1,831 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of sand dunes in Death Valley National Park; fine art landscape photo created by Chris Collacott in Death Valley National Park, California

Dunes of Time

1,831 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Death Valley National Park, California

Death Valley has its name for a reason. It is a stiflingly extreme place – which only made me more excited to photograph it!

On the day I captured this VAST photo, by the time the sun had risen over the mountain range to the east, it was already 39 degrees Celsius. I had attempted to shoot the previous evening however, not only was it too hot, but trying to climb up sand dunes at that temperature was impossible.

Capturing sand dunes may seem like an easy task when it comes to finding the right composition, but it can be very deceiving. Once you peak one dune, you think "it will look better over the next dune", and the endless hunt begins. It can take hours or even days to find the right composition that feels artistically compelling.

Knowing the amount of time finding the right composition takes, I started my hike as soon as there was enough light to see the dunes in front of me. As the sky slowly brightened, I hunted. I finally found the ideal spot just before the sun rose and was able to be in the right place at the right time with the right light, to capture this ultra-high-resolution VAST photo.

Photographic print

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.

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 blockchain encryption 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.
