180 megapixels! A very high resolution, big photo print of a waterfall with trees and rocks; nature photograph created by David Meaux in Cascade de Navacelles, Navacelles, l'Hérault, France

Emerald Flows I

180 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Cascade de Navacelles, Navacelles, l'Hérault, France

Nestled in the heart of the Vis River Gorge, which separates the Causse of Blandas (Gard) from the Causse of Larzac (Hérault), the Cirque de Navacelles is a unique geological feature that offers an unsuspected change of scenery between the limestone plateaus and semi-arid shrubland, an unexpected green oasis at the center of it all. Three hundred meters (984-feet) deep, the Cirque is an oxbow lake: a dried-up river meander, left as the Vis forged a more direct route through the landscape and created this eight-meter (26-foot) high waterfall in the process.

To get this view I had to carefully perch myself and set up my camera on one of the large boulders sitting in the water at the bottom of the waterfall. Trying very hard not to drop my equipment in the rushing river below me, I waited for the right light. As a windy breeze picked up and I could feel the mist of the waterfall in my face, I found myself soaking in the sun and feeling like this must be somewhere other than the Vis River Gorge. The many swimmers trying to make it down the rocks beside the waterfall brought me back to reality as I dealt with another one of the challenges creating this image.

This VAST image is a panoramic composite of multiple long-exposure and short-exposure images to show the flow of the water, bring out the details of the vegetation surrounding the falls, and avoid the multitude of people on the falls. Once back at home, I spent many hours blending the long-exposure images of the rushing waterfall with the still images of the trees and vegetation to achieve the serene final result.

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.
