1,757 megapixels! A very high resolution landscape photo of Boulder, Colrado in autumn; photograph created by John Freeman

Morning Light on Fall Colors and Flat Irons

1,757 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Boulder, Colorado

The hiking trail from Coot Lake along the northeast shore of Boulder Reservoir is a popular hiking area for the folks around Boulder. I had seen photographs taken from this location and thought it would be an excellent site from which to shoot a VAST photo of the fall colors with the early morning light illuminating the Flat Irons. I had been monitoring weather reports and this morning was predicted to be fair weather.

Boulder Reservoir is the site of the Colorado Universities Rowing team's practice area. Many mornings during the fall you will see and hear the teams rowing around the lake.

This image made up of 956 individual focus bracketed images yielding 92 individual focus stacked images (4 rows x 23 columns) that were then stitched to create the final image. Focus bracketing/stacking allows the use of an ultra telephoto lens while providing for maximum depth of field. This allows for virtually the entire image to be in focus.

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.
