Sunwapta Falls

653 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

The Icefields Parkway starts at the townsite of Lake Louise in Banff National Park and travels north to the townsite of Jasper in Jasper National Park. It is regarded as one of the best alpine drives in the world. Visitors are greeted with scenic views around every corner that include glaciers, turquoise lakes, endless pine forests, and of course, waterfalls.

Approximately 55 km (34 miles) south of the Jasper townsite along the Icefield Parkway is Sunwapta Falls. Sunwapta, in the language of the Stoney Nakoda Nation, translates to “turbulent river”. There are actually two waterfalls, the upper and the lower, located where the Sunwapta river abruptly changes course as the river carves its way through the limestone rocks to form a narrow canyon.

On this particular summer’s day in July, I arrived long after the tourists had left, set up the special equipment needed to create this VAST photo, and started shooting around 9 pm. It was a peaceful experience in a glorious setting, with just the noise of the water rushing by and the repeated clicking of a shutter. A photographer’s dream.

Print only

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.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

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.

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. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.
