Last Light on Mount Rainier

56 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Mount Rainier, Washington
It was the crux of an unusual mission that brought us to Ptarmigan Ridge on Mount Rainier on the evening of August 31. I was attempting to ski in my home state of Washington every single month of the year. The endless high mountains make this goal relatively straightforward from the first snows of late autumn through the long snowy spring. Come the later part of a warm, dry summer, this objective becomes a bit more challenging.

The tourists gawked as we set out from the trailhead with full ski and overnight equipment, as they picnicked among the wildflowers and enjoyed the calls of the basking marmots.

By evening, we were the ones who were gawking as the sun descended beyond a sea of lowland clouds, the moon rose on the opposite horizon, and the summit of Mt. Rainier bathed in the very last light of day to hit this part of the planet. Undeniably, the skiing on this outing was terrible, but I would do it every month for the rest of my life if it meant seeing scenes like the one that played out that night on Mt. Rainier.

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.
