Zabriski Point Sunrise On The Side
Zabriski Point is one of the “must see” spots in Death Valley – and to say it’s over-photographed is like saying fish are a “little” damp. Each morning, there’s an entire battalion of photographers shoulder to shoulder taking the “normal” viewpoint. And hey – that’s a cool view…
I wanted to try something different.
So I decide instead of the normal front view, I’d climb the ridge to the side and see how that goes.
Now, there really isn’t a “trail” going up the side of this – mostly just a steep drop off on one or both sides with a path that’s often less than a foot wide. One wrong step and it’s a very unpleasant (and very final) ride to the bottom of the canyon. It’s also fairly steep and I can tell you from taking this photo that you’re probably best NOT to try it in the dim pre-dawn light as I did. Oh, did I mention the rocks like to roll out from under your feet too?
Maybe there’s a reason why I was alone that morning on the ridge, LOL.
However intense, the hike up was well worth it. I LOVE the way this looks from the side – especially with the sunlight just tickling the landscape. To say I was excited when I saw this come to life is an epic understatement! I hope you enjoy it too
About Our Prints....
We currently sell both individual prints and completely framed and ready-to-hang prints. Our framed prints are professionally matted, mounted and framed.
Here's a sample of our basic mat and frame:
Framed prints purchased though us are generally a better deal than taking a loose print to your local frame shop since we have a pretty significant discount that we pass along to you. When you receive your print in the mail, it's ready to hang and even comes with the hardware for doing so.
Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.
Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.
All prints are signed in one of the lower corners (usually the right hand corner).
Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.
We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.
Thanks for your interest!
