Today, I’m honored to have one of my photos used as artwork on New Zealand born Composer Annea Lockwood’s Ground of Being CD album cover. An Emeritus Professor at Vassar University, Ms. Lockwood creates music from sounds in nature – wind, water and rocks - and “found instruments.”
Her expansive body of work explores unique acoustic and electronic instrument sounds in natural settings. The album is available at http://www.recitalprogram.com/ground-of-being/.
The featured photo, Nature’s Grand Design, is apropos for sounds in nature, showing a cross section of striated Navajo Sandstone at the iconic Wave, North Coyote Buttes, Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Area, Arizona-Utah Border. This same image was featured in Capture My Arizona’s 2013 calendar.
For more information on the unique geology of the Wave and nearby areas, see: The Wave: Landscape Photography in a Geological Wonderland; White Pocket Landscape Photography: Weather on the Plateau; Whirlwind Photography Trek: Arizona and Utah – Lake Powell.
