James Peak Wilderness Area, Colorado
A summit view from James Peak, aka "The James" on the last day of winter. Straddling the Continental Divide with Longs Peak (14,255') in Rocky Mountain National Park at the top of the frame, snowpack covers the top of the Rockies. Snowmelt that flows east (RH side of frame) is destined for the South Platte River Watershed, while snowmelt on the west flows to the Fraser River, the first tributary to join the mainstream of the Colorado River. But, water rights are complex, and 60% of Fraser River gets diverted to Denver for green lawns, a long-standing water fight for citizens of the Fraser Valley and the health of their river. There's a big water story in this frame. Where does your water come from? Photo © copyright by Dave Showalter.
My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted. All prints are signed.
The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
I work to make the best possible custom prints. All of my print preparation is done in-house and I personally inspect every print before I sign and ship the prints. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
