262 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the San Francisco skyline and the San Francisco Bay Bridge at sunset; cityscape photograph created by Chris Blake in Treasure Island, San Francisco

The iconic San Francisco Bay Bridge took just over three years and $77 million dollars to complete in the mid 1930’s. Providing passage from San Francisco to Oakland to over 94 million vehicles per year it is one of the longest spans in the United States. The eastern section of the bridge was just rebuilt in 2013. Designed by Charles H Purcell it has long stood as a magnificent example of suspension bridges.

Treasure Island in San Francisco affords a unique view of the always impressive Bay Bridge. Finding the right spot to be able to get this view was not easy, the island was mostly derelict years ago and today is now being built up with office and apartment buildings thanks to remediation efforts to remove dirt and topsoil contaminated with radiation due to the years of use by the US Navy.

This view of the bridge leading into San Francisco features some of the most notable landmarks. The Hills Brothers Coffee company has called their iconic brick building location home for just shy of 100 years. The beautifully lit Salesforce building is currently the largest building in San Francisco. You can see the Transamerica pyramid piercing the early evening sky. I love the way the Port of San Francisco lights up the waters of the Bay along with the exquisite backdrop provided by the sky’s magnificent blue hour.

Our canvas material has a delightfully matte finish that looks spectacular in any lighting conditions while retaining maximum vibrancy and contrast. Click here to learn more.

Printed onto heavyweight, 100% acid-free fine art canvas to preserve color-accuracy and longevity
Created using materials and methods that exceed the rigorous technical standards required to achieve the prized "giclée" industry rating
Designed to meet the most demanding standards for color-permanence set by leading museums
Handmade by award-winning master printmakers with over 4 decades of experience

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
