196 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of Marin County at night; landscape photograph created by Jeff Lewis in Marin County, California

The Twinkling Lights

196 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Marin County, California

During my time living in Marin County, I have discovered countless vistas and compositions that have rarely or never before been professionally photographed. Some are in areas that thousands of people pass every day, and others are on remote wilderness trails. Beauty truly is all around us.

One idea I had last year was to spend a few nights on Angel Island, with its spectacular views in all directions. I wanted to watch a sunset from the mountaintop, and capture a panorama of San Francisco and the North Bay. The problem is, the only way to watch a sunset here is to book a campsite, and the only reliable way to book a campsite is to do so several months out. This means, of course, we have no control over the weather. We were just hoping to not be fogged out the entire time (which is a very real possibility in this area).

Almost 6 months later, my partner and I boarded the ferry and backpacked into our campsite. Just from our tent window, we enjoyed incredible views spanning from San Francisco to the Golden Gate. On the two nights we stayed on the island, something very special happened. Nature gifted us not just one, but TWO absolutely spectacular sunsets. I was stunned after the first one, and even more stunned after this second one. I knew I had to capture every detail of it, and thankfully I had brought my full setup to take this VAST photo!

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.
