The same as it's sister image, "The Good Shepherd", this aluminum

The Magical Morning Series. I spent close to three hours in this particular meadow photographing over 200 elk. The rut was in full swing and 6 herd bulls and their cows had filled this meadow along with non-stop bugles. Amongst them were about 12 satellite bulls running around and trying to steal the occasional stray cow. It was an awesome and beautiful sight, and the sounds, well, the sounds of constant bulging in the air, through the woods, and in the earth under my feet made me feel like I had traveled back to prehistoric times. If you've never heard a bull elk bugle out in the woods and close by, take it from me, it can be quite intimidating!
During all the activity if you looked to the right you saw the scene captured here which I've called "Sunrise In The Valley". If you turned just slightly to the left you saw the scene captured in the image , "The Good Shepherd".
Each of these images depicts a herd of elk with their bull, the sun still in the early stages of the morning rise and still below the the gathering storm clouds giving us the beautiful lighting effects through the trees.
At 24" X 36" Sunrise In The Valley is intended to be the focal point of any room. Printed directly on brushed aluminum with a floating frame causing the print to float off the wall 1.5", this image is a favorite among some of my biggest fans. The early morning sunlight highlighting the Fall colors makes for a beautiful picture and the herd of elk is just the icing on the cake.
Sunrise In The Valley Canvas Print in a limited edition of 250
A 24 X 36 inch print on canvas with a satin laminate wrapped around and mounted to a thin but sturdy gatorboard. The pigment ink, canvas, and gator board are all archival quality to make sure your print looks as good 100 years from now as it was the day you received it. The canvas has the textured quality of fine art and the satin laminate not only provides excellent protection from dirt and UV light but since it is non-glossy gives many more options for placement.
From the angle on this example you can see the canvas texture as well as the satin laminate.
Once the canvas is wrapped and mounted to the gatorboard, foam mount blocks are added to the back making your print ready to hang with a float mount appearance. The print will "float" off the wall half an inch giving it a contemporary look.
From behind you can see the mount block which makes your print ready to hang when you receive it and gives it the appearance of floating off the wall. This creates a more modern display.
