Le Cap d'Agde en Violet

120 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Le Cap d'Agde, Hérault, Occitanie, France

It takes very special weather conditions that can only be found during a certain time of year to get this colorful of a sunset with a clear view of the Canigou (seen on the horizon at the right third of the image) from Cap d'Agde (the foreground rocks). During most of the year, especially during summertime, the Canigou is obscured from all the atmospheric haze brought about from the high humidity of the region. In order to observe a scene like this, there must be clear weather at the surface between Agde, the Canigou, and where the sun is setting, yet low enough clouds that the light refracts and creates a kaleidoscope of colors from golden yellow to deep purple.
I love to use this time of year to create moody images such as this one, which uses the low golden light to juxtapose the smooth surface of the water with the rugged volcanic rocks and the warm light of the setting sun with the cool color of the low hanging clouds and their reflection on the water.

Print only

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.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

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 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. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.
