Needle Mountains from Molass Lake

Molass Lake Park, near Silverton, San Juan Mountains, Colorado

The Needle Mountains are a subrange of the San Juan Mountains of the Rocky Mountains located in the southwestern part of the US State of Colorado. Much of the range is protected in Weminuche Wilderness of the San Juan National Forrest. The range is notable for having some of the most rugged mountains in the state, and includes many technical climbs and scrambles.

Despite their impressive appearance from Molas Pass between Durango and Silverton, most hikers pass by the twisted, slabby West Needle Mountains on their way to somewhere else. Too bad, because one of Colorado's best peak bagging weekends is a climb of the three Twilight Peaks—North, Central, and South are each slightly more than 13,000 feet high.

The picture was taken with a Nikon Coolpix P80.

Fine Art Print (Print Only)

Needle Mountains from Molass Lake print

My print only orders are printed on Fine art archival ink print, sometimes referred to as "giclee" prints using museum quality Hahnemühle Photo Rag Pearl a natural white, 100% cotton paper-guarantees archival standards with a pearl-finish. The bright white of FineArt Pearl enables impressive contrasts and pictorial depth in black and white or color photography. The special coating provides the pearl-finish.

MegaPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

MegaPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

This is a modern method of mounting images, also known as “MegaPlaq” which brings an element of substance and dimension to plaque mounted art as it is finished with a one (1) inch deep beveled edge. The substantial nature of the mounted image can be seen from any angle when displayed. Art is mounted on a thick recycled, eco-friendly wood substrate, acid-free surface and finished with a black beveled edge.  The backside is hollowed out to reduce weight and conceal a convenient “French” cleat hanging system allowing the MegaPlaq to hang securely, flush against a wall.  The image is sealed with a special semi-matte UV laminate, which both protects the print and makes it moisture resistant.  The emi-matte UV finish reduces reflections while maintaining excellent image clarity and contrasts.

PlexiPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

PlexiPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

This outstanding display method (sometimes called “Diasec”) provides the glossy metallic paper images with unbeatably crystal-clear, three-dimensional feel as the picture is seen through the acrylic. The Artwork is mounted to the back of art-grade, UV protected, and scratch-resistant acrylic giving the artwork a look that is as durable as it is unique.  A 0.125 inch black, acid-free board is provided on the back of Standard PlexiPlaq to fully encase and protect face mounted artwork.  The edge is finished with a frosted beveled edge to accent the mounted artwork. To accentuate the dimensionality of artwork, a “French” cleat hanging system is applied to the backside of the PlexiPlaq for mounting.  The end result is an image the effectively “floats” half an inch off the wall.
