Ancient Sand Dunes

$30.00Price

There are many layers of rock in the Colorado Plateau, and each one tells its own story of what the world was like at some point in the Earth's history.  One of my favorite stories is the one about a massive sea of sand dunes, larger than the modern day Sahara.  These sand dunes were ultimately frozen in time deep underground, and the layers of sand that slowly built up became layers of rock.  In most places these layers have been uplifted in the same origin they were laid down, which in the grand scheme of things, is very unique and amazing.  However, among this large anomaly are small anomalies, where the layers were bent and twisted while in a state somewhere between a pile of a sand and a solid rock.  Please enjoy these unique layers of lithified sand, and the story of these sand grains as they start in one desert and emerge in another millions of years later.

 

This photo will be printed by a commercial print house that I’ve used for close to a decade and has been in operation since the 1970’s. This is an actual photographic print on Kodak Professional Supra Endura VC Digital paper with a lustre finish, which will last over 100 years in normal display conditions. This process is slightly more expensive than a common inkjet print, but offers an extremely high quality reproduction with exceptional longevity of the print. The print will come pre-mounted to a piece of heavyweight matboard, making it ready to be placed in any frame. If you would like it without the matboard, just let me know after purchasing. Prints usually arrive within 2 weeks of ordering. Shipping is only available within the United States.
