Mountain Moonrise

169 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
First Peak, Mount Seymour, Vancouver, BC
I hiked to the top of Mount Seymour in deep snow, during a time of freezing temperatures. The goal of the trip was to photograph the lights of the City of Vancouver from the mountaintop during the fading light at the end of the day. The snow was deep, and I had to wear snowshoes to avoid sinking to my knees in the fresh powder. The sky was clear, and there was not a sound in the air as I set up my tripod and camera an hour before the sun set for the day.

When the sun was just touching the edge of the earth, I happened to look behind me and noticed that a full moon had just risen over the opposite horizon, and the warm sunset light was hitting the distant mountain tops. The beauty of that view greatly outweighed the sunset over the city that I was there to photograph, so I spun the camera around and shot a series of photos that I later stitched into the high resolution VAST photo that you see here.

It was an amazing and rare sight to see, because the timing of the rising full moon during the fading light of the day seldom occurs. This image is full of paradox. It is cold but it is warm. It is near a city but it is remote. I was there to shoot something else, but I shot this. I love this image, and I hope you do too.

Photographic print

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.

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 blockchain encryption 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.
