For a few weeks during late fall and early winter the sun sets directly over Catalina Island when viewed from the coast of Laguna Beach. The winter season also seems to produce the most spectacular sunsets of the year for the west coast of Southern California. This stunning and dramatic ocean sunset photograph, taken on January 1, 2016, has a very special place in my portfolio. I have always viewed it as an inspirational gift on the first day of that year.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed currency and military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

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.
