The Majestic Canadian Rockies
This Photo Art of the Week belongs to Canadian photographer, Martin Pedersen. You’re looking at a 16”x24” Classic Silver Metal Print.
We asked Martin to tell us about his stunning photo. Here’s what he had to say, “It’s from Canmore, Alberta near Policeman Creek, which runs through town. The three peaks you see in the background to the right are The Three Sisters, well-known peaks in the Canadian Rockies. It was a cold October morning, cloudy with the sun trying to break through, so I tried to capture the mood and the reflection of The Three Sisters.” You can see more of Martin’s photo by visiting his website or his Instagram page.
The Three Sisters
Although you may have heard of The Three Sisters before, or maybe even been lucky enough to see them for yourself, here is some interesting information about these mountain peaks you may not have known:
Individually, The Three Sisters are known as Big Sister (Faith), Middle Sister (Charity), and Little Sister (Hope) but they weren’t always known as such. According to Peak Finder, “It was Albert Rogers, a nephew of Major Rogers, the discoverer of Roger's Pass in the Selkirk Mountains, who named the three peaks in 1883. He recalled, "There had been quite a heavy snowstorm in the night, and when we got up in the morning and looked out of the tent I noticed each of the three peaks had a heavy veil of snow on the north side and I said to the boys, 'Look at the Three Nuns.' They were called the Three Nuns for quite a while but later were called the 'Three Sisters,' more Protestant like I suppose." The name "Three Sisters" first appeared on Dr. George Dawson's map of 1886 and it is quite likely it was he who thought that the name Three Sisters would be more appropriate.”

The Three Sisters Printed on Metal
Martin made the fantastic choice to have his photo of The Three Sisters printed directly onto brushed aluminum. We offer three different types of Metal Prints—HD Metal, Classic White, and Classic Silver—with each one having its own unique characteristics. Our HD Metal Print, for example, is a high-gloss print made using the dye-sublimation process to infuse the inks into the top coating of the metal sheet. Our Classic White Metal Print, on the other hand, has a satin-matte finish and your photo is printed directly onto a white-coated aluminum panel. Martin’s print is a Classic Silver Metal Print. This product is unique because we print photos directly onto the brushed aluminum, so the raw metal is actually visible in areas of a photo where there’s white or low saturation. This type of custom photo art has a totally unique and artist look to it, and receives rave reviews from customers across Canada.
