Sunrise at Santa Elena Canyon2

Captured another great west Texas sunrise just before the sun pop over the nearby mountains from this vantage point in Santa Elena Canyon in Big Bend National Park. Even before sunrise it rewarded me with these beautiful colorful clouds over the west texas Rio Grande landscape from my vantage point in the Santa Elena Canyon. In this image you can see the colorful clouds through the octillo and prickly pear catus growing on the steep cliff of the canyon walls of this wonderful Texas landscape.  You can see the Santa Elena Canyon from a pretty good distance in the park and it is the most impressive in Big Bend National Park.  The Rio Grande changes direction abruptly after following beneath the  Sierra Ponce cliffs for several miles heading west, cutting through the mountains via a deep, narrow gorge.  It has national significance as the largest protected area of Chihuahuan Desert topography and ecology in the United States.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
