The Platinum Series - Glacial Lake Abstract II

Icelandic Highlands

While it may look like an impressionistic or abstract painting, this is actually a photograph. This image was captured of colourful glacial lakes in Iceland's Highlands. The silt from glaciers transforms pools of water into glorious turquoise jewels.

The image is part of my Platinum Series; a collection of original photographs offered in editions of one. That means, the image is offered in one size and finish, and once purchased, the original transparency or digital file (whatever the source was), gets destroyed so that no future prints can be made.

Dye Infused - RAW (Matte) Aluminum

Dye Infused - RAW (Matte) Aluminum


The gold standard for high end gallery-worthy presentation is dye-infused aluminum. These images have unparalleled vibrance, detail, and luminescence forged by a unique process where the image is separated into dye pigments and 'baked' directly into a sheet of aluminum using intense heat and pressure. The result is a high definition type of appearance with colour saturation like no other. The ultra-hard surface is scratch-resistant, waterproof and can be cleaned easily with any commercial glass cleaner.

For the RAW (Matte) option, we use a 100% recycled, brilliant white surface to reproduce every detail and achieve the maximum wow factor all while at the same time being as green as possible. Unlike our highly polished option which can be highly reflective, the RAW finish offers a matte finish which is ideal for seeing the great detail and texture captured in my high resolution images all without the reflection.

To finish the piece, the aluminum sheet is then flush mounted to an aluminum frame (usually black, although we also use silver for certain images) and delivered display-ready with hanging hardware attached. The flush mount frame we feel is essential to safely mount, and support all edges of the Aluminum sheet. 

If you are located outside of the USA, please contact us first for pieces larger than 40" on the shortest dimension, or larger than 60" on the longest dimension to see if shipping is available and for a quote on that freight cost.
