Red October, Dubai Desert
from 40.00

Are you a lover of contemporary art or of nature photography??

Each print is signed and numbered. This is a first edition of this fine art print and is limited to 50 pieces altogether, ranging from various sizes and prices.

With the help of a week long trip to Dubai in 2015 and the Lightroom program, a manipulated photo was born.
