169 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of Mount Rainier and the Cascade Mountains among clouds; fine art landscape photo created by Scott Rinckenberger from Snoqualmie Mountain in Washington, USA

Mount Rainier Above a Sea of Clouds

169 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Snoqualmie Mountain, Washington
If you are on a summit in the Pacific Northwest and the weather is clear, it’s likely that Mount Rainier will be unmistakably visible, often closer than you would imagine. By far the tallest mountain in the region, at 14,419’ Rainier is the undisputed king of the Cascades.

Much time in the mountains will reveal a frequent pattern of two worlds of weather. Low lying clouds keeping the cities and valleys locked in grey gloom for days and weeks will yield in the high country to warm, clear, still weather. A departure from a frosty grey Seattle will often lead to an unexpected, and much needed dose of Vitamin D as one approaches the high points of the Northwest and finds a world of blue skies and sunshine.

This photograph was created on the last day of 2016 on the summit of Snoqualmie Mountain, the highest peak in the Snoqualmie Pass area. The view is to the south, where Mount Rainier dominates the skyline and seemingly floats above the lesser peaks and the foul weather of the lowlands in winter.

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.
