The weather didn’t cooperate for one evening of a night photography workshop I was teaching, so we found some other interesting things to shoot. This is a small beaver pond near Eagle Lake on Mount Desert Island, Maine during civil twilight around 8PM on May 17, 2015. It was very windy with rolling fog blowing through, making it a challenge to shoot panoramas. But I love a good challenge and the layers of fog gave an extra depth to the image.

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing.
