Sunset from Plateau Point

Grand Canyon National Park

Sunset over the Grand Canyon and Colorado River, from Plateau Point. It's a 12-mile roundtrip hike to reach this viewpoint located 3,000 feet below the South Rim. The river is 1,300 feet below and in the distance is Horn Creek Rapid at mile 90.8 on the river. The rapid is rated as a 7 to 9, and at lower water, this rapid forms very large waves and is considered one of the most difficult in the canyon. The Grand Canyon section of the Colorado River, like several other big-water Western rivers, uses a scale of 1-10 for rapids, 10 being the most difficult.

My hiking partners and I hiked a couple more miles before sunset exploring along the Tonto Plateau. After sunset, we made the long hike back in the darkness to the South Rim, and we were the only hikers on the trail. Near the top of the trail, we had a chance encounter with a mountain lion who hurriedly crossed our path. Just another great day at the Grand Canyon.

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)
