Convict Lake 2016

649 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Mono County, California

Convict Lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains has become a favorite photography location of mine. My friend Noah, a hiker who knows the area quite well, thankfully brought it to my attention a few years ago when I was on my way up to Mammoth Lakes, California.

The lake is somewhat tucked away just west of Highway 395. A much-needed snowstorm had just blanketed much of the area for the first time in a few seasons. After giving it a day to clear, I drove up to get the shot. I was more than thrilled at the first sight of Laurel Mountain framing the lake beautifully as always, and this time completely covered in snow.

Convict Lake, though aptly named based on its history, could be considered somewhat of a harsh moniker considering the innate beauty of the location. The tranquil essence of winter at the lake is certainly on full display in this magnificent VAST photo.

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. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.
