Fine art inkjet print from digital image.
Acid free archival mountboard.

A group of ancient tree trunks standing on a plain of shimmering parched earth in Sossusvlei, Namibia. The image is divided into three horizontal sections; sky, dune and earth, each with their own complementary tones. The scale of the dune only becomes apparent once you notice the tiny human figures descending along its side. Depicting how not only are we dwarfed by the scale of our world, but also by the lengths of time taken by the geological processes which formed it.

Captured using a high resolution digital camera with incredible sharpness and tonal depth.
