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 dreamy image.

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 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.
