Valle de Muerte (Death Valley) – Atacama, Chile
Flaming Skies – Atacama, Chile
Contrasting Light – Atacama, Chile
New artwork added. I just finished up a one week photographic adventure in the Atacama Desert of southern Peru and northern Chile. The Atacama is the driest place on Earth, with less than 4-inches of rainfall every 1,000 years. The scenic vistas are often compared to the Martian landscape, and with their distinctly reddish hue (especially at sunset) you can see for yourself how true that comparison is (SETI – Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence even has radio arrays setup in the Atacama). Shooting at altitudes approaching 14,000 feet with sub-freezing temperatures was challenging, but I came away with hundreds of solid images, but three were truly spectacular. I’ve added all three to my online gallery and they are now available for sale (two made the Final Cut to my portfolio). These high-resolution images can print very large (about 3 x 5 feet) or smaller as wall space permits. In a contemporary setting they would look great as “Acrylic Prints” or “Metal Prints.” In a more traditional setting I might suggest a “Canvas Print” or “Matted & Framed Print.” They are also available in other presentation formats (including Greeting Cards) depending on your wall space and financial needs. Just click on the individual images to view more options.
