Big Springs was more of a gauntlet and a challenge than I expected.

I first hiked the narrows in my late teenage years... I think. Maybe it was when I was 22, but I am pretty sure it was earlier. The first trips I only went up a mile or so. On my second round of exploration I hiked up to Orderville Slot canyon and went up as far as I could go. Then came the winter adventures and I hiked up to the Imlay Boulder. Then for what ever reason, that became the top. I have hiked up to the Imlay boulder over 4 times now, but this year I was determined to make it to Big Springs.

If you are unfamiliar Big Springs is the top of the bottom up route of the Narrows. It is 4.5 miles of river walking one direction about 10.5 miles including the river walk and the round trip. The hike was brutal because of my ankle, and to my surprise some very deep water. But after hiking for 3+ hours one way I made it to the end of the line, Big Springs. You know what, it was pretty cool. Photo © copyright by Nathan St. Andre.

HD Metal Prints

Big Springs print

Luxury fine art metal prints are todays standard for presenting fine art landscape photography. They are high quality, durable, and archival making them a great addition for your home. All metal prints come with a float mount and a wire hanger up to 30x45. After 30x45 I switch to a cleat mount system that provides a safer more secure method for your metal print.

If your print is going to be within a room with significant amount of wall space dedicated to windows, I recommend printing your metal print with a matte finish to remove excessive reflection and glare. The quality of the image is still stunning, but the image lacks the reflective surface resulting in a less shiny finish.

Canvas prints are an excellent option for individuals looking for affordable yet beautiful images for your home. Canvas prints are wrapped around a wooden frame with a wire hanger on the back for quick hanging. All images are archival.

If you already have canvas prints within your room where this image will be going, I recommend sticking with the canvas prints. If you want a more stunning and high quality viewing experience I recommend upgrading to the metal or acrylic printing option.

Luxury Acrylic Lumacrome

Big Springs print

The Lumachrome process is engineered to overcome and surpass the limitations of traditional Fujiflex chromagenic processes and inkjet processes. Details appear to emerge in 3D from the depths of the image with the Lumachrome process thanks to the transparency layer that is infused with iridium particles and is encapsulated in a layer suspended between the white poly surface and Acrylic.

Due to the in-depth process of printing, expect up to six weeks before you image is shipped.
