2,278 megapixels! An ultra-high-resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the Grand Canyon at sunset; landscape photograph created by John Freeman in Rim Trail, South Rim, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Grand Canyon Moonrise

2,278 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Rim Trail, South Rim, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

This photo was taken on South Rim at Mather Point April 15, 2022 around 6:20pm, one evening before the full Moon. Moon rise was at 6:07pm that evening with sunset occurring at 7:01pm.

Just below and to the left of the Moon on the horizon Desert View Watchtower can be seen some 16 miles distant from Mather Point. (See the top right close up view.)

Jean & I were walking along Rim Trail in the Mather Point area which offers many scenic views of the canyon. At this spot the Moon had just risen a few minutes earlier. The long shadows of the soon to be setting sun were extending up the canyon and the late afternoon sunlight was setting all the high points in the canyon aglow with warm light. Zoroaster and Brama Temples are seen just right of center on the horizon. At this location Juniper trees at the top of the rim provided nice foreground so I sat my camera rig up and shoot this focus stacked wall mural panorama.

This focus stacked image is made up of 878 Focus Bracketed images processed to yield 114 individual Focus Stacked images, 6 rows x 19 columns 30% overlap in portrait orientation.

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.
