Heavenly Divine

923 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Assiniboine Provinical Park, British Columbia, Canada

Commonly referred to as the Matterhorn of the Canadian Rockies, the pyramidal summit of iconic Mt. Assiniboine in Assiniboine National Park towers 3618 meters above ground level and bears a striking resemblance to the Matterhorn of the Swiss Alps, albeit with its own fascinations and unique natural dominion.

Accessible only by helicopter or full-day hike, the remote beauty of Mt. Assiniboine left me spellbound, having to pinch myself to believe it was real. The domineering peak towers above Lake Magog and a valley blanketed in Larch trees, unique to northern mountain latitudes. During one week in late September, they provide a short window for me to capture their brilliant and rare shade of golden-yellow foliage.

While our eyes are naturally drawn to the allure of the summit, visibility can be fickle, as this naturally-crafted wonder is at the mercy of the seasons, elements, and time. During my initial attempts to capture the perfect shot, rain and overcast conditions would obstruct the view, while blustering storms threatened to shed and disperse the delicate Larch needles from their branches.

Heavenly Divine took four attempts, as well as four separate trips over 3 years for full immersion within Assiniboine National Park’s enthralling backcountry landscapes. When the clouds parted, I was able to capture the blue sky during the day, the Milky Way at night, and every golden larch needle still intact.

Print only

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.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

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 technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

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. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.
