531 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a peaceful river at sunset; landscape photograph of the Little Missouri River created by Chris Blake in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota

Little Missouri River Sunset

531 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota

Theodore Roosevelt is one of the least visited National Parks in the lower 48 states and the North section of the park is even less graced with visitors. The park in western North Dakota is a sprawling 70,445 acres comprised of three distant sections. The park is broken down into three main sections, the South Unit (the most visited section), the North Unit, and Elkhorn Ranch. The park is home to badlands and grasslands, and has some of the only remaining original prairies left in the United States.

This beautiful sunset photography was taken just after the summer thunderstorms had finished over the North Section of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I parked at the Little Missouri Overlook and slid down the slightly terrifying and highly slick muddy slope for the perfect vantage point for this photograph. If you look closely at the river banks you can see footprints left by bison.

Creating this VAST photo was a rather hard challenge. As the storm cleared and sunset approached the light was quickly changing. I had to work rather fast to take all the photos needed to stitch this work together.

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.
