Rolling into Bliss

639 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Central Valley, California

The almond blossoms in California's Central Valley are a spectacular sight each February. The tricky part is, most of the valley is very flat, so it's difficult to find a location from which to photograph them in a way that shows the beautiful surrounding landscape. After extensive scouting, I discovered an area several years ago that had excellent rolling hills, but views from the ground were limited. That year, I used UAVs to capture them from the sky. The photos are spectacular, and one of them is featured in a double-page spread in the 2022 California Visitor's Guide -- but I always wanted something I could print huge on a wall. So the hunt continued.

This year, I finally found it, scouting on the way back from another trip to confirm this was the location I wanted. The only thing left was to wait for the perfect light to capture the scene. California is a sunny state, and the perfect clouds may come just once (or not at all!) during the short period of peak bloom. Thankfully, I'm a meteorologist, and I knew several days in advance which day this would be. I drove over from the Bay Area in rain and hail, and barely had time to enjoy the view before the perfect light burst through the thick stormy clouds. The camera came out, and this is the result!

This image is part of my Awaken series, which showcases the beauty of little-known areas, with the goal of inspiring locals to explore and love our backyard. As of the time of publishing, there is no other image like this in existence. There will undoubtedly be attempts to duplicate it, but few will succeed with the conditions and method required for a large print. As with most images in the Awaken series, serious buyers may choose to have the location revealed to them. I hope you enjoy it!

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.
