Rising dramatically above the river on the north side, not far past Rooster Rock, is the imposing, half-mile-long cliff face of Cape Horn. It appears that Watkins made this photograph from the deck of the steamer. In 2002 this classic image was selected for reproduction as one of the set of twenty “Masters of American Photography” stamps issued by the U.S. Postal Service.

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.
