Boston Custom House Sunset

2,916 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Boston, Massachusetts

It is nearly impossible to think of Boston, Massachusetts and not think of its spectacular history. This sunset image was taken from the top floor of a parking garage across the street from the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The Light Art Installation known as the Color Commons, can be seen glowing pink, these lights can be controlled by text message from your phone. Directly across the street is the Flour and Grain Building built in the mid 1890s and is sometimes referred to as the Boston Chamber of Commerce Building.

To the right you can see the iconic clock tower of the Boston Custom House, the tower was added to the original building in 1915. The tower made this the tallest building in Boston until 1964 when the Prudential Tower was finished. As the sun was setting it illuminated the magnificent clouds over the city and the lights began coming on in all the buildings around us.

This VAST image is compromised of over 160 individual photographs. Since this was taken right at sunset the light and conditions where changing quickly. I had to work fast in order to capture ever detail in the scene before the light changed to drastically.

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.
