365 megapixels! A very high resolution panorama photo of the San Francisco skyline with fog at sunrise; cityscape photograph created by Jeff Lewis in San Francisco, California

Little Bit Shy

365 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
San Francisco, California

There are a handful of views of San Francisco that have become extremely popular with photographers. All of them are beautiful, and worth a visit. But sometimes, once you've seen all of those... you feel an urge to try somewhere different.

A few months before, one of my friends and her son were headed off on a trip, and casually mentioned the $100 or so they'd set aside for a Lyft ride to catch their red-eye flight. I said NOPE, you are not paying for that. I will see you at 10pm at your place, and drive you! They were immensely grateful, and we had a great time. A week later, I picked them up, but I decided to leave home a few hours early and explore this new area on the way.

It turned out to be an amazing area, with multiple stunning vista points of the city and beyond. I knew I would have to return for fog someday.

Fast forward a month or so, and I've just returned home from a trip to Colorado, and I'm spending the night with family in San Jose. My partner has activities planned down south all day, so if I go out for sunrise, I need to get back as early as possible.

I remembered this spot I had found on the way to pick up my friend, checked a few webcams, and knew this was the day. As I pulled up to the trailhead, I knew the conditions were going to be perfect. I thanked my friend, for allowing me to take her to the airport, which in turn resulted in this unique image of San Francisco. One might call it karma.

This VAST photo shows the San Francisco skyline, peeking out from behind its rolling hills and a blanket of fog, featuring neighborhoods that are rarely spotlighted in photos. As the sun rose, it bathed the scene in stunning golden light, which was the lighting I chose for this image. This scene is similar to my other VAST photo, "Karma" -- but this one showcases a wider view, focusing less on downtown SF and more on the various neighborhoods of the city, and the surrounding hills. It needs to be seen large, and up close!

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
