3,375 megapixels! A very high resolution, large VAST photo print of a trail in verdant hills and mountains at sunset; inspirational landscape photograph created by Scott Dimond in Bighorn Sheep Meadow, Kananaskis Country, Alberta Canada

The Trail at Bighorn Lookout

3,375 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Bighorn Sheep Meadow, Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada

Situated west of the city of Calgary in Alberta, Canada is Kananaskis Country. It is a large recreation area in the foothills and mountains of the Canadian Rockies. Kananaskis Country encompasses 10 provincial parks and has four main access points. One of the less used access points is west of the town of Turner Valley and provides dead-end access to Bluerock Wildland Provincial Park and Sheep River Provincial Park. When driving, the borders of these parks are not obvious but both parks preserve parts of the Sheep River Valley and including the Sheep River Wildlife Sanctuary which provides a permanent habitat for bighorn sheep. It is within this habitat that the Bighorn Sheep Meadow and Bighorn Lookout are located.

On a warm June evening, I drove out to the Bighorn Lookout hoping to capture a wonderful view of the Bighorn Sheep Meadow and the mountains beyond. Upon arrival, I met a couple that had just packed up a late evening picnic. As they walked past me and we exchanged pleasantries, I admired their lovely wicker picnic basket and checkerboard blanket. Although they gave me no indication that such was the case, as I looked out at the view they had just enjoyed in solitude, I could imagine it would have been a perfect time and place to propose. Moments later they were gone, and I had the entire view to myself. Not a soul in sight. Just me, the Sheep River valley to my left, the lush open Bighorn Sheep Meadows front and center, and the Canadian Rockies in the distance. As the sun slowly sank, I set up my specialized equipment to capture the scene in ultra-high resolution. I decided to make the trail along the lookout a key feature of the image allowing the viewer to imagine walking the trail, enjoying the fresh air, and exploring the area for the long hours of evening daylight that always lingers at this time of year.

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.
