This escarpment is about two miles west of the village at Celilo. One of the defining photographs of its age, Watkins’ image juxtaposes the raw beauty of the American West with a vision of pioneer enterprise – symbolized by the promise and prospects of the railroad – that speaks to the aspirations of Manifest Destiny.

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.
