Mesquite Dunes - Death Valley National Park

Fine Art Limited Edition of 200 - 

The Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes are at the northern end of the valley floor and are nearly surrounded by mountains on all sides. Due to their easy access from the road and the overall proximity of Death Valley to Hollywood, these dunes have been used to film sand dune scenes for several movies including films in the Star Warsseries. The largest dune is called Star Dune and is relatively stable and stationary because it is at a point where the various winds that shape the dunes converge. The depth of the sand at its crest is 130–140 feet (40–43 m) but this is small compared to other dunes in the area that have sand depths of up to 600–700 feet (180–210 m) deep.

The primary source of the dune sands is probably the Cottonwood Mountains which lie to the north and northwest. The tiny grains of quartz and feldspar that form the sinuous sculptures that make up this dune field began as much larger pieces of solid rock.

PLATINUM SERIES | LUMACHROME ACRYLIC FINE ART PRINTS

PLATINUM SERIES | LUMACHROME ACRYLIC FINE ART PRINTS

The most incredible finished gallery quality pieces that I offer are original photo prints under acrylic glass (face mounted) produced with Lumachrome HD and FujiFlex Super Gloss photographic papers. These museum quality pieces are produced using the best available materials in the world today and are my top recommendation to clients and fellow photographers alike. This fine art process begins by producing a photographic print that is then face mounted from behind to a sheet of crystal clear, scratch resistant and non reflective acrylic glass. Prints produced this way show incredible visual depth and an almost 3d quality full of high definition details, beautiful tonal transitions and incredible vibrant colors.

Light that falls across and reflects off of the face of these prints is visually "trapped" within the acrylic glass and when properly lit, the artwork appears to be illuminated or back-lit. A ChromaLuxe (metal) print, while visually stunning, does not share this same reaction to light or apparent visual depth. Lumachrome & FujiFlex acrylic prints have a silver, almost pearl-like luminescence that adds to the overall luxury feel of these incredible pieces. As various qualities of changing light fall across the walls of your home, the luminescence of the art changes as well bringing the work to life before your very eyes.

Lexjet Metallic Acrylic Prints are a reduced cost acrylic option when compared to my Lumachrome Acrylic pieces. This gallery quality fine art print is face-mounted to .08" acrylic glass before being back-mounted with DiBond. TruLife acrylic is not used with these pieces and a composite recessed framed is used instead of wood. The image quality is comparable to Lumachrome, with a significant cost reduction due to support materials used.
