This view of a sunrise behind Cloud's Rest is from the Cables route on Half Dome. This unique view point offered up one of the best sunrises of my life and definitely of my 2017 guiding season. As guests focused on their struggle up the cables, I had a hard time taking my attention off of the mind blowing sunrise unfolding before my eyes. John Muir was quiet accurate when he proposed the new name of the Sierra Nevadas to be the Range of Light.
This photo will be printed by a commercial print house that I’ve used for close to a decade and has been in operation since the 1970’s. This is an actual photographic print on Kodak Professional Supra Endura VC Digital paper with a lustre finish, which will last over 100 years in normal display conditions. This process is slightly more expensive than a common inkjet print, but offers an extremely high quality reproduction with exceptional longevity of the print. The print will come pre-mounted to a piece of heavyweight matboard, making it ready to be placed in any frame. If you would like it without the matboard, just let me know after purchasing. Prints usually arrive within 2 weeks of ordering. Shipping is only available within the United States.
