632 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo of a redwood forest; fine art nature photo created by Justin Katz in Montgomery Woods State Reserve, California

Walking Among Giants

632 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Montgomery Woods State Reserve, California

The Montgomery Redwood Grove is one of only a handful of old-growth redwood groves that were protected from the heavy logging that took place in Northern California in the early 20th century. After the 1906 earthquake, the fires that consumed all of San Francisco meant that the city had to be rebuilt, and that meant lumber. Where there used to be endless groves of gigantic coastal redwoods throughout the Pacific Northwest, now there are only a handful left, preserved by forward-thinking land owners.

How to you capture scale? How do you convey in a photograph the true sense of how enormous the ancient coastal redwood trees of Northern California are? The truth is that it is only in displaying this VAST Print at such large sizes, as only VAST photos are capable of, that this sense of scale and enormity of these ancient trees can be appreciated.

My goal with this VAST photo was to recreate a sense of what it is like to actually walk amongst these magnificent, giant redwood trees. When displayed as a VAST Print on a wall, the viewer can feel like they are there, standing among the giant redwoods. The goal to create this sensation is is what drove me to capture this scene.

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.
