Photo description: I took this shot from the frontier town of Talkeetna, Alaska, during a beautiful September sunset while every birch, cottonwood, poplar, aspen & willow tree was raging in shades of gold & yellow. It was “Alaska Gold” as far as the eye could see. Over 50 miles away and jutting high into the clear blue skies is the Alaska Range and its well known trio of peaks, from left-to-right; Mts. Foraker, Hunter & the crown jewel, Denali, the tallest mountain in North America at 20,310’.
Local photographer Todd Salat is known across Alaska for his photos of the aurora borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, as well as breath-taking Alaska landscapes. His preferred medium, metal, allows for high definition and an almost 3-D effect. The inks are dye-infused onto a specially coated aluminum in a 400 degree heat press and sealed with a gemlike UV coating that is both waterproof and scratch resistant. These metal prints come in multiple sizes and some come in triptych or pentatych, which mean the photo stretches across either 3 or 5 pieces respectively. Additionally, all metal prints come ready to hang.
