It is one of the highest quality images
Hawaii is known for many beautiful natural scenes. One of the most spectacular is the 442-foot-tall Akaka Falls waterfall. My goal was to capture a VAST photo of the falls surrounded by the lush green vegetation Hawaii is known for.
On this particular day, the volume of water falling was somewhat diminished, leading to more distinct patterns in the falls becoming visible – something I prefer over an overflowing waterfall that just becomes a monotonous wall of white. When this low-water-flow situation is paired with long-exposure photography, the result is an image that has silky smooth water patterns cascading down the rocks, creating fascinating patterns that draw viewers’ eyes.
Adding to the allure of this VAST photo is the rainbow that appears at the base of the falls. Hawaii is such a magically beautiful place and this rainbow is further testament to that.
My goal with this VAST photo was to ensure I captured that magical feeling with as much detail and resolution as I could. The resulting image is nearly 200 megapixels, leading to strikingly high-quality prints that I can take great pride in.
This 194-megapixel VAST photo is one of the highest definition photographs ever created. It has a resolution equivalent to 94 HDTVs.

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery. Learn more
Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style. Learn more
