(copyright logo not present on actual fine art print)

I received your print today and just want to say: WOW! Yes, it is breathtaking. I get some ooohs and ahhs from some of the work I print but your print was awesome.
Keep up the good work. Thanks for running the special to entice some of us to sample what is possible with current technology, skill, and a strong dedication to excellence.
From the matting to the packaging it was a first class job.

The Photograph
I am pleased to announce the release of the fourteenth Alain Briot Print of the Month Collection photograph: Seven Foot Long Bighorn Petroglyphs in Big Petroglyph Canyon.

This photograph was created in 1998 with a Hasselblad SWCM-CF and the dedicated Biogon 38mm Zeiss lens. This camera and lens (the lens is permanently attached to the camera) are perhaps the sharpest wide angle I have ever used. It is stunning and without compromises of any sort in its optical design. I used Fuji Provia 100 F film for superb color saturation and reproduction.

As with any and all purchases made from my web site this Alain Briot Print of the Month Collection photograph comes with a "Take one month to Decide" 100% money back guarantee. Additional details on this unique warranty are available here.

The Image
This photograph was created in the Coso Range, a mountain range located next to Ridgecrest, California. The Coso Range is part of the China Lake Naval Weapon Station. Big Petroglyph Canyon, and the petroglyph panel depicted in this photograph, are located within the range. Needless to say, special clearance, authorization and escort are necessary to visit this location.

This photograph was taken during a field trip following the American Rock Art association (ARARA) conference in 1998. The conference that month was organized in Ridgecrest. This conference was particularly meaningful to me because I was the recipient of the ARARA Oliver Award for Rock Art Photography and delivered a speech, and a presentation of my work, at the conference. The body of work I submitted to ARARA for the award consisted of a Print of the Month of 12 photographs of the Coso Range created over the three previous months. This body of work was printed digitally, a fact which, in 1998, was cutting edge. A 20 page description of the process I used to prepare and print the photographs, as well as a CD containing the digital originals of the photographs accompanied my Print of the Month. The whole was enclosed in a museum quality Print of the Month case.

May 2004 California Archaeology Poster
Each month the California Archaeological society publishes a Poster in May celebrating the California Archaeology Month. This month, this poster features Bighorn Petroglyphs in Big Petroglyph Canyon. This poster continues my long-time contribution to rock art preservation and education as well as my involvement with numerous rock art projects and publications.

The Print
This photograph is available framed and unframed. It is hand signed on the mat and the print. The frame is a handmade, Mahogany Finish Frame. The moulding is truly magnificent and does emphasize the beauty of these two images. The photograph I took of the moulding show very closely how beautiful this presentation is. However, these pieces looks much better in reality than a web photograph can show! You just won't believe your eyes when you receive yours. All the framing materials used are Museum Quality, archival supplies. All my work is guaranteed for life in regard to fading and damage caused by framing materials.

Framed pieces are delivered in a stunning mahogany finish frame.
