Red Rock Canyon #3

5,868 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta Canada

In the heart of Waterton Lakes National Park (located in the province of Alberta, Canada) a small glacier stream has quietly and steadily, over eons of time, cut a deep valley through an iron rich vein of red stone. This place is aptly named Red Rock Canyon and it's my favourite place in the world.

In July 2017 I spent a week in Waterton, specifically photographing the few miles of steep canyon walls colored in a beautiful red hue. I don't usually make color photos - my real passion is black and white - but with a landscape of such striking colors as Red Rock Canyon, a color photograph is needed.

Making VAST photos here is particularly challenging due mostly to the temperature of the water, which comes from local glaciers, making it freezing cold! I wear full wetsuit pants with built in socks when shooting here as it's impossible to stand in the water for more than few seconds otherwise. If you fall into the water you better get out quick as hypothermia will get you within a few minutes. The beauty and seclusion of the canyon along with the cold, clear fresh water (which is the best tasting water in the world) provide for an absolutely beautiful experience.

My tripod was set up in the middle of the stream making it necessary for me to stand in the ice cold water for the duration of the more than 700 individual exposures. This is a truly massive image, filled with an incredible amount of rich detail and textures that a viewer could spend hours exploring.

Photographic print

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.

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 blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.
