Ice cave with a view |North Cascades, Washington

 Fine art photograph of an ice cave near Granite Falls, WA. Big Four Ice Cave are a yield of Big Four Mountain. The photograph looks out at the North Cascade mountains, snow-covered, during sunset. The photograph is panoramic in shape and has many concentric rings in composition. A ring made by the ice, the snow, the pine tree forest, the light. The colors are blue, pink, white, and green.

I spent about an hour in the ice cave with my friend and my dog.  At the back of the cave is a waterfall with a skylight that remain among the most surreal experiences of my life.  As I was leaving I saw the sky softening and the pink hues on lips of the clouds.  I made it about as far as the trees before turning back toward the cave. I had that feeling that this was going to be special.  So, I waited and counted, with trepidation, the cave kisses dropping on me and my camera.

Note**  On December 27th, a day after I was here, an avalanche occurred in this cave.

About the prints: I print on a premium substrate that is unparalleled in depth and luminosity. The material refracts light in such a way that light travels laterally through the paper as well as reflects to the audience creating a brilliant effect that many mistake to be rear illumination. Each print is then face mounted to acrylic and sandwiched to a protective backing. The artwork is then framed or a recessed mount is added to the back to float on the wall. I offer Tabacchino and other handmade framing options.Available starting  20”x40” 30”60” 36”x72” 40”x80” 48”x96” and custom sizes. Below are examples in 4” frames with and without liners. More arrangements are available. Liners are available in Black, White, Beige. See FRAMES in the menu above for more frames and liner options.
