From above Ganges on Salt Spring Island looking over the Gulf Islands to Mount Baker and the Cascade Mountains on the USA mainland.
We finally ordered our own prints. They arrived yesterday so I got them on the wall and grabbed a quick iPhone photo.
These two form a stunning diptych; a view from Mount Tuam. The full set contains four images and currently resides on a client’s wall in Edmonton. But in our compact home I felt the middle two prints work best. And it was the only place where we had four feet of clear wall space.
The images were converted to black and white and printed on a true black and white, glossy archival paper. The print was then flush mounted on aluminum Dibond backing and sprayed with a protective matte finish. The finished product is clean, very light and simple to hang.
Unfortunately you just can’t get the true impression of the detail present, but the two images below might help (particularly if you are viewing on a ‘retina’ display — a modern high resolution screen) as this website now serves up higher resolution images if it detects an applicable display.
This set of two is available in any size to fit your space. Contact me if you are interested.
Early winter afternoon view from high on southern Salt Spring Island. We’re looking over Portland and Moresby islands to the right and Pender Island (with Saturna Island behind) on the left. Mount Baker and the North Cascade Mountains are putting on a snowy show down there in the USA.
The ferry in front of Portland Island is heading for Swartz Bay (near Victoria) on Vancouver Island. And, in the foreground, the Skeena Queen is chugging along towards Fulford Harbour on Salt Spring Island.
I believe we’re looking at, from foreground to background: South Pender Island (Pender Bluffs and the entrance to Bedwell Harbour), Saturna Island, Bellingham area in Washington State and Mount Baker.
This uncropped photo was taken from Mount Tuam on Salt Spring Island with a telephoto lens.

It's my goal to continue providing this service without ads through year nine. Help keep this website going by purchasing one custom print each year.
