Florence, Italy at Sunset

917 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence, Toscana, Italy

Florence, Italy is a magical city. There is something about the pace of life and attitude of the inhabitants here that convince you that they know something the rest of us don't.

Once you get away from the tourist-y attractions and find yourself wandering the stone streets where the people of Florence actually live, there is an unmistakable charm that makes you forget you are actually in a city. Instead, as you eat one unbelievable meal after another and open up another bottle of incredible local wine, you feel like you are in a small intimate town.

This city holds a special place in my heart, so on this most recent trip back, I knew I had to complete an ultra-high resolution VAST photo of the Florence city skyline to try and capture the extraordinary detail and beauty that this city has to offer.

From the Piazzale Michelangelo on the south side of the river, you get a sweeping view of the city, and are able to see in incredible high resolution detail all of the famous locations and attractions. This includes the Basilica of Santa Croce all the way on the right, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore with its beautiful red-tiled dome (the "duomo"), and even Ponte Vecchio, the famous bridge filled with high-end shops and wonderful views of both sides of the embankments of the Arno river.

Captured right as the sun was beginning to set on a windy evening in May, and with some dramatic clouds to create a bit of interest in the sky, this ultra-high resolution VAST photo brings into vivid detail all of the wonderful elements that make Florence such an incredible city to visit. I am already planning my next trip to return here.

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

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.
