Capitol Peak on Fire (2018)

Aspen, Colorado

In September, 2018, I experienced one of the most exhilarating moments from my photography adventures to date. My friend and I backpacked into the wilderness to a remote location near Carbondale and Aspen, Colorado that he had found on Google Earth. We chose this location for its unique vantage of 14,131 ft. Capitol Peak and hoped there would be a nice pairing of autumn color to go with that view. We spent hours on this remote ridge looking for the absolute best compositions. A storm rolled through the area and we both thought our chances of photographing Capitol Peak at sunset were ruined until at the very last moment of light created by the setting sun, a beam of intense red light cast amazing color across the west and south faces of 14er Capitol Peak - sublime! The amount of red in the rock was absolutely intense and fabulous. The thin band of yellow aspen trees at the bottom of the scene create a nice anchor for one of the best photographs I've ever taken. A more unique and dynamic image of Capitol Peak does not exist.

Acrylic Fine Art Print - Ready To Hang

Capitol Peak on Fire (2018) print

This is the most incredible finished product that I offer. 

Your fine art is carefully placed behind an acrylic glazing and another archival substrate. This is the premier presentation system for bringing detail, color and tonal range to life in a way that traditional photo framing cannot. For this presentation style, world-class polyester photographic material is used for amazing color and longevity.

These works of art are Face Mounted on lens-grade optically clear 1/8″ TruLife Anti-Reflective acrylic. This revolutionary product delivers the highest-resolution viewing experience of photographic artwork available today. TruLife acrylic is also abrasion-resistant, helping preserve the life of the print. With lifelike colors, incredible depth and clarity, TruLife is the best way to show high quality art. The edges are hand polished for a crystal clear look. The Acrylic Face Mount comes ready to hang with a z-bar hanging system. An acrylic face mount piece of art will look great against most any wall type.

ChromaLuxe Fine Art Metal Print - Ready To Hang

Capitol Peak on Fire (2018) print

ChromaLuxe Metal Prints are produced using Dye Sublimation technology to infuse inks into specialized aluminum plates that have been finished with a fine multiple layer polymer. ChromaLuxe’s archival qualities, image brilliance, and durability make it an excellent all-around choice. 

Two metal surfaces are available - a glossy surface with more pop and saturation (albeit with more glare and reflective properties), and a mid-gloss satin surface with similar color intensity and detail as the glossy option, with reduced glare. By default I print on glossy unless you indicate otherwise by contacting me. 

My ChromaLuxe metal prints are finished with a float mount system on the reverse and either a z-bar or wire for effortless hanging on delivery. No exterior framing is required.

* Free shipping for all U.S. orders! Please contact me for international shipping fees. Please allow 2-3 weeks for production and delivery.

The process of printing on this medium can rarely result in defects in the print medium that are barely noticeable. This is not something that can be controlled in the lab.
