4,257 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST image of the Grand Canyon from Cape Royal; landscape photograph created by John Freeman

Cape Royal On the Edge

4,257 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Cape Royal, North Rim Grand Canyon, Arizona

Cape Royal is situated at almost 8,000 feet and is the southernmost vantage on the North Rim. It is spectacular and provides the closest thing to a total panoramic view of the Grand Canyon. Visitors who go the extra distance to reach this scenic point will be rewarded with views and solitude. This photo was shoot southern most tip of the 1/2 mile Cape Royal Trail.

Wotans Throne, the large butte just right of center is a 7,721-foot-elevation (2,353 meter) summit that stands prominent extending into the canyon about one mile from the location this photo was taken from. The wooded top of Wotans Throne is composed of 700-feet-thick Kaibab Limestone overlaying 300-feet-thick, cream-colored, cliff-forming, Permian Coconino Sandstone.

Vishnu Temple is a 7,533-foot-elevation (2,296 meter) is seen towards the left side of the photo. It is situated two miles south-southeast of the Cape Royal overlook. Vishnu Temple is named for Vishnu, the Hindu deity, redeemer of the universe. This name was applied in 1880 by Clarence Dutton who thought this mountain resembled an oriental pagoda, and who began the tradition of naming geographical features in the Grand Canyon after mythological deities. The first ascent of the summit was made by Merrel Clubb and his son on July 13, 1945.

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.
