Sunrise on New Snow

1,063 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
County Road 5, Ridgway, Colorado

Oct. 3, 2023. 7:30am. -- The previous two days had been nearly steady rain. The overnight weather forecast had predicted snow down to 9000 ft., with clear skies at sunrise. So we got up early and drove to this location on County Rd 5 that we had scouted out the day before. Hoping for fresh snow on the peaks the Good Lord didn't disappoint us. The higher mountains were wearing a new coat of fresh powder snow. A dusting of snow remains on the evergreen trees near the tree line. Thankfully, it had not gotten too cold which would have caused the scrub oaks and Aspens to turn brown. As we were shooting we could hear an Elk bugle in the valley below us. As I was editing the photo I found him standing looking up towards me as if to say "I see you!". He is featured in the close up view in the lower right area of the photo.

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.
