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.

Traditional fine art prints are created using archival pigment inks on a museum-grade acid-free paper. This combination of paper and ink results in a print with beautiful color and the finest detail.

Lumachrome Fine Art Acrylic Print - Ready to Hang

Lumachrome fine art prints represent the ultimate in fine art photographic presentation today.

Thanks to a transparency layer that is infused with iridium particles and is encapsulated in a layer suspended between the print surface and the acrylic, details appear to emerge from the depths of the image which brings unbelievable resolution, clarity, and vibrancy with an incredible 3-dimensional quality. The end result is a piece of art that can give the appearance of radiating light from within.

The quality of a Lumachrome fine art piece truly must be seen to be appreciated.

Your Lumachrome is delivered ready to hang with a recessed back-mounted molding which floats the print approximately 1.3″ off the wall for a clean contemporary look which is perfect for any decor.
