Alone in a Crowd

308 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Marin Headlands, California

This one's a bit funny. I had hiked up a mountain and had a beautiful foreground beneath me, but when the sunset light came, I was immediately drawn to just the sky. So, this VAST photo features the sky, front and center!

As a meteorologist, this is my time to geek out, and share with you what makes this scene unique! What you see is largely a blanket of altocumulus clouds. Altocumulus clouds are small "puffs" of clouds that are formed by small pockets of air rising in the mid-levels of the atmosphere. They are often referred to as a "mackerel sky", and they can make for some of the most spectacular sunsets.

You might have noticed, however: one of the clouds is not like the rest. This large wispy cloud is in the center of a fallstreak hole, also known as a hole punch cloud. Such holes form through a fairly complex process when the water temperature in the clouds is below freezing, but the water has not frozen yet.

It sure was exciting to see these patterns -- and even more exciting to see them at sunset, creating a canvas for the sun to light up in a rainbow of colors!

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
