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

Bride's Veil Falls, Scotland: Cropped

912 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.

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.

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.
