1,107 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a canola field; landscape photograph created by Scott Dimond in Cowboy Trial, Alberta, Canada

Canola on the Cowboy Trail

1,107 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Cowboy Trial, Alberta, Canada

Alberta’s Highway 22 is officially named Cowboy Trail and stretches 584 kilometers (363 miles) from Mayerthorpe in the north to near Lundbreck Falls in the south but the section that I’m most familiar with is the southern end of the Trail from Longview to Highway 3. I’m fortunate enough to drive this part of the Cowboy Trail about once a month and its always a scenic delight for the eyes no matter what time of year.

The Cowboy Trail runs along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains and passes through foothills, aspen parkland and open rangeland. Lots of rangeland. There are around 3 million people that call Alberta home, but they are outnumbered by approximately 5.5 million beef cattle.

Near the very southern end of the Cowboy Trail, in what is predominately high ranching country, are some open vistas that provide for rare opportunities for agriculture along this part of the trail. I had driven by this location about a week before this photo was taken but I knew I needed to return, while the canola was still in full bloom, with the equipment needed to create a VAST photo

With my VAST gear in hand and hoping for little wind upon arrival, I set out early one morning on the 1 ½ hour drive to this location. There was a good chance the drive would be in vain if there was even a moderate breeze when I arrived. Creating this type of high-resolution photo requires many techniques including focus stacking and photo stitching. Should the canola and other vegetation be moving in the wind between photos, assembling a finished image would be impossible. As luck would have it, the winds were calm, and I was able to capture over 1,300 close-up photos of the scene that would eventually be assembled into this final photo.

I believe this photo really captures Alberta in so many ways. There is the wonderful foreground of bright yellow canola which is such a common sight across the Alberta prairies in July. Combined in the same photo is Alberta’s wonderful green foothills, complete with cattle grazing. Then there is the view of the Rocky Mountains in the distance and it is finished off with some wonderful clouds on a glorious summer’s day in Alberta.

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.
