269 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of Marin County in the San Francisco bay area; panorama photograph created by Jeff Lewis in Marin County, California

Since moving to the north bay, I have discovered countless vistas and compositions that have never before been photographed. Some are in areas that thousands of people pass every day, and others are on remote wilderness trails. Beauty truly is all around us.

This hike is one of my favorites, and has become a "happy place" of sorts. It's a great workout, and even more so with a bag full of high-resolution camera equipment! The view is always a bit different, but only on a very crisp, clear day is it possible to make a VAST photo. With a cold winter storm slowly clearing in the evening, I saw my opportunity and hiked up to my happy place. It was one of the clearest days I've seen up here -- just cold! Perfect for making a VAST photo. In this image you can see SO many Marin County landmarks, the San Francisco skyline, and beyond! It's incredible, and has to be seen at full size.

This image is part of my Awaken series, which showcases the beauty of little-known areas, with the goal of inspiring locals to explore and love our backyard. As of the time of publishing, there is no other image like this in existence. There will undoubtedly be attempts to duplicate it, but few will succeed with the conditions and method required for a large print. As with most images in the Awaken series, serious buyers may choose to have the location revealed to them. I hope you enjoy it!

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.
