3,544 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a landscape in Norway with a fishing village, mountains, snow, and the Atlantic ocean; photograph created by Martin Kulhavy in Ballstadheia, Ballstad, Norway.

Ballstad sunset

3,544 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Ballstadheia, Ballstad, Norway

The Lofoten archipelago is located in northern Norway, several hundred miles beyond the Arctic Circle. Almost every mountain provides breathtaking views of the harsh arctic landscape. Add to that the amazing long shadows cast by the sun, which is low on the horizon, and you have one of the most amazing places for a landscape photographer.
Ballstad, with about a thousand inhabitants, is one of the many fishing villages on the coast. Life is not easy here, mother nature rules here. The photo is from the side of the Ballstadheia mountain.
Taking VAST photos is never easy. But climbing in arctic weather on snowy mountains with heavy equipment in a backpack takes my passion to a new level. The hardest part is waiting for the right light in freezing temperatures.

Canvas print

Our ready-to-hang canvas prints are created using a specialty printer that carefully lays pigment inks down onto archival-quality fine art canvas material. The canvas is then stretched around a 1.5-inch-deep wood support structure to provide depth and elegance. Our canvas material has a delightfully matte finish that looks spectacular in any lighting conditions while retaining maximum vibrancy and contrast. Click here to learn more.

Produced using a specialty, large-format fine art printer operating at 300ppi resolution—the gold standard for sharpness
Printed onto heavyweight, 100% acid-free fine art canvas to preserve color-accuracy and longevity
Created using materials and methods that exceed the rigorous technical standards required to achieve the prized "giclée" industry rating
Designed to meet the most demanding standards for color-permanence set by leading museums
Handmade by award-winning master printmakers with over 4 decades of experience
Optionally accompanied by your choice of elegant floater frame available in a variety of trims

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
