Here is a close-up of the frame, if chosen, used for each of the prints in all of the collections.
No matter the size of the print the frame remains the same 1-1/4 inches profile width but the white mat is 1-1/2 inches for the small size, 2 inches for the medium size and 3 inches for the large size to retain a proper aesthetic proportion.
Smooth Matte Black wood
no visible grain
Picture sizes are: small (6X9—with frame and mat 9X12), medium (8X12—with frame and mat 14X18), and large (12X18—with frame and mat 18X24).
The Vista house From the Washington Side
This is The Vista House on Crown Point as seen from the Washington side.
I spent several hours trying to locate the perfect spot to capture the Vista House along with the seldom seen (from the Oregon side) seasonal creek and waterfall. I finally found a great spot and waited a couple hours for the best lighting. Finally, during the last hour of daylight, I took a series of shots and this was my favorite one.
I absolutely love the textures and colors in the Columbia River Gorge and this picture is a prime example of it.
Crown Point Vertical
Crown Point with the Vista House in the vertical orientation.
Overlooking the Columbia River with a spectacular cloud formation reflecting the sun rise, this picture encapsulates the beauty that Highway 30 was created for.
The Vista House
One might think that it is called the "Vista" House because it's so beautiful to look at, however, the views of the Columbia River and the Gorge from here are awesome to behold!
The rock wall seen in the foreground is a good example of walls and benches seen all along highway 30. Beautiful in and of itself it reminds you of a bygone era where aesthetics were an important enough consideration that investing extra resources was worth it.
Multnomah Falls from Right
Taken from a different angle than the standard "straight on" view this picture places the great waterfall in context with the deep colors of the rain forest.
During early Spring is my favorite time to take waterfall pictures because the leaves haven't yet blocked all the views and the water flow is at it's highest.
Vista House horizontal from Oregon
This is the Columbia River Gorge and the grandeur and beauty of this area is why Highway 30 was created as a scenic byway in the first place. Right smack in the middle of the picture is the Vista House resting on Crown Point itself. The day I took this picture the early morning sun played a light show through stormy clouds that created a great depth and color intensity especially when printed onmetallic paper.
