5 Artist Proof / 150 Limited Edition
The lines and texture of the sandstone formations in the Old Paria back-country of southern Utah are a photographer's dreamland. Dubbed 'The Wave', the area requires a difficult-to-obtain permit to hike the two-mile trail from the nearest access road - a permit which I have yet to acquire. So I just shoot it from a Cessna instead ... no permit necessary. The shadows were just right on this ancient canvas of sandstone strata to define the shape and depth of the individual ridges and protrusions. It communicates the incomprehensible age of our planet and the eons involved in its marvelous creation.
