High-quality canvas art prints are also known as a "giclee."
This printing technique utilizes the very best archival inks and materials for long-lasting images that will not fade over time. Color is vivid and very closely matches that of my original transparency film on which they were created. They almost glow with a life of their own!
After printing, they are coated with a matte finish that not only adds to the longevity but creates a surface free of reflection so that they look great in any lighting conditions... even by candle light!
The prints are done in a "gallery-wrap" fashion where the image is carried around the edge for a unique minimalist effect when displaying. If you have another look in mind, they are also great for framing!

"Spirit Dancers" Homer, Alaska
This crowning image is taken about 20 seconds after the image "Electric Angels" demonstrating how dynamic the ever-changing auroras can be.
With a bright "super moon" having just risen behind me I turned my "Megaview" camera to the north and exposed a sheet of 4x5 inch film. The camera has a 180 degree circular field of view so everything up, dow, east and west is captired in one unusual image with stunnimmng detail in this early March scene.
"Heavens Above" Ninilchik, Alaska
I arrived just in time to see the aurora overhead and pointed my "megaview" camera up to capture the aurora over the Russian Orthodox Church on this mid-October night.
"Third Wave I" Homer, Alaska
The aurora can come and go several times duuring the course of a long night. This was to be the third wave of activity around 1:00 as seen from our driveway in early March. I used the "Megaview " camera to capture the whole sky.
"Third Wave II" Homer, Alaska
Taken a minute after "Third Wave I", you can see how the aurora has changed having developed a bit of fleeting red. It had entered "breakup" where suddenly a narrow overhead band began to expand and fill the sky. The bright, full moon is visible over our house as the stars of the "Big Dipper" shine straight overhead. (center of the image)
"Third Wave III" Homer, Alaska
This is when the "Megaview" comes in handy, when the aurora is filling the whole sky and there is no other way to take it all in. Imagine yourself laying on your back and looking up. The sky becomes a big dome as the horizon curves around you.
"Ion Butterfly" Captain Cook State Park, Kenai Peninsula
A little over a day before I took this image of this incredibly bright and colorful aurora in late March, the sun had unleashed a solar flair that literally pegged the meters and its accociated coronal mass ejection was headed right for us. Then the weather turned to ... well it was bad. In desparation I drove white-knuckeld all night and was finally rewarded just before dawn with a big clearing and the most incredible sight in my career. This event was visible clear down into the tropics, a once in a century occurance! All I can say is Wow!

"Star Trails Over Russian Church" Ninilchik, Alaska
The aurora was just a faint glow on the northern horizon on this April night, so I took advantage of the lull by capturing the motion of the Earth in the form of star trails. This is a 2-1/2 hour exposure over the Russian Church with the entire northern sky spinning arouind our "north star," Polaris.
"Anchorage, City of Light" Anchorage, Alaska
Anchorage comes aglow during "magic time" as the first stars become visible during deep twilight. It is at this time that the snow, ice and water pick up and reflect the deep indigo-blue from the sky above. The Chugach mountains beyond are illuminated with "alpenglow" the light of dusk in the west during this late March exposure.
