Pillar of Fire

Vik, Iceland

In late December, off of a lonely road in southern Iceland, I stood alone in the bitter cold and watched the aurora borealis dance in the sky. First it appeared as vast waving green lights, then a touch of yellow appeared followed by a red pillar reaching down from the sky and landing on a distant farm.

Have you ever had an experience, perhaps an encounter with beauty that was more than any words could convey? John O'Donohue writes, "We feel most alive in the presence of the Beautiful for it meets the needs of our soul. For a while...we glimpse behind the shudder of appearances the sure form of things.". This was how I felt that night.

Pillar of Fire print

The print only option is the most affordable route to go. It is just what it sounds like: prints on high quality archival photographic paper without any mounting or framing. One of the benefits of going this route is that you can bring them to your local frame shop to have the matted and framed exactly as you like. Prints are also great if you are in a hurry as they usually arrive in 5-7 days from the time of order.

Select a print size:


This mounting option is by far our most popular format. It is both durable and beautiful. It allows the images to reveal an almost three dimensional quality creating the impression of actually being there. This is because there is almost no glare or reflection such as you find with even the most expensive types of glass. An additional benefit is that the artwork is very durable and can even be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. The artwork also resists fading because it has UV protection. When you order a plaque from us, they arrive ready to hang.

Select a print size:

You can order prints in various formats such as print only, plaque, framed plaque, acrylic or matted. Upon special request, we also offer our prints in canvas.

For more information about the display options, please see the prints page.
