324 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a beautiful tree; photograph created by Phil Crawshay in Angel Oak, Charleston, South Carolina

Everlasting Life

324 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Angel Oak, Charleston, South Carolina

This incredible 400 year old tree had been on my photography bucket list for as long as I can remember so I was very excited as I approached it with all my gear in tow. That excitement quickly turned to dismay as the custodians of the tree have a bizarre rule that disallows the use of tripods within 100ft of the trunk. The way these high pixel images are taken rely on the use of tripods, however, not to be put off, I removed the panoramic head from my tripod and attempted to shoot the panorama by holding the equipment on the ground as steady as possible. The ground was wet as it was lightly raining so I knew that I was going to get filthy as there is also another even more bizarre ruleā€¦no blankets of any kind within 100ft.
So I lay down on the ground and started the process using the fastest camera settings possible to counteract any unsteadiness in my grasp. I managed to get the first panorama captured and was just resetting to do my second backup capture when an official came up to me and stated that there was no sitting or laying down allowed within 100ft of the tree. By this time the rain was starting to increase so I decided to cut my losses and hope that what I had captured was good enough.
When I got back to my computer to look at the images I was elated that everything had worked in one take and so stitched up the image to what you see here now. As exasperated as I was at the time, I now look back on this with quite a sense of pride and achievement .

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.
