633 megapixels! A very high resolution, wallpaper photo of a hill with autumn foliage of aspen trees; photograph created by Jeff Lewis in Ouray, Colorado

The Aspen Spectrum: Cropped

633 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Ouray, Colorado

Fall colors in Colorado. A classic American landscape.

Despite being a full-time landscape photographer for a decade, I had never made this pilgrimage before. I had seen too many photos of the same places, heard horror stories about overcrowding, and felt I could find similar scenes in other places.

With a little push out the door from a good flight deal (who doesn't love those?), I decided to spend a week in western Colorado this year, with an open mind. I was blown away by the beauty of the region. Fiery fall colors, massive mountain ranges, and dramatic ever-changing weather. It was almost sensory overload!

Unlike most photographers I know, when I travel, I DON'T extensively research known "photo spots". I prefer to just familiarize myself with the kind of scenery I can expect, and the available roads and trails -- and then just go and explore. On my first day, I drove right on past a lake with 50 photographers set up, pulled off onto a dirt road I'd never heard of before, spotted an open area that seemed like it could offer nice vistas, and headed there.

It was the perfect vantage point to capture the expanse of brilliant fall colors -- in a way that only a VAST photo can!

Canvas print

Our ready-to-hang canvas prints are created using a specialty printer that carefully lays pigment inks down onto archival-quality fine art canvas material. The canvas is then stretched around a 1.5-inch-deep wood support structure to provide depth and elegance. 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.

Produced using a specialty, large-format fine art printer operating at 300ppi resolution—the gold standard for sharpness
Printed onto heavyweight, 100% acid-free fine art canvas to preserve color-accuracy and longevity
Created using materials and methods that exceed the rigorous technical standards required to achieve the prized "giclée" industry rating
Designed to meet the most demanding standards for color-permanence set by leading museums
Handmade by award-winning master printmakers with over 4 decades of experience
Optionally accompanied by your choice of elegant floater frame available in a variety of trims

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.
