269 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of wildflowers with San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge in the background; landscape photograph created by Jeff Lewis in Marin Headlands, California

Sometimes, good things happen when things don't quite go as planned. On this day, I knew there was beautiful and rare low fog flowing through the Golden Gate, and I knew this patch of big purple Pride of Madeira flowers was likely blooming, as I had photographed a similar vantage point in a previous year. So I made my way over to the Marin Headlands, and hiked over to this hill. The flowers were in full bloom, but the fog had risen a bit higher, and the bridge was barely visible. Because of all the fog, it was very windy, eliminating any hope of successfully completing the difficult method of focus blending for a sharp telephoto image from front to back.

Being forced to change my plans on the spot is often how some of the best creativity comes out. So, instead of my original plan to photograph from above the flowers with a tidy image highlighting the bridge, I decided to get down IN the flowers, and show the peeks at the incredible vistas through them. I only had short windows of 10-20 seconds when the bridge would be visible, so I made sure my VAST photo lined up with those times. The final image turned out far more spectacular than the classic view I had come for (and already captured before). It makes us feel like we're standing in the flowers, peeking through at the amazing scenery behind, with fog flowing over the hills. Pure bliss! And YOU, of course, can even enjoy the photo without feeling the cold wind!

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.

Printed onto heavyweight, 100% acid-free fine art canvas to preserve color-accuracy and longevity

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.
