Matkat Surprise

Grand Canyon National Park

A gorgeous waterfall in the towering narrows of Matkatamiba Canyon. This side canyon is a short hike from river mile 148.4 on the Colorado River within Grand Canyon National Park.

An amusing anecdote about this photo…I was setting up my shot with the camera on the tripod when the water flowing through the creek began to slow down, and within a minute it was nothing more than a trickle. As I was almost done getting things set up when I heard a bunch of guys upstream of me somewhere “whooping and hollering” and then I heard the water coming. It turns out that they were using their bodies to collectively damn the creek and didn’t think about the people that might be downstream of them. Before I could realize what was about to happen, a wall of water came rushing down this cascade slamming into me and my camera. It knocked me off my feet and sent the camera tumbling over into the rocks. All in all, it was just another day as a nature photographer.

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)
