439 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a pastel-colored landscape; photograph created by Chris Blake in Mammoth Lakes, California

Brees Lookout Sunrise

439 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Mammoth Lakes, California

Hot Creek hydrothermal system is in Mono County in the eastern Sierras in California. It is yet another gem on the Eastern Sierra. Mammoth Creek winds its way through the high valley with 11,000-foot peaks all around. While the primary water source is snow melt from the surrounding mountains as the water seeps into the ground it is heated by a hydrothermal system and through several springs comes back to the surface very warm.

In the valley in this VAST photo the hot springs form from two faults underground which discharge super heated water to the gorge. The area is very active and known to have sudden changes in geothermal activity. Some areas around the springs suddenly began shooting water up to 6 feet in the air. Other time steam vents have been known to open (or close) at random.

I created this image in the early morning just after sunrise. As it was very late in the summer the mornings were very cool and the steam from the vents could be easily seen. The green gorge and meandering river lead the view into the distant mountains that are just receiving the first light from the east.

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.
