73 megapixels! A very high resolution VAST photo of the National Mall and the Washington Monument reflected in the Reflecting Pools at dusk; created by Dan Piech

Washington DC's many reflecting pools represent fantastic opportunities to capture the stunning monuments and parks that populate the city. They do this especially well during the gloaming, which is the time of day when the very last traces of twilight remain in the sky.

Washington DC's streetlights have a warmer hue than most other cities, causing the gloaming to have a more orange/red/purple color than usual. Additionally, because the city has less light pollution than other equally-important cities due to its smaller scale, the stars are visible earlier in the evening. Combine all of these elements and you have a recipe for a beautiful, dreamy image.

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.
