Dance Hall Rock
Escalante National Monument, Utah
Gathering in Celebration, Mormon members of the Hole-in-the-Rock Expedition found the smooth floor sheltering alcove, and natural acoustics of this beautiful sandstone amphitheature perfect for fiddle, music and dancing. From mid-November to early January of 1880, these special occasions provided pioneers a wecome relief from their labors. Dancing was one of the most important recreational activities for the Mormon pioneers in the west. An observer at the time stated, "In every Mormoan train there were usually some musicians, for they seem to be fond of song and dance, and as soon as the camp work was completed the younger element would gather in groups and 'trip the light fantastic toe' with as much vim if they had not had a twenty mile march that day.".

Print Only: Metallic Paper-Fuji Pearl
Meeting more fine art demands, and my personal favorite, metallic prints are sure to please anyone seeking a paper with a slightly metallic surface and higher gloss than the regular paper. These prints yield a pearlescent metallic sheen that gives prints a sharp, vibrant, and exceptionally rich looking appearance. This paper looks much like traditional 'wet' photo paper with the control of an inkjet printer. Overall, Metallic Paper works well with all scenes, but it's the intimate forest and stream scenes that are vibrantly enhanced with Metallic. I recommend Metallic paper with virtually all of my images.
Print Only: Luster Paper
This archival premium quality photo paper is slightly textured and maintains a satin (or luster) surface that will not show fingerprints or reflect glare like gloss papers. Its color accuracy is top notch. It has excellent ink retention properties yielding an exceptionally large color gamut for bright, realistically saturated colors and accurate skin tones. I prefer Luster paper to properly convey large scenes, or what we photographers refer to as a "Grand Scenic."
Float Mounted Plaq: Ready To Hang
FloatPlaqs give your image dimension to appear as if it is floating off the wall. FloatPlaqs are quickly becoming a favorite for fine art galleries and artists alike and provide the buyer with a clean, classy and inexpensive alternative to traditional expensive framing and matting. Artwork is mounted on an acid-free 3/8” thick surface, finished with a 3/16" black beveled edge, and given a ¾” deep backing to create a floating effect. The backing is recessed from the edge such that it is not easily seen. A simple French cleat system is provided to securely mount and display a FloatPlaq. Quoted prices for Luster Paper only.
