2,607 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of Avenue of the Flags at Mt. Rushmore National Monument; photograph created by John Freeman in South Dakota

Avenue of Flags at Mt. Rushmore

2,607 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Mt. Rushmore National Monument, South Dakota

The Avenue of Flags commemorates all 50 states and the US Territories. I had seen several shots from this location with the flags and had always thought it would make a great Gigapixel image if one could be there at a time with few people and no wind.

This particular morning I was waiting at the gate at 5am when they opened the gate. I first shoot a sunrise panorama at the far end of the avenue. As I was packing up to leave I noticed that there was almost no breeze and very few people. I quickly sat my camera rig up at a location I could capture the entire avenue.

I had to take several pauses during the shooting to wait for people to get out of my frame or an occasional breeze that would set the flags to waving. A total of 767 images went into creating 90 focus stacked images that were then stitched to create the final 2,607 megapixel panorama.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
