Medano Homestead

Zapata Ranch, Colorado

 The 1850's homestead at Zapata Ranch has a tons of character and endless photo possibilities - there's this one spot that I keep coming back to. The thickest cottonwood I've ever seen frames the front windows of a house that's been added on to many times. I imagine the part in this image is original and is very well-preserved in the arid San Luis Valley. I chose to emphasize the texture in the old tree to frame the historic buildings, and imagine that someone planted this tree and built the house by hand a very long time ago.

Medano Homestead print

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

Select a print size:

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
