Sunrise Explosion

Clingman's Dome, Smoky Mountains NP

Smoky Mountains Fine Art Photography

A Limited Edition photograph of a firey red and pink sunrise at Clingman's Dome in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

I had been in the park for a week in the fall, but had nothing but clear blue skies every day. It was so frustrating that I couldn't get even the slightest opportunity for a sunrise or sunset image up at Clingman's Dome.

On our last day, when I had to head for the airport by 10am, the clouds finally came in and gave us this amazing sunrise. As you stand there waiting for sunrise, you really can't tell if the clouds are going to absorb the sun and turn red. You can only wait and hope. When it happened, I worked it hard taking as many exposures as I could in the brief minute or two of color.

This was the best of them all and this Explosion of Color made the wait all week worthwhile!


This Fine Art Landscape photograph of sunrise at Clingman's Dome in Great Smoky Mountains National Park can be purchased in one of four museum quality print styles as shown below. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Lumachrome® HD Trulife® Acrylic Print, Ready to Hang

Lumachrome® HD Trulife® Acrylic Print, Ready to Hang

I offer the finest acrylic print in the world, the Lumachrome® HD Acrylic Print using TruLife® acrylic. The Lumachrome® process is engineered to overcome and surpass the limitations of traditional Fujiflex chromagenic and other inkjet processes.

Details appear to emerge in 3D from the depths of the image with the Lumachrome® process of a transparency layer that is infused with iridium particles and is encapsulated in a layer suspended between the while poly surface and the TruLife® acrylic.

This incredible print is then adhered to a second sheet of acrylic glass, thoroughly isolating it from all elemental damage. The finishing touch is the attachment of a rear HD 1.375 inch thick Roma Moulding floating frame, which allows it to appear to “float” on the wall.

Trulife® acrylic is an innovative, single sided, anti-reflective and abrasion resistant acrylic. It virtually eliminates reflections, blocks up to 99% of UV rays, has a hard coat that protects against scratches and cleans like glass.

For more information and examples, please see the Print Options and Custom Framing pages.

Lumachrome® HD Trulife® Acrylic Framed Print

Lumachrome® HD Trulife® Acrylic Framed Print print preview

Adding a handmade Roma Moulding Italian wood frame to the Lumachrome® HD Trulife® Acrylic Print is the ultimate in the presentation of a photographic print. This artwork includes a 4 inch wide Roma Tabacchino frame and a 3 inch black or white linen liner.These are identical to the previously described Lumachrome Prints, but without the rear floating frame.

The frame and liner add 14 inches to both the horizontal and vertical dimensions of a print. For example, a 30 x 45 inch print will have framed dimensions of 44 x 59 inches. If a framed example is shown here, it is a representation of a print 30 inches on the short side.

For more information and examples, please see the Print Options and Custom Framing pages.

If you are interested in a Roma Moulding different from the options shows, please contact me and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Fujicolor Crystal Archive Pearl Print, Ready for Framing

Fujicolor Crystal Archive Pearl Print, Ready for Framing

These Limited Edition Fine Art Prints are made using Fuji Crystal Archive Digital Pearl paper. Which in our opinion, is the finest paper available for use with Landscape and Wildlife Photographs. Pearl-like crystals give silver halide color prints a specific luster, creating a distinctive pearl-like appearance, which is sure to capture your attention.

This glossy surface offers sharp detail, high intensity colors, and a distinctive pearl-like appearance. The prints are mounted to a 2mm black Styrene backing that resists warping, making it an excellent choice for adding durability and providing rigidity for framing.

If you need a larger print size, please contact me for additional options. Please note that any prints larger than 40 inches are shipped rolled in tubes.
