776 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a bright sunset over a landscape; photograph created by Chris Blake in Kings Canyon National Park, California

Kings Canyon Sunset

776 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Kings Canyon National Park, California

The incomparable Kings Canyon National Park is sadly the least visited of the Sierra national parks receiving fewer than one million visitors annually versus its more popular cousins Sequoia National Park and Yosemite National Park who receive 1.5 million visitors and over 4 million visitors respectively. This is due in large part to the lack of roads to provide access to the more than 460,000 acres of wilderness, with fewer than 30 miles of road in the park you must be prepared for a long hike to see this park’s magnificent sights. This does mean though that most of this park remains free from human impact preserving the natural wilderness.

Just outside of Kings Canyon National Park you’ll find Hume Lake Road. The long winding road will eventually lead you, not unsurprisingly, to Hume Lake. Before then, however, you are treated to some beautiful overlooks. We were driving along the road when I came upon this view, there was no signed pull off so this shot was taken from an unmarked bend in the road.

The Great Western Divide is the section of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range that divides Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. This view of the range at sunset was absolutely stunning. The perfect spring evening led to a truly spectacular sunset over the mountains that had been covered with snow only a week or two prior. Now only a few peaks remain snow kissed as the sunset behind these majestic peaks.

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.
