Davis Peak South Summit

152 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Davis Peak, Columbia Mountains, British Columbia, Canada

New Year's Eve marked a temporary break in the stormy weather in the high country. The snow had been pounding for weeks, and the Monashee Mountains near Revelstoke, BC were blanketed in fresh powder.

For a lucky handful of people, these conditions coincided with a helicopter-accessed backcountry hut trip to the beautiful Blanket Glacier Chalet. Equipped with comfortable lodgings, excellent food, a wood fired sauna and great company, the chalet is a perfect place; just enough distractions to avert boredom, but not enough to keep you from waking early, skiing until dark, then doing it all again the next day.

The morning of New Year's Eve, we managed an early start, navigating by local knowledge through thick fog, ever trending upwards on a gentle but unrelenting climb. It wasn't until we had reached the summit ridge of the peak above the lodge that we broke out above the clouds. In biting winds, but with exalted moods, we dug in for a lunch break as we enjoyed watching the seething seas of clouds lash against the lower buttresses of the surrounding peaks, while the summits stood proudly above the melee in their fresh winter coats.

In awe, I photographed the scene in glorious detail, hoping to relive this rare and fleeting New Year's celebration.

Print only

Our black & white photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true photographic 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.

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.

Float-framed print

This frame style mounts one of our black & white photographic prints inside a handcrafted frame made from the highest quality Italian wood. The mount causes the print to appear to float effortlessly within the frame and the resulting gap between the print and the frame border acts as a visual mat, providing depth and elegance to the piece.

Your piece has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the rear of the frame and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Note: to fully show off the beauty of the print, there is no glazing on the front of the piece. Click on the icons below to learn more.
