Incredible patterns and colors formed naturally by a thin layer of plant oils from decaying leaves floating in a small puddle in a deep canyon in Utah's Escalante National Monument. The fantastical colors you see, which change with the viewing angle, are a result of a phenomenon called iridescence. As light hits the oil it can either reflect off of the surface, or travel through the oil (refracting) and reflect off of the water surface. These multiple phase-shifted reflections then recombine, attenuating and amplifying select frequencies of light through wave interference. The degree of phase-shift (and thus the perceived color) is modulated by the thickness of the film.

Fine Art Print, Print Only

Psychedelic Soup  print

Fine art archival ink print, personally printed and signed by me on Harman Glossy Baryta paper, which features a lightly textured rich and glossy surface.

Select a print size:

Floating Mount, Ready to Hang

With this elegant and affordable mounting option the fine art print is professionally mounted to an eco- friendly HDF wood board and sealed with a special UV laminate, which protects the print and reduces glare. The finished piece hangs half an inch in front of the wall, appearing to float in the air.

Framed Print, Ready to Hang

My framed prints are different from traditional styles, eliminating the need for glass. The fine art print is professionally mounted to a thin eco-friendly HDF wood board and sealed with a special UV laminate, which protects the print and reduces glare. The mounted print is set in a simple and elegant black frame, ready to hang, and enjoy under any lighting conditions.

Deluxe Framed Print, Ready to Hang

My favorite style, similar to the Framed Print above, but with a large deluxe frame (pictured left) that emphasizes the natural beauty of my photographs. Because there is no glass, there is minimal glare, making this option ideal for places with mixed lighting and large windows.

Acrylic-Glass Mounted, Ready to Hang

With this stunning display method, a vibrant metallic fine art print is professionally mounted face-first onto 3/16" museum-grade UV protected and scratch resistant plexiglass. A french-cleat hanging system allows the print to float 1/2" off the wall.
