Only In Dreams

Waimea Canyon, Kaua'i, Hawai'i

"Only In Dreams"

I'm really not sure where to start with this image. This is the end. The end of a 3 day expedition to the bottom of Waimea Canyon on Kauai's west side. Mark Twain called Waimea Canyon the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. I've never been to the Grand Canyon but have seen photos (yea that sounded lame) and I'll take the color of Waimea any day :P

The hike out of the canyon is intense. Almost 3000 vertical feet in about 3 miles. Sections of the trail are nearing 30 degrees. This normally would just be just hard add rain. Lots of rain.

After getting to the top of one of the longest steep sections of the trail the rain broke. We stopped to have a drink and snack and then it happened. Clouds started lifting. If this was the only image I got in the 3 day trip I would have been stoked (luckily there are a LOT more). The fresh rain caused the colors to become super saturated and the clouds a mystical feel to the scene.

Watching the clouds move over the ridge to our right the rest of the hike, approx 1.5mi, was done in the heaviest rain I've ever hiked in.

Lumachrome HD Acrylic Facemount - Float Mount

 print preview

Using the latest in paper technology, Lumachrome HD, this is the ultimate modern display technique. These prints are face mounted to a piece of 1/8" archival acrylic. The finish creates an image full of depth and rich in color. The high gloss finish of the acrylic makes the image stand out and reveals the finest details of the print below. Since the print is fully sealed against the acrylic this mounting technique can significantly improve the archival life of the image particularly in high humidity environments. ***Available in Non-glare acrylic. Please email after checkout if you would prefer this option!***

Dye Infused Metal Print - Float Mount

 print preview

New medium for a new age. Metal prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by sublimating dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused onto the surface and not on it your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. Truly stunning detail and resolution giving a 3D or HD appearance to the photo. Standard option is the "float" mount which hangs the images on the wall appearing to float on it's own. Our metal prints come mounted on 2mm black Styrene and finished with a black Metal Inset Frame. ***Semi-gloss & Satin are available upon request. Please email after checkout if you would prefer this option!***
