256 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, and the San Francisco Bay; cityscape fine art photo created by Justin Katz from Battery Spencer in Sausalito, California

Golden Gate North Tower

298 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Battery Spencer, Sausalito, California
The Golden Gate Bridge connects my current home, San Francisco, with the county to the north where I grew up, Marin. It’s southernmost point, Battery Spencer is an old military bunker designed to protect against enemy ships attempting to enter the San Francisco Bay. As such, it has a commanding view of the famous Golden Gate Bridge and the entire surrounding area.

Having grown up here, I have seen this view (and photographed it) many times, always wanting to take a better photo than the previous one. However when framing the composition of this VAST photo, I wanted to be sure and do something unique. Instead of capturing the wide view of the entire area, I wanted to focus in on just the north tower of this iconic bridge, and really present it as a dramatic feature on the landscape.

Famous San Francisco landmarks like Coit Tower and the Transamerica Building can also clearly be seen through the suspension cables of the illuminated bridge. Additionally, this VAST photo captures a historical moment: the construction of the Salesforce Tower – the new tallest building on the Western coast of the United States. It will forever change the skyline of this famous city, and this photo captures that transitional moment in history.

The view from Battery Spencer offers a very classic photo of the Golden Gate Bridge. However, this classic scene of this incredible landmark has now been captured using the high quality VAST technique, enabling very large format prints of it to remain impeccably sharp.

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.
