Bow Lake Reflection

94 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Bow Lake, Banff National Park, Canada
I had been up before dawn in a long wait for the sun to rise and light up the peaks over Bow Lake, which is located in Banff National Park in Alberta. It was cold that morning. Really, it is cold there every morning. At 1920 meters in elevation, summer is very short, and the snow never leaves the surrounding peaks which are hugged by glaciers and icefields. The water of the lake is glacier fed, and is ice cold.

I was waiting for the perfect moment where the sun was hitting the mountains, and the water would be as smooth as glass which would provide reflections off the surface. This morning it was not to be. The sun came up, but it brought a strong breeze with it which rippled the surface of the water. This would ruin the shot I was trying to get, so I searched for still water and found a puddle surrounded by grass that was beside the beach that was not affected by the wind.

I quickly set up my tripod and fired off a series of images that I later stitched into this high resolution image. The puddle gave me the reflection I needed and the resulting image was exactly what I was looking for. It was a cold sunrise that morning, and this image captured that moment in time, forever.

Photographic print

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.

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 blockchain encryption 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.
