The Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest are among the most expansive in the lower 48. This presents endless opportunities for exploration, but it also presents challenges in terms of finding viewpoints from which to digest the enormity. Yet, nature saw fit to solve this challenge in the form of a line of volcanoes stretching from northern California to the Canadian border. The volcanoes are taller and more prominent than the rest of the densely populated peaks, and offer lofty vantages from which to enjoy the surrounding landscape for hundreds of miles in any direction.

A late summer morning found me around 11,000’ high on a route called Ptarmigan Ridge on the NW side of Mount Rainier. The low sun of the morning played with the lazy summer haze in each of the countless valleys, and gave depth and dimension to the amazing topography stretching all the way to the rugged peaks of North Cascades National Park.

These moments of wonder are why I choose to call this part of the world my home.

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.
