5 Artist Proof / 100 Limited Edition
I slowed the Cessna to around 80 mph and began circling over a truly amazing landscape. I was hoping for tight vertical perspectives of the gorgeous red sandstone layers when I spotted a face of strata with a nice balance of light and shadow that looked promising. I planned my approach to pass over at just the right angle and altitude and began circling for a series of quick shots. I absolutely love this resulting capture; the detail and depth of the rough cut surface in just the right defining shadow, the variations of color and texture, and ultimately - my perception of its very personal story of the centuries of processes endured to become such a glorious manifestation of the beauty of our planet.
