Boston Longfellow Bridge and Clouds

663 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Longfellow Bridge, Boston, Massachusetts

This image of the Longfellow Bridge in Boston was taken from the Cambridge side of the river. The Longfellow is a landmark of Boston, construction began in 1900 and first opened to traffic in 1906. The bridge allowed for automobile traffic and was built with streetcar tracks along one side. Today those tracks are traveled by the MBTA Redline. Unfortunately over the next 100 years the bridge fell into disrepair. It wasn’t until 2013 when a three year long reconstruction plan, along with a $255 million dollar budget would allow for a major overhaul to begin. Luckily they were able to address the significant structural issues while maintaining the historic character of one of Boston’s most important historic bridges. The bridge has also been called the “salt and pepper shaker bridge” after the 4 granite towers you can see in the photo, all 4 towers were part of the restoration project.

Beyond the bridge you can see Back Bay with the John Hancock Tower and the Prudential Buildings towering over the city below. The Berkeley Building, affectionately known as the “Old John Hancock Building,” can be seen just to the left of the John Hancock tower. The Berkeley Building is best known for its lighted weather beacon. A 65 foot tall tower that was installed on the roof in 1950.

This VAST photo was created on a cold and stormy spring night in Boston. I had to be quick taking the 36 photos that compromise this VAST image. The clouds were moving quickly and the light was changing by the minute.

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.
