Salt of the Earth

Death Valley National Park, California

Fine Art Limited Edition of 50

A dry lake is formed when water from rain or other sources flows into a dry depression in the landscape, creating a pond or lake. If the total annual evaporation rate exceeds the total annual inflow, the depression will eventually become dry again, forming a dry lake. Salts originally dissolved in the water precipitate out and are left behind, gradually building up over time. A dry lake appears as a flat bed of clay, generally encrusted with precipitated salts. These evaporite minerals are a concentration of weathering products such as sodium carbonate, borax, and other salts. Mudcracks (also known as desiccation cracks, mud cracks or cracked mud) are sedimentary structures formed as muddy sediment dries and contracts.  Photo © copyright by Max Foster

Gallery Ultra | Lumachrome TruLife® Acrylic Print | Ready to Hang

Gallery Ultra Lumachrome TruLife® Acrylic Prints are the crème de la crème in gallery quality photographic art and is our #1 choice for ready to hang prints. What makes this medium so stunning? Light that comes in contact with the print refracts within the acrylic material and illuminates the artwork as if back-lit. The process of creating a fine art Lumachrome TruLife® Acrylic Print begins by face mounting the original photographic print under TruLife® Acrylic glass which is scratch-resistant, non-reflective, crystal clear and UV blocking. The print is then backed with an additional layer of rigid acrylic and finished by adding a rear mounted inset wood ROMA frame, which gives the ready to hang acrylic print the appearance of floating off the wall. Lumachrome TruLife® Acrylic Glass Prints are ideal for galleries or private homes and with the proper lighting will take on a luminance that brings the photo to life.

Museum Standard | Lumachrome Acrylic Print | Ready to Hang

Museum Standard Lumachrome Acrylic Prints offer comparable image quality to the Gallery Ultra Lumachrome TruLife® Acrylic, while at a reduced cost. The process of creating a fine art Lumachrome Acrylic Print begins by face mounting the original Lumachrome photographic print under optically clear acrylic glass. The print is then backed with a protective surface and finished by adding a rear mounted inset frame, which gives the ready to hang acrylic print the appearance of floating off the wall. For these pieces, TruLife® Acrylic is replaced with an optically clear acrylic and a composite rear mounted inset frame is used instead of ROMA wood, thus providing the cost savings.

Essential | Fujiflex Crystal Archive Paper Print | Ready to Frame

FujiFlex Crystal Archive Fine Art Paper Prints are a favorite among landscape photographers over traditional photo papers due to its stunning high gloss surface and visual depth provided by the polyester-based material. Because it is a true photographic paper, the photograph is exposed into the silver-halide material and then developed like film (rather than being printed) which allows for superior color, contrast and sharpness. Due to its delicate nature, all FujiFlex Crystal Archive prints are mounted to 2mm styrene prior to shipping. Matting & Framing is required prior to display.
