Great Arch - Zion National Park

497 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Zion National Park, Utah

As you ascend the switchbacks along the Zion-Mount Carmel Highway in Zion National Park, a breathtaking vista unfolds before you: the majestic Great Arch. One stands witness to a geological marvel in the making—the arch, still in its nascent stages, emerges as a testament to the enduring forces of wind and water sculpting the sandstone landscape.

Capturing this moment in time holds a unique allure. In a single frame, we glimpse the ongoing evolution of this natural wonder. Millennia from now, this half-formed arch will stand as a towering testament to the passage of time, shaped by the relentless forces of nature.

The photograph, taken during the tranquil late afternoon, bathes the scene in a soft, ethereal light. Yet, the play of shadows emphasizes the rugged grandeur of the landscape, casting a dramatic contrast against the sandstone backdrop. Upon closer inspection, the tiny figures of hikers atop the mountain lend a sense of scale, highlighting the immensity of the geological formations.

In this image lies not just a snapshot of a moment, but a profound meditation on the dynamic interplay of time and nature—a timeless tableau captured for eternity.

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.
