About the photo:
I love the stars. I don’t know about you but whenever I look up into the night sky, there’s a certain peace that comes over me. Don’t get me wrong, there’s also a sense of wonder, sense of nervousness and even a little hesitation. But despite all that, I'm drawn to it.
Astrophotography is probably one of my favorites. I love being able to capture what the eye can only imagine. And in order to capture an image like this, you have to find a location that has limited to no light pollution and that’s not that easy these days. That’s where I found myself this night.
In the middle of nowhere in Southwest Virginia, the nearest “big city” 2 hours away, I waited for the Milky Way to align with this tree I had scouted earlier.
With the tripod set, the Milky Way aligned I took the photo. 1 long exposure photo and it was done! The scene captured with Jupiter sitting just to the left. A perfect night sky to gaze upon!
Images are infused into specially coated surfaces, providing the most durable and longest lasting print medium. The aluminum panels are extremely durable, offering scratch and abrasion resistance without hiding your image behind glass. Sublimation metal also offers the highest fade resistance compared to every other photo medium.
Dye-sublimation printing is a computer printing technique which uses heat to transfer dye onto many materials. In order to transfer the image from the paper to the aluminum, it requires a heat press process that is a combination of time, temperature and pressure. The heat press applies this special combination, to “transfer” the sublimation dyes at the molecular level into the aluminum.
The images are fade resistant- the latest testing shows they will last a lifetime with resistance to yellowing and climate damage. They are chemical resistant- the surfaces can be cleaned with ammonia, bleach, acetone or any all-purpose cleaner. The images are also moisture resistant.
The aluminum is .045" thick and is finished with a float mount on the back for hanging. The Aluminum panels are lightweight, durable, and made with recycled material and 100% recyclable.
