160 megapixels! A very high resolution landscape VAST photo of Sheep Meadow and the Manhattan skyline in Central Park at sunrise during autumn; created in New York City by Dan Piech

Good Morning, Central Park

160 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Central Park, New York City
Sometimes breaking the rules is worth it. The view of the Billionaires' Row skyline from Sheep Meadow in Central Park is one of my favorite views in the city. The direct juxtaposition of the park and the city, seemingly on top of one another, is not seen as profoundly anywhere else. It's especially powerful for the week of the year when the autumn foliage is at its peak and the sunrise rays come from far enough north to be reflected off the buildings. Unfortunately, Sheep Meadow is closed behind tall fences during this time, in order to let the grass regrow after a summer full with picnickers.

After a series of lackluster attempts to capture the magnificence of autumn in Central Park, I decided it was worth taking the risk to get a sunrise photo from Sheep Meadow before the few days of peak foliage were gone. So, in the middle of the night, I climbed over the fence blocking the meadow and set up my camera gear hidden under a tree on the north end of the field. As the sun came up and reflected beautifully off of the skyline, I exposed this image. Moments later, a park police officer began yelling in my direction. After a stern scolding and a swift escort out of the park, I found myself walking down 8th avenue with a grin on my face, knowing the image I had stored on my camera.

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.
