Spaceman

298 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Lake Heron, New Zealand

On this cold winters evening I packed my camera bags knowing I was in for a long night under the crisp cold sky.

After the three hour drive to the location that would be my home for the evening I got out of my vehicle and walked to the lake edge to look into the dark waters- they were fairly smooth and calm.

I then went back to my vehicle that dew was already settling on and started setting up my photography kit, with a lens warmer to stop this moisture from building up on the front element of my lens!

The next task was wriggling into my waders that would keep the cold water at bay.

I carefully carried my tripod with the robotic panorama head and camera system attached into the dark waters and then I began imaging the scene before me, which I later titled "Spaceman"

This is shot looking back to the shoreline I had walked out from.

The airglow on the horizon really defines the mountains.

The Milky Way grandly rises into the night to the East.

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.

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.
