Los Angeles, as the largest city in California, is such a vast metropole that its sheer size is a challenging capture to fit in one frame – unless it is a VAST photo taken at Griffith Observatory in the local Hollywood hills.

The view from Griffith Observatory upon an awakening Los Angeles is just stunning: you get views of the Central Business District (CBD), Hollywood, Beverly Hills, planes approaching Los Angeles International Airport, Santa Monica, and more. Lights in the city slowly transform with the colors of sunrise.

It is always an absolute pleasure for me to witness a big city go 'to sleep' at night or to 'wake up' in the morning. Even big cities such as Los Angeles feel somewhat calm during these special times.

A memorable treat was to hear the coyotes in Griffith Park howling during sunrise as I created this exceptionally high resolution VAST photo.

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.
