Gary Haines, owner of Grizzly Creek Gallery in Georgetown, Colo., shot this prize-winning image, Winter Serenity, toward the end of a March day in one of his secret spots on a privately owned ranch between Ridgeway and Telluride, Colo.
The image was the first-place winner in the Landscape/Nature/Fine Art category of LexJet’s Shine On! Print Contest. Haines captured Colorado’s high-country beauty with his favorite camera, the Fuji GX617 Pro medium-format, panoramic landscape camera.
He says, “I chose to enter this image because I thought the LexJet Sunset Photo Metallic would show some of the sparkle I saw in the snow that day. When you print it on the Metallic, it’s awesome. It has a real nice pearlescence to it that you can’t get with any other photo paper.”
Printed on an Epson Stylus Pro 9900, a 20 in. x 60 in. print of Winter Serenity on LexJet Sunset Photo Metallic Paper is currently on display at the Denver Photo Art Gallery and another proudly hangs in his storefront window in downtown Georgetown. Haines also reproduced the image on Sunset Photo eSatin Paper.
