North Cascades Diablo Lake

721 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Diablo Lake, North Cascades National Park

This incredible image of Diablo Lake, along with Ross Lake and Gorge Lake on the Skagit River, was taken in the North Cascades region of Washington. These three reservoirs and the corresponding dams in the North Cascades Mountains provide water and power to the Seattle area. Diablo Dam, part of the Skagit River Hydroelectric Project, was completed in 1930 and at that time was the tallest dam in the world.

The intense turquoise hue of the water is attributed to the nearby glaciers that have ground rocks into a fine powder over hundreds of years and made their way through rivers and creeks flowing into Diablo Lake. That fine power, called glacial flour, then floats to the surface and gives the lakes their brilliant color.

This VAST image consists of almost 90 individual photos giving the viewer amazing detail into the scene. The photo was taken about an hour after sunrise, when the sun rose just enough above the Cascade Range for the light to touch the tops of the surrounding mountains.

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.
