Parallels, Palouse Falls - Art Print
Product Details: "Parallels" art print by Paul Miller produced on Somerset Velvet Paper. Velvet paper offers vivid color reproduction and deep, rich blacks for amazing contrast. With a texture that gently softens the overall effect, it adds an extra hint of warmth to reproductions of oils and pastels and a softer edge to photography.
All art prints include a 1" white border around the image to allow for future framing and matting, if desired.
Image Details: I visited Palouse Falls, the official state waterfall in Washington State. The water cascades down a drop of 198 feet into a pool below, as the Palouse River winds its way through ancient canyons before joining the Snake River four miles downstream.
I was immediately struck by the sheer height and depth of the waterfall and its surrounding cliffs. After tiptoeing around the different vantage points to find my shot, I set my tripod up on the edge of a cliff over 350 feet above the pool. I took separate exposures of the canyon foreground before panning my camera upward to catch the stars as they traveled across the horizon. Thankfully the clouds behaved and the wind quieted down at night. I was worried about my camera setup (not to mention myself) being swept off the edge, to never be seen again except in the local news as a warning to other tourists and photographers. Mercifully, morning came and I shimmied away from the cliff edge unscathed.
