The Sierra Nevada certainly have mountains that are objectively more impressive than these. However, as the sun was setting on a late-winter day, I noticed the pleasing balance of trees and snow throughout this scene. Many mountains have either treeless tops or tree-covered tops. These were speckled with trees, however - great material for a VAST Photo.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
