1,150 megapixels! A very high resolution landscape photo of the Blue Ridge Mountains; photograph created by John Freeman in Mile Post 450.2, Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina

Dawn on the Blue Ridge Parkway

1,150 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Mile Post 450.2, Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina

All along the Blue Ridge Parkway, overlooks provide stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountain in Virginia and North Carolina. This view from the Yellow Face Overlook at Mile Post 450.2 provides a spectacular view on this October morning.

Heavy fog lays in the valleys with hues of pink from the rising sun. The rising sun sets the fall foliage ablaze in the warm early light.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is America's longest linear park, running for 469 miles (755 km) through 29 Virginia and North Carolina counties, linking the Shenandoah National Park to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It runs mostly along the spine of the Blue Ridge, a major mountain chain that is part of the Appalachian Mountains. Its southern terminus is at U.S. 441 on the boundary between Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Cherokee Indian Reservation in North Carolina. It travels north to Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and continues on as Skyline Drive, a similar scenic road, [Source: Wikipedia]

Canvas print

Our ready-to-hang canvas prints are created using a specialty printer that carefully lays pigment inks down onto archival-quality fine art canvas material. The canvas is then stretched around a 1.5-inch-deep wood support structure to provide depth and elegance. Our canvas material has a delightfully matte finish that looks spectacular in any lighting conditions while retaining maximum vibrancy and contrast. Click here to learn more.

Produced using a specialty, large-format fine art printer operating at 300ppi resolution—the gold standard for sharpness
Printed onto heavyweight, 100% acid-free fine art canvas to preserve color-accuracy and longevity
Created using materials and methods that exceed the rigorous technical standards required to achieve the prized "giclée" industry rating
Designed to meet the most demanding standards for color-permanence set by leading museums
Handmade by award-winning master printmakers with over 4 decades of experience
Optionally accompanied by your choice of elegant floater frame available in a variety of trims

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.
