1,548 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a waterfall in Scotland; photograph created by Scott Dimond in Isle of Skye, Scotland

Bride's Veil Falls, Scotland

1,548 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Isle of Skye, Scotland

Bride’s Veil Falls (sometimes called Bride Veil Falls or even Bridal Veil Falls) is located on the Isle of Skye in the Highlands of Scotland not too far from the town of Portree and just south of the famous Old Man of Stor. It was one of the locations that I had scouted virtually in the months leading up to my 3-week visit to Scotland that I thought might make a good subject for an ultra-high-resolution VAST photo. It is also a popular tourist stop so I knew my only opportunities to capture it would be in the early morning or evening.

Scotland means quickly changing weather and changing weather is the enemy when creating ultra-high-resolution VAST photos. But besides the usual challenges in avoiding changing light while capturing the thousands of images needed, this particular location provided challenges with rain and wind as well.

My first attempt needed to be called off after about 30 minutes of shooting. It started to rain and then the wind suddenly came up severely, causing all the foliage, and even my tripod, to sway with every gust. I packed it in and decided to return another day.

The weather forecast for the next morning looked promising with a prediction of good quality soft overcast light (bright sunlight would not work for this scene) but with little chance of rain and only moderate wind. So, I returned again early the next morning and captured all the images needed to assemble this VAST photo. There were light wind gusts at times but for the most part, those only affected the lightweight ferns that grew amongst the heather that surrounded the falls. Using a slow shutter speed to capture the water streaming down the hillside rendered the beautiful veils of water which gives the falls its name.

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.
