276 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of moss on a rock wall with some water running down it; nature photograph created by David David in Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, Michigan.


Porcupine Mountains Wilderness, Michigan

I have spent a significant amount of time in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, especially the Porcupine Mountains, Pictured Rocks, and Tahquamenon Falls areas. Given that this is my home state it’s always nice to photograph its beauty, and it is beautiful.

It’s not called the Great Lake State for nothing. Water everywhere. The Upper Peninsula should probably be called The Great Waterfall Peninsula since water cascading and/or seeping, as depicted in this image “Mountain Tears”, can be found around every turn.

I photographed this image while on a multi-day backpack through the Porcupine Mountain Wilderness. It was an absolute glorious day when I produced this VAST Ultra High-Resolution Image. The trail I was on passed by an area of moss and moisture on stone walls that I thought looked quite interesting. I always think in terms of, “Would I want this imagery hanging over my couch?” and the answer here was an emphatic, “Yes!”

Title Origin: The title “Mountain Tears” can be interpreted a couple ways, I guess. But due to my completely enjoying the hike, the fantastic day that it was, and are you ready for this, those of you who may be familiar with the area … there were no mosquitoes! Unfortunately, with water, often comes mosquitoes. So, my interpretation of “Mountain Tears” is that these were not tears of sadness, but tears of immense joy. Especially for the no mosquitos part.

Thanks ... and thanks again,

David David

Print only

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.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

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 technology. Learn more.

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.
