Pelican Ridge and Chubb Flat
Location Origin Story
Pelican Ridge is part of a small string of mountains directly east of the Blackfoot Reservoir, home to a very large population of pelicans, cormorants, and gulls, hence the name Pelican Ridge. To its immediate south lays a marshland called Goose Lake and a short distance to the east across Meadows Creek and Chubb Flat is Grays Lake National Wildlife Refuge, home to the largest hardstem bulrush marsh in North America.
This beautiful marshland refuge hosts a large nesting population of greater sandhill cranes.

About This Photograph
This serene mountainous scene was photographed in the early afternoon during the month of October while Zedekiah was flying and exploring the Caribou National Forest near the Blackfoot River and Reservoir.
The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera.
Zedekiah used the nimbocumulus clouds as a dramatic backdrop to accent the shadowing across the valley.
Timing the clouds and the angle of the scene to catch the light reflecting on Meadow Creek in the valley was crucial to this image composition.
Lastly, it is impossible to simply walk up a trail and take the same photograph again. This image was very difficult to create, and is truly one-of-a-kind, therefore making it extremely rare.
This image is offered as a numbered and signed, limited edition of one hundred (100) prints.
There are two (2) artist proofs available. one (1) as a volumetric print and one (1) as a satin metal print.
