Mt. Rainier And The Milky Way

157 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington

Mt. Rainier National Park has some amazing scenes of old growth forest, alpine lake and craggy ridge lines but at night when the light show kicks in the mountains profile is really the only show in town and it is stunning.
In the Summer on a moonless night the Milky Way passes behind the mountain and offers a stunning profile of the most iconic scene in the Pacific Northwest.
Making images at night takes a bit of practice and patience. I made this image at midnight but I showed up 4 hours early to compose the image and focus. That sounds simple but you have to actually do it. I don't use auto focus zoom lenses. I've found they aren't sharp enough corner to corner. Instead I use very sharp "prime" lenses on nearly every image I make so that when it gets printed at 20+ feet its sharp.
I hope you enjoy this image and that you have zoomed in to find the climbers with there headlamps on.

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.

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. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.
