Few of Watkins’ Columbia River photographs depict nature without at least some indication of human presence. This image is an exception. In choosing where to place his camera and how to frame the view, Watkins portrays a world of elemental states – stone, water, air – a scene so barren as to suggest that this is the way our world looked before living things evolved. Although made in 1867, the photograph allows our imaginations to reach much further back in time.

The photographs in Wild Beauty were meticulously restored and carefully prepared for print reproduction in order to capture the detail and tonal range of the original images. These beautiful archival inkjet prints are made to order from the restored digital files. Our standard sizes denote the paper size; a small border is left around the image to make framing easier. Custom sizes are easily produced, though, and priced by the square inch; if you would like to inquire about a custom size, please contact us.
