Mount Sinyella After the Rain

Grand Canyon National Park

The highpoint in this image is Mount Sinyella, considered to be the center of the universe according to Havasupai legend. I made this photograph from the Colorado River in Grand Canyon National Park while on an 18-day rafting expedition. It had been raining and the visibility downriver was obscured when I began to see a faint hint of light through the rain. The silhouette of Mount Sinyella began to take shape as the storm lifted. Seeing a great location to setup just upstream of our location, I asked the boatman if he could fight the current and get us there. While he rowed I was frantically unpacking my high-resolution camera and a tripod from their safe place in a dry bag.

It probably only took a minute or so to get the camera unpacked and for us to reach the shoreline, but in that time the rain had stopped and the canyon walls were now being bathed in warm sunlight. I managed to make just a couple photos before the clouds completely cleared and the dreamy sense of atmosphere in the canyon had burned off. If you look closely, you can see faint specs in the water where rain drops are falling into the Colorado River. © Adam Schallau, All Rights Reserved.

TruLife® Acrylic Fine Art Print | Contemporary Float

TruLife® Acrylic Fine Art Print | Contemporary Float

The TruLife® Fine Art Acrylic print is the ultimate in print presentation today. Thanks to Lumachrome printing technology, details appear to emerge from the depths of the image, which brings unbelievable resolution, clarity, and vibrancy with incredible 3-dimensional quality that can appear backlit and holographic under the proper lighting. Large format acrylic prints make stunning statement pieces.

The print is encapsulated between museum-grade TruLife® acrylic and rigid Komatex backing. TruLife® is a museum-grade crystal clear, scratch-resistant, and non-reflective acrylic that preserves the print's finest details and allows its vibrancy to shine through without a loss of quality.

Finally, the print is finished with a 1.35" deep Italian-made Roma recessed floating frame. The recessed frame mounts to a French cleat and floats the print off the wall for a clean, ready-to-hang, contemporary look that is certain to be perfect for any decor. (more info)

Fine Art Canvas | Gallery Wrap

Canvas gallery wraps are printed directly onto museum-quality canvas material using high-quality archival inks. A Lustre Laminate is applied to each piece to protect the surface of the print in order to minimize glare and reflections on the print. The print is then wrapped with a mirrored edge around an artist's stretcher frame, and finished with a wire hanger so that it's ready to hang. (more info)
