The story

I don’t think I had ever rode a bike at night, no lights, no road, no worries, until now… It just sounds like a tremendously stupid thing to do, so please use your lights at night!!! That said, a stage like Alvord Desert, a remote 12×7 miles flat as a pancake dry lake bed in Southern Oregon seemed like the perfect place for it. This is the place you carry extra gas with you, just in case…

I simply got on the bike, and didn’t feel the need to disturb the peace of the place with my lights, not something intentional, but as I started riding, knowing there’s nothing to stop you no matter where you turn or for how long you go (within reasonable limits) and at the same time barely seeing the floor other than by skyglow and starlight… it was pretty cool. I suggest you try it, then you tell me about it!

Talk about starlight, Alvord Desert can claim to be one of the most – if not the most – isolated area from light pollution in the continental US. Looking and being under that starry sky was an absolute delight. Of couse, the picture here was staged and I was posing still for about 20 seconds, it’s not part of the ride itself.

Fuji Pearl paper is a super high gloss finish, archival paper. It has a better gloss than glossy photo paper, thicker paper and it contains pigments and other materials that give purer whites and sharper, better defined highlights. We ship our prints flat, not rolled, regardless of the size.

Metal prints are a modern and visually striking way to display photographs. The printing process involves infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets, resulting in vibrant and durable prints with a unique, high-gloss finish. Metal prints are always shipped ready to hang.
