Norwegian Fjord

131 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Romsdalfjorden, Norway
There are some shots you plan for, and some that are extremely unexpected. My first trip to Norway was planned almost entirely as a photography trip, but I don’t think I fully understood what I was getting myself into.

Norway is the single most scenically gorgeous country I have ever traveled to, and I don’t say that lightly. But what surprised me was that on my road trip across the fjord countryside, the destinations I had planned were only half as interesting as the journeys in between.

My crew and I had just left the amazing coastal town of Ålesund, and were heading back inland via one of the primary single-lane highways along the edge of a fjord. Suddenly we were forced to come to a stop, as there was construction on the road ahead. By complete chance, we happened to stop at just the right moment and in just the right place: I stepped out of the car and saw the expanse of the massive fjord and the mountainous shore across the way, and began taking the 12 individual exposures that I would later use to stitch together this expansive view.

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.
