Geirangerfjord, Norway

386 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Ørnesvingen Geiranger, Norway
Norway is the single most scenically gorgeous country I have ever visited. Part of what makes it so incredible for a landscape photographer, is the pace at which the scenery can change dramatically. One moment you will be driving through a lush green valley with giant waterfalls on either side of the road and the next you ascend to a slightly higher elevation where you find snowy baron hills that resemble a moonscape. Then, before you know it, the windy road takes you back down into a gorgeous fjord.

I knew that the view of Geirangerfjord was a shot that I needed to capture, but I wasn’t quite expecting the overwhelming sense of scale that we were about to encounter. The drive itself was spectacular, with every turn of the road offering some new perspective and vantage point on the large body of water and surrounding mountains. When I found the lookout point that had the most expansive view of the entire fjord, we stopped the car, set up our gear, and waited for the clouds and the light to be just right.

I attempted to capture this shot in what felt like a hundred different ways. How do you demonstrate the immense scale of a location like this? In order to convey how truly large this Norwegian fjord is, I realized it would be essential to include the human components of this scene in the final image, such as the town on the far left side of the frame. Additionally, if you look closely at a number of places in the water, you can see small motorboats making their way through this gigantic waterway once carved by glaciers. Those multiple human elements helped me to establish this sense of scale, and showcase the dramatic nature of the mountains and waterfalls of this incredible location.

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.

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.
