Boston Winter Sunset Longfellow Bridge

1,159 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Boston, Massachusetts

This VAST photo was taken on a cold February evening in Cambridge looking towards the West End of Boston. This winterscape features the Longfellow Bridge and much of the Back Bay.. Originally built in the 1790’s the Longfellow Bridge was redesigned by Edmund Wheelwright. While not the most famous Boston architect he also designed the Jordan Hall and the Harvard Lampoon Building. The bridge was finished in 1906 and was originally called the Cambridge Bridge. In recent years it has undergone massive renovations to restore it to its former glory.

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. The color and pattern of the lights indicate the Boston weather forecast.

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. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.
