260 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a botanical garden; photograph created by Greg Probst in Japanese Garden, Seattle

Springtime in the Japanese Garden

260 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Japanese Garden, Seattle, Washington

A few short steps inside the bronze entrance gate you come upon this scene of the lush greens of the maple trees and vibrant colors of the azaleas and rhododendrons. The garden is surrounded by the University of Washington Arboretum which makes it feel larger then it really is as well as to help silence the outside world. I go to a Japanese garden to enjoy the silence it offers as well as to slow down, its hard to rush through a garden.
The path here is a metaphor for life, you can go the flat easy way or take a chance and go over the bridge, through the woods, and over a creek and come out the other side having crossed several small challenges or take no risk and get to the same destination as those who wanted to put more into life.

This is Bryce Canyon at sunrise. With the sun just peeking up on the horizon, the canyon is still relatively dark, as the walls begin to light up.

Bryce Canyon Close-up

Bryce Canyon, Utah

Bryce Canyon photographed in its entirety is a spectacular panoramic masterpiece to be sure. But for this image, I used a 300mm lens to capture the incredible detail of what looks like a small community among the formations. The even light without shadows allowed for an excellent exposure. There are many interesting areas to peruse in this image.

This spectacular view would have remained unknown to me if it were not for the local knowledge of Enlighten Photography Excursions in Zion. One highly enjoyable (OK, slightly hazardous) ride in Seth’s 4WD got me to the right spot to photograph this gem.

This is the view of the coast of Big Sur looking back towards the area of the Bixby Bridge. The image has subtle colors and also makes for a great black and white print.

The Strolling Pond

208 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Portland Japanese Garden, Portland, Oregon

Spring time in Portland’s Japanese Garden is absolutely stunning. This is probably my favorite garden to visit. This is not just a visual delight but close you eyes and smell it, listen to it. The Cedar and Fir trees plus the blossoms of the Rhododendrons and Azaleas are all there to take in. Have a seat, close your eyes and you’ll get a sense of what else is there.

363 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the Seattle skyline at twilight with the Puget sound in the foreground and the Space Needle in the background; photograph created by Greg Probst in Seattle, Washington

Blue Seattle

363 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Seattle, Washington

I think of myself as a landscape photographer more than a urban/cityscape photographer. I treated this scene of the Seattle skyline the same way I would have had it been a forest or desert scene. I waited for the light to create the texture, the feel, the depth that I was looking for and when all the pieces came together I began making the individual images that became this one very large highly detailed image.
The total time from first exposure to the last exposure was probably about 5 minutes but to create this image took several hours. Once I placed my tripod down, chose my lens and set up and made all the test images, then waited for the light to occur I had invested several hours not knowing if I would make any real images.
To compose this scene I wanted something more than just water in the foreground so I chose to use the pilings as a simple graphic. I feel it adds just enough interest in the scene without distracting from the city skyline.
The soft light of blue hour and the lights coming on in downtown, the clouds catching the last bit of light and all that reflecting into Elliott Bay creates what I hope is a pleasing image to view.

200 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a lush, green rainforest; nature photograph created by Greg Probst in Hoh Rainforest, Olympic National Park, Washington

The Hoh Rainforest in Olympic National Park, WA: Wide

200 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Hoh Rainforest, Olympic National Park, Washington

With 12-14 feet of rain annually and trees up to 1000 years old the Hoh Rainforest is a prime example of what an intact temperate rainforest is, its also the most green place I've ever been, so many hues its incredible.
You almost feel the need to whisper there, like you are in an ancient library and you are afraid to get hushed by the librarian. The sounds are already softened by the lush vegetation so no need to whisper.
When I made this image it was absolutely calm, not even a hint of a breeze. Usually in the Hoh Valley there is an onshore wind from the coast and or a drizzle from the nearly ever present fog which definitely adds to the charm but makes it pretty tough to create images this large. Ive wandered through the Hoh dozens of times over the years and every time it's so different. A giant tree may have fallen, the stream could have changed its course or things just simply grow. It's the reason I continue to go back, I just don't know what has changed since the last time I was there and I want to see it.

1,107 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a canola field; landscape photograph created by Scott Dimond in Cowboy Trial, Alberta, Canada

Canola on the Cowboy Trail

1,107 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Cowboy Trial, Alberta, Canada

Alberta’s Highway 22 is officially named Cowboy Trail and stretches 584 kilometers (363 miles) from Mayerthorpe in the north to near Lundbreck Falls in the south but the section that I’m most familiar with is the southern end of the Trail from Longview to Highway 3. I’m fortunate enough to drive this part of the Cowboy Trail about once a month and its always a scenic delight for the eyes no matter what time of year.

The Cowboy Trail runs along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains and passes through foothills, aspen parkland and open rangeland. Lots of rangeland. There are around 3 million people that call Alberta home, but they are outnumbered by approximately 5.5 million beef cattle.

Near the very southern end of the Cowboy Trail, in what is predominately high ranching country, are some open vistas that provide for rare opportunities for agriculture along this part of the trail. I had driven by this location about a week before this photo was taken but I knew I needed to return, while the canola was still in full bloom, with the equipment needed to create a VAST photo

With my VAST gear in hand and hoping for little wind upon arrival, I set out early one morning on the 1 ½ hour drive to this location. There was a good chance the drive would be in vain if there was even a moderate breeze when I arrived. Creating this type of high-resolution photo requires many techniques including focus stacking and photo stitching. Should the canola and other vegetation be moving in the wind between photos, assembling a finished image would be impossible. As luck would have it, the winds were calm, and I was able to capture over 1,300 close-up photos of the scene that would eventually be assembled into this final photo.

I believe this photo really captures Alberta in so many ways. There is the wonderful foreground of bright yellow canola which is such a common sight across the Alberta prairies in July. Combined in the same photo is Alberta’s wonderful green foothills, complete with cattle grazing. Then there is the view of the Rocky Mountains in the distance and it is finished off with some wonderful clouds on a glorious summer’s day in Alberta.

591 megapixels! A very high resolution, black & white VAST photo print representing air travel; fine art photograph created by Dan Piech in New York City

Aloft, 8: B&W

591 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
New York City

Dan Piech's "Aloft" series captures the breathtaking grandeur of the skies that so many of us take for granted as we soar through the air.

From his Manhattan home in Tribeca, Dan has an unobstructed view of one of the most trafficked airspaces on the planet. With sight-lines to numerous air routes, he has studied the New York sky and the planes that fill it for years. His series focuses on the best moments when sky and plane speak to one another.

As part of the VAST artist collective, Dan uses advanced imaging techniques and equipment to create the photos for his Aloft series at incredibly high resolutions, often dozens of times higher resolution than ordinary photos. This enables the prints from the photos to be perfectly sharp even at very large sizes.

Backdropped by the heavens, the tiny planes in Aloft humble us and remind of us of our place on this beautiful planet.
