163 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area; landscape photograph created by Jeff Lewis in Golden Gate National Recreation Area, California

Peek

163 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Golden Gate National Recreation Area, California

San Francisco's moonrises have become famous tourist spectacles. Dozens, if not hundreds, of photographers and sky watchers will gather in classic locations to watch the moon rising over the bridges and city skyline.

Crowds aren't really my thing. I prefer to hike and explore. So I decided to head a couple miles away from the crowds, take a walk up a mountainside trail, and see what I could find. Having hiked here previously, I knew the area had potential.

I was initially thinking to find a view of the city and skyline, so I could zoom way in and catch it up close. But not much could have prepared me for the visual feast of golden light, right as the moon came up. I knew I had to show a larger scene, with the complete view of the San Francisco skyline, and the beautiful Marin Headlands in the foreground.

With a normal photo, this wouldn't amount to much, because there wouldn't be enough detail. But this is a VAST photo. You can enjoy the Golden Gate Bridge and each of its red cables, the individual buildings of the city skyline behind it, or peek into the trees and shrubs that cover the beautiful hills of southern Marin, or admire details in the dramatic sea cliffs. This scene was tailored for a large, detail-filled print, and you'll find yourself drawn to a different part of it every time!

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.
