Ian Ely Gallery
As the clouds were rolling quickly by, the sun beamed through for only moments creating a dramatic ray of light casting down onto the canyon below. After many days and multiple trips to this location, I finally was able to capture my vision of the grandness of this place. I was over a mile high from this perspective and was able to capture the sheer beauty of this monumental landscape. Mother Nature's sculpture.
FROM A CHILDHOOD fascination with the medium of photography to achieving the reputation of one of the most respected landscape photographers in the industry, Ian Ely has been in pursuit of Mother Nature his entire life. Sometimes he gets the shot, sometimes he falls short, but the one constant in this driven photographer’s life is the motivation and spirit to keep moving forward.
Never a man content to coast on the strength of his own accomplishments, Ely’s intention is to open 20 galleries over the next decade, located in strategic sites throughout the United States.
