Canyon Roads

Waimea Canyon | Kauai, Hawaii

The rainbow above Waimea Canyon and the sun lighting up parts of the Canyon in golden light caught my attention.

Waimea Canyon, also known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" is 10 miles (16km) long and 3000 feet (900m) deep and is located on the western side of Kauai Island. The Canyon offers lots of spectacular views from tropical cliffs, gorgeous waterfall cascades to beautiful foliage. Its landscape is like the rest of Kauai Island of volcanic origin and was formed by steady erosion and a collapse of part of the volcanic island about 5 million years ago. Its name "Waimea" translates to "reddish water" and originated from the rainwater and erosion that altered the Canyon's once black color to red. Photo © copyright by Claudia Lungauer.

Lumachrome HD TruLife Acrylic Prints

Lumachrome HD TruLife Acrylic Prints

Lumachrome HD is a fairly new printing method. I was truly impressed by the vibrant colors, breathtaking details and sharpness reflected in the prints. This printing solution is pricier but by far my favorite. It is the best possible way to display high end art, giving the viewer the feeling as almost being at the scene when looking at the picture.

The process starts by producing a photographic print that is then face mounted from behind to a sheet of crystal clear, scratch resistant and non reflective acrylic glass. Images printed in this way have an almost 3D quality that show an unbelievable resolution, dynamic range and incredible vibrant colors which makes these prints the best luxury fine art prints available. The Lumachrome HD Acrylic Print is finished using a “float Mount” system, creating a ready to hang work of art that does not require exterior framing.

Fuji Flex High Gloss (paper only)

Canyon Roads print

My favorite paper to print on is Fuji Flex high gloss paper, using a modern Océ LightJet printing process. It is a silver halide, true photographic printing material on a polyester base creating depth and dimensionality, which reflects more light and makes the colors deeper and richer than any other papers. This is the golden standard for creating stunning gallery-level prints and is used for fine art landscapes and cityscapes prints.
