176 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo of a beautiful sunset over the ocean; created by Jim Tarpo in Laguna Beach, California

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.

Photographic print

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.

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 blockchain encryption 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.
