Surviving the Flood
Plants in the bottom of a canyon in the Colorado Plateau lead interesting lives. On one hand, it's the best place to thrive in the desert, with the most available water around and plenty of shade during the hot summer months. On the other hand, in the late summer the canyons become a funnel for the power of monsoon rains. The plants that thrive are the plants that can handle these flash floods. This young Fremont Cottonwood is framed by Common Reeds that have been mowed down by this year's floods.
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.
