Zion National Park, Utah
Five miles up the Left Fork trail in Zion National Park is this section of canyon which becomes almost a tunnel. This is known as "The Subway" and has been shot thousands of times. On this day I was alone with seven other photographers, four others at the top and three others around the corner. The warm lighting streaming in from a reflected sandstone wall at the far end of the tunnel contrasted with the dark, almost blue tonality of the inner portion creates a feel that it is hard to find almost anywhere else.

The print only option is the most affordable route to go. It is just what it sounds like: prints on high quality archival photographic paper without any mounting or framing. One of the benefits of going this route is that you can bring them to your local frame shop to have the matted and framed exactly as you like. Prints are also great if you are in a hurry as they usually arrive in 5-7 days from the time of order.
This mounting option is by far our most popular format. It is both durable and beautiful. It allows the images to reveal an almost three dimensional quality creating the impression of actually being there. This is because there is almost no glare or reflection such as you find with even the most expensive types of glass. An additional benefit is that the artwork is very durable and can even be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. The artwork also resists fading because it has UV protection. When you order a plaque from us, they arrive ready to hang.
Plaque with Frame
We now also offer a unique framing system for our plaque mounted images. This option is perfect if you are wanting a more traditional frame but want to benefit from the great features offered by plaque mounting. The frames we are using are about 2" thick and create the impression that the plaque is floating within the frame by use of a gap between the inside edge of the frame and the plaque. These frames come in both walnut and black and are an affordable way to take the photo to the next level.
You can order prints in various formats such as print only, plaque, framed plaque, acrylic or matted. Upon special request, we also offer our prints in canvas.
