The Best Capitol Peak Photograph Ever Made

Capitol Peak on Fire (2018)

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. We chose this location for its unique vantage of one of my favorite fourteeners - 14,131 ft. Capitol Peak.

I 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 art print of Capitol Peak does not exist.

Your fine art is printed on FujiFlex Crystal Archive - a polyester-based silver halide material which creates stunning gallery-quality color prints. This medium shows the full depth and color range as I experienced and looks absolutely stunning.

Once printed, the FujiFlex is placed behind TruLife acrylic and on top of another acrylic archival substrate. A special adhesive called Diasec is used to bond the fine art print to the acrylic. Unlike other methods of adhesion used by other photographers, Diasec is engineered to never separate, bubble, peel, or fail, so you can know your artwork will last several lifetimes. Also unlike other acrylic prints from other photographers, this mounting method prevents bowing of the print which is caused by expansion and contraction of the acrylic.

Your fine art is 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 99% UV resistant and scratch resistant, helping preserve the life of the print.

Ambient and directed light that shines through the face of these prints is accentuated by the acrylic glass, creating a 3-D or back-lit feel that will absolutely astonish you. To fully enjoy the benefits of an acrylic print, it should be properly lit - while TruLife is anti-reflective, it is almost impossible to eliminate all glare.

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.
