Death Valley NP | California

When I am feeling stuck in my photography, nothing resets me like sand dunes. In the dunes, there is no end goal, no image in mind. I just walk. This is one of those images that doesn't work for everybody. For me, I look at this image and remember exactly how it felt standing there. There are moments in photography, like life, that are fleeting. These moments often leave me feeling rushed, even stressed. This was not one of them. As the light hit this scene, perfectly illuminating the dunes while leaving the mountains cast in shadow, I had enough time to shoot nearly 20 images in a a multirow panorama. The final image, when viewed large (as it is intended to be viewed), transports me back to this beautiful place. Warm sun on my shoulders, a soft breeze and John Denver quietly playing from my headphones. Photo © copyright by James Lally.

This option is both economical and environmentally friendly. Cotton-Rag prints are mounted to a rigid paper-based substrate and sealed with an archival varnish. The result is a lightweight, glassless display that allows you to get right up to your print. The varnish protects the print from harmful UV rays, while also giving excellent scratch/scuff resistance. The added benefit of the varnish is an image with strong color and deep contrast, causing the image to almost seem three dimensional. Additionally, 100% of the waste produced is recyclable.

The frame is a basic 1"x1" design, handcrafted from hardwood. Choices of wood include: Walnut, Maple, Oak, Cherry and Mahogany. If you want a different wood species, or prefer a painted wood frame, please contact me directly.
