Zion's Watchman

302 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Zion National Park, Utah

The Watchman in Zion National Park is one of the areas most iconic and recognized feature. It sits prominently above the Southern entrance to the park and is part of a jagged ridge-line near The Watchman Campground. The bright colors of the rock that makeup this peak and the surrounding area are part of what makes this such a spectacular sight to behold.

To capture this VAST photo of The Watchman required that I stay camp in the park for a while. It was a priority for me that the leaves be changing color in the fall and have just the right level of yellow to add that extra bit of color to the final image. I was very lucky that the sunset proved to be as magical as it did, adding texture and color to the sky.

Those who visit Zion National Park are so enthralled by its physical beauty, that they often start planning their return visit before the first is even over. I am thrilled that I was able to capture even a sliver of its natural beauty and vibrancy in this VAST photo of The Watchman of Zion.

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.

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

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.
