Mt Jefferson Wilderness, Oregon Cascades
Fine Art Limited Edition of 100 - The Milky Way and millions of other stars rise above Mt Jefferson, an alpine lake and a field of summer wildflowers (Indian paintbrush and heather) in the Mt Jefferson Wilderness of Oregon. Over the past 15 years, I have visited this special location several times and have developed a deep connection with this mountain paradise. My goal with this image was to capture the feeling of solitude and unending time that I often experience when I see the Milky Way Galaxy in the wilderness. I feel very lucky to have spent a night out watching the stars in Jefferson Park in the summer of 2019. At the time, I had no idea this area would be directly impacted by a wildfire (Lionshead fire) the following year. In September 2020, are rare and intense Pacific Northwest windstorm created 50-60+ mph east winds and humidity in the single digits. As the winds intensified, several wildfires burning on the Western slopes of the Cascade Range turned into raging infernos which burned more than 1 million acres of Oregon forest in 3 days. The fires eventually pushed into several towns in the Cascade foothills which led to catastrophic loss of life and property. More than 500,000 Oregonians were displaced by the fires and it breaks my heart to think about the impact that the fires have had on each one of these people. © 2019 by Scott Smorra

Luxury Series | Lumachrome TruLife® Acrylic Print | Ready to Hang
Lumachrome TruLife® Acrylic prints are one of the highest quality prints available on the market today. Acrylic has amazing light penetration and refraction properties, which leads to more vibrant and sharper photos than photos displayed behind traditional glass. The Lumachrome HD print is mounted directly to a 1/8" sheet of TruLife® high performance, anti-reflective, scratch resistant acrylic. Behind the print is another sheet of 1/8” acrylic and a Roma wood rear frame floater mount which floats the print off the wall. The final product is exhibition quality and is absolutely stunning to see in person. These prints are delivered ready-to-hang, which eliminates the cost of traditional matting and framing. Just remove the print from the protective shipping container and the print is ready to hang on the wall. The TruLife® Acrylic used for these prints is perfect for rooms with lots of windows or bright lights, since the glare is minimized.
