Fireworks and Stars over Cannon Mountain
The night that I took this photo was redemption for a mistake that had been bugging me for two years. In February of 2020 I hung out in the wind on top of Bald Mountain and watched the torchlight parade and fireworks at Cannon Mountain. This was my first winter night hike and, at the time, I was very happy to have made the hike and taken the photos. And then I got home and found out that all off my photos of the fireworks and parade were out of focus.
In 2021, the parade and fireworks were cancelled because of COVID. The first torchlight parade and fireworks of 2022 had temperatures below zero and windchill values of -40. So, two years later, I again hiked up to Artists Bluff and Bald Mountain for sunset and was successful at taking a series of in-focus photos of the parade and fireworks. The clear skies and lack of moonlight that brought out the stars over the mountains was a huge bonus on top.
My personal favorite - the photograph is printed onto high-quality art canvas, coated with a protective acrylic finish, and stretched onto a 1.25” frame. Canvases include mounting hardware and are ready to hang in your home. I sign and title canvases on the back of the print.
I use 100% cotton acid- and lignin-free fine art paper with archival inks to produce a giclee print. These are museum quality prints that will last for decades without fading. The photograph is printed with a white border to allow for easy mounting and framing. I hand title and sign the border of each print in pencil.
The photograph is printed onto a specially coated sheet of aluminum using dye infusion. This brings out a stunning amount of color and clarity and is perfect for photos with lots of color and contrast. The final print includes a hanger which floats your print half an inch off the wall.
