Alain Briot Print of the Month Collection
Print of the Month Photograph Number Three

Clearing Spring Storm Over Canyon de Chelly, Arizona
(copyright logo not present on actual fine art print)

I just got the photograph and I think that it is amazing, so much better than on the screen especially if you light it up correctly with a spotlight. It looks so good that it is always mistaken by myfriends to be a painting ! And when I tell them it is a photograph they cannot believe it.

Canyon de Chelly
The third photograph in the Alain Briot Print of the Month Collection is one of my favorite images: Clearing Spring Storm over Canyon De Chelly, a panoramic photograph created in the Spring of 1997 shortly after I moved to Canyon de Chelly on the Navajo Reservation. I like this image so much that I have a 60x25 panorama of it hanging over my desk.

This piece is truly spectacular and displays an exquisite print quality.

I created this image shortly after moving to Chinle, Canyon de Chelly, on the Navajo Reservation in 1997. Tsegi overlook, where the photograph was taken, was only 10 minutes from my house. I was on my way to pick up my wife, Natalie, after work when I noticed the dramatic clouds. I realized that if the sun came out a truly incredible lighting effect would take place. I immediately decided to drive the short distance to the rim of Canyon de Chelly and wait and see if the sun was going to appear.

I waited perhaps half an hour until the sun broke through the clouds. What I witnessed then remains one of the most incredible scenes I have ever seen. "Clearing Spring Storm over Canyon De Chelly" is the result and this image explains what I saw better than any text I can write. I took a number of photographs and the best one was the second or third one. Before that there was not out enough sunlight. Afterwards there was too much sunlight. The best photograph was just in between, when the light and the shadows were evenly balanced creating tension and beauty at the same time and making me deeply aware of the utterly temporary nature of Natural light at transitional times when storms are moving away.

Framed pieces are delivered in a stunning mahogany finish frame.

The Photograph
This image is very difficult to print because of its high contrast. It is therefore a challenge to create a print which shows what I saw and felt when I photographed this scene. For months I attempted to print this image with unsatisfactory results. It wasn't until 5 months after I took the photograph that I created a print which truly satisfies me.
