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.

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.
