White Pocket Dollops

An often-overlooked alternative to The Wave, White Pocket is a hidden gem within the Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness area. The largest and best-known formations are the Coyote Buttes in the northwest corner of the plateau, including the famous Wave. The second most visited site – White Pocket – is located six miles southeast of the Wave.

“Discovered” by photographers 15-20 years ago, the name White Pocket actually refers to two areas. On the topo map, there is a tall 500-foot-high butte often referred to as the White Pocket Monolith or Butte. Conversely, photographers use the term White Pocket to refer to the area of white and coral-colored cauliflower (aka brain) rock to the east of the White Pocket Butte. This area has many water pockets which account for the name. White, or light grey is the dominant rock color, in contrast to the red of the Coyote Buttes, but the general features are similar – swirling, thin-layered strata, adjacent layers of contrasting color, and curious erosive features. The “brain” area of White Pocket is dotted with white dollops that stand in stark contrast to the red swirls around them.

The area is small, about one hundred acres. Accessing this desert gem takes a high-clearance 4WD vehicle combined with experience driving through miles of deep sand. If you’re up for an adventure, White Pocket in Vermillion Cliffs is a spectacular sight.

Location: White Pocket; Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness area.

FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS

The combination of pure artist papers, special surface textures, and premium inkjet coatings guarantee extraordinary print results with bright colors, deep blacks, excellent contrast, outstanding detail reproduction, and striking pictorial depth. With resistance to aging greater than 100 years, the inkjet media in Hahnemühle’s Digital Fine Art Collection are perfect for fine art applications such as fine art prints, special editions, long-term exhibitions, and art collections.

I use the following two Hahnemühle papers for my Fine Art Photographic Prints:

Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta – a bright white, cellulose-based fine art inkjet paper specially tailored for fine art use. The exquisite felt structure of the paper creates an elegantly soft feel and tactile surface texture to produce prints with stunning three-dimensional quality and depth. The high-gloss premium inkjet coating guarantees outstanding print results with a perfect reproduction of color and detail, deep blacks, and striking contrasts. The acid- and lignin-free Fine Art inkjet paper meets the most exacting requirements for age resistance. Fine Art Baryta is a versatile classic for Fine Art applications and sets standards in the printing of both black and white and color photographs.

Hahnemühle Photo Rag® Metallic – a silvery-shimmering fine art paper with a specially formulated inkjet coating for fine art use. The natural white cotton paper contains no optical brighteners and has the characteristic Photo Rag® surface structure, sumptuous feel, and a special silvery-shimmering surface finish. This premium and unique metallic paper guarantees impressive printing results with bold colors, deep blacks, and the perfect reproduction of color and detail. The sophisticated silver metallic effect underscores the image and makes motifs with metallic elements, reflections, ice and glass, architecture and landscape shots, as well as black and white photographs with high-contrast tones shine. Photo Rag® Metallic is acid and lignin-free and meets the most exacting requirements in terms of age resistance.

You can order your print either Unframed or Framed. Framed prints are decorated in an elegant flat 2″ Black Satin frame with a 1 1/4″ white mat.
