Emerald Pools Summer Tranquility

Zion National Park, Utah

Emerald Pools is one of the iconic hikes of Zion, though most never experience it while it is running in full glory. Though I live right outside the park, I have seen emerald pools running at full capacity about 10 times total. But in those ten times, I have only ever seen it once in the summer running at full capacity many years ago.

Well 2023 has graced us with some surprise weather events including one hurricane and some extreme thunder storms. And in a surprise twist, we were given multiple days of large rain storms from morning till dusk. On one of these such days I ventured back into Zion to photograph some of my favorite falls, Emerald Pools and those at Temple of Sinewava. Luckily for me, Emerald Pools put on a show for me. I just had to get absolutely drenched. Good thing that my camera is weather sealed and didn't have any issues the entire time. Photo © copyright by Nathan St. Andre.

HD Metal Prints

Emerald Pools Summer Tranquility 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

Emerald Pools Summer Tranquility 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.

Fine Art Luster Paper

Fine art luster paper is an affordable way to begin enjoying my work. Fine art luster paper is locally printed supporting local businesses here in the State of Utah. Images do not come matted or framed leaving the door open to how ever you want your images to be displayed.
