This photograph was captured in the Great Smoky Mountains on a cold November morning in 2020. This photo highlights a spruce-fir forest, which typically occupies the higher elevations of the Southern Appalachian Mountains and is a relic of the last ice age. Many of the trees along this trail are dead or are in the process of dying as a result of the balsam woolly adelgid, a tiny insect introduced from Europe in the early 1900s that infests and kills Fraser firs.
Printed on Red River's UltraPro Luster 300 paper, this brilliant, bold white paper features a deep luster texture. These key elements are excellent at reproducing deep blacks and higher contrast. They also give images a wider color gamut and smoother tonal transitions. The luster finish texture will help reduce glare when framed and hung, and because the paper is a thicker stock, it will also help prevent wear.
