tissue.  Although each print takes a considerable amount of time and meticulous effort, this archival printing and mounting process is the only way to ensure print permanence and collectability. Give it proper care and your print will last hundreds of years without fading.

My signature and the print number are visible on the mat, below the print.

The Print of the Month offers a 50% savings off the normal investment.
