Entry Description

"Submerged" embodies the concept of seeing the earth's natural landscape as if it were an ocean floor under an vast oceanic sky. Similar to an iceberg submerged below the ocean's surface, the exposed canyon monolith lays beneath the cloud cover, with the sun's rays illuminating its rugged presence, juxtaposed against a backdrop of calm, crystalline blue skies.
