276 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a dramatic sunset at the Grand Canyon; photograph created by David David at Yavapai Point in Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona.


Yavapai Point, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

The Grand Canyon is well … the Grand Canyon. It is incredible and incredibly diverse. If you happen to visit the touristy South Rim, spend a few minutes gazing over the rim, then leave and think that you’ve seen the Grand Canyon, you’re mistaken. You haven’t.

I suggest, even if you just stay at the South rim, stay for a while, because every day the canyon can look different and every evening there’s potential for an incredible sunset. This Ultra High-Resolution Image captures visitors along the South Rim Trail at Yavapai Point experiencing an incredible Grand Canyon sunset.

To get even a better feel for the canyon, but staying on rim level, visit the East rim, and the beautiful North Rim, making sure to stop at all the viewpoints you encounter.

To appreciate the canyon a bit more, take a hike down one of its easier trails for a bit. Bright Angel Trail on the South Rim or North Kaibab Trail on The North Rim are good options. Pay attention to the warning signs and remember to know your limits.

Remember, the canyon is a reverse mountain. The easy part, the going down, is first. The hard part, the going up, comes second and usually after you’re already tired and run out of water! And a helicopter rescue is rather pricy.

To appreciate the canyon even more, spend a few nights hiking and camping below the rim, or go to the bottom and stay at Bright Angel Campground or Phantom Ranch, or even knock off that bucket list item of a multi-day rim-to-rim backpack trip.

To really, really appreciate the canyon head into something like Zone BE9 or AF9 and spend a week or so backpacking. Only make sure you’re in great shape and an experienced survivalist first.

I’ve done all of the aforementioned, and while I’m saying you can’t truly experience the Grand Canyon with just a brief stop at the South Rim, I also need to toss in a word of caution. Don’t do anything stupid. I’ve spent a lot of time in and around the canyon and I’ve never been on a multi-day backpack without witnessing someone needing to be rescued.

So, if you really, really, really want to experience the Grand Canyon simply purchase this VAST Ultra High-Resolution Image for your home or office. No helicopter necessary!

Title Origin: As mentioned, over the years I’ve been all around the Grand Canyon. But on a recent visit I realized that I had never walked the easy, paved (mostly) South Rim Trail that stretches approximately from the South Kaibab Trailhead to Hermits Rest. The fact that it’s easy and paved is probably why I never had. Well, I’m glad I did it, and while doing so took the opportunity to capture this Ultra High-Resolution Image of visitors who were able to “Cherish The Moment” of their unforgettable trip to the Grand Canyon.

Thanks ... and thanks again,

David David

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.

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.
