Snoqualmie River Ice Patterns

104 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Snoqualmie River, Fall City, Washington

In January 2019, the Pacific Northwest experienced a rare lowland snowstorm followed by a deep freeze which rendered the normally green and flowing region a beautiful landscape of feathered snow and crystalline ice formations.

I was compelled to take a number of trips to Snoqualmie Falls, the most iconic waterfall in the greater Seattle area. While much of my photography focused on the grand effect of the extended freeze on the massive waterfall, I too was captivated by the finer forms of the frozen surfaces at the river's edges.

The closer I looked, the more detail I found, and armed with a macro lens and some patience, I took to documenting the fine lines, geometric seams, aerated bubbles and long fissure lines of these very temporary ice sculptures.

Print only

Our black & white photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true photographic 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 technology. Learn more.

Float-framed print

This frame style mounts one of our black & white photographic prints inside a handcrafted frame made from the highest quality Italian wood. The mount causes the print to appear to float effortlessly within the frame and the resulting gap between the print and the frame border acts as a visual mat, providing depth and elegance to the piece.

Your piece has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the rear of the frame and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Note: to fully show off the beauty of the print, there is no glazing on the front of the piece. Click on the icons below to learn more.
