Cool of the Morning in Canyonlands Back Country

3,722 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Murphy Hogsback, White Rim Trail, Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Sunrise in the Canyonlands...the first thing that you notice is silence. Utter and seemingly total silence. Then, you notice it, a tiny rustle in a bush. A faint sound of movement and then a tiny desert wren appears and makes a nearly silent call, probably to its mate. With silence this silent, his call doesn't need to be loud. He silently flits from bush to bush searching for his morning meal as his mate joins him in a nearby bush.

The White Rim Trail a rugged 4X4 trail that snakes for 100 miles looping around and below the Island in the Sky mesa top and provides expansive views of the surrounding area. Parts of the trail are featured in this photo, visible at the lower left, one can follow the trail in the photo for miles towards Candlestick Rock. The Green River meanders it way through the canyons around 4478 ft. Turks Butte.

White Rim Trail gets its name because it basically follows the white formation of rock seen along the Colorado and Green Rivers. The 5354 ft. Candelstick Rock, seen just right of center in the image seems to sit on top of the white layer.

This image is taken at Murphy Hogsback, campground "A" about 45 miles into the Canyonlands on the White Rim Trail from our start point at the Shafer Trail switchbacks. It took us over 8 hours to travel this 45 miles in our Jeep Rubicon. We camped the night and I shot this image shortly after the sun rose in the morning.

Photographic print

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
