603 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the Boston skyline at sunset; cityscape photograph created by Chris Blake in Boston, Massachusetts

Sunset East Boston

603 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Boston, Massachusetts

Boston at almost any time of day is picturesque but the Boston Harbor area just before sunset is stunning. The Vast image features all the best of the area, you can see the New England Aquarium off to the left, the historic Union and Lincoln Wharf buildings in the middle and Battery Wharf to the left. The white steeple of the Old North Church once chosen as the beacon for “One if by land, two if by sea” as it was the tallest building at the time, now it can be seen poking up between the modern buildings.

The Custom House Tower seen just behind the Marriott Long Wharf building is one of the most iconic buildings on Commercial St. The Custom House was built in 1849 and the Tower was added in the early 1900’s and dominated the Boston Skyline as the tallest building until the Prudential Tower was completed. Cranes can be seen building new buildings amongst the old and ever changing skyline.

This VAST image was created just past sunset from a park in East Boston. The sky came alive with color and the reflected light made everything glow a warm red. It's amazing what has happened to the area. Not many years ago the area was full of dilapidated factories and empty lots. Now that people have caught on to the fact that it provides maybe the best views of the city the area has been completely reborn. With condos, shops and new parks. It's a truly wonderful place to see the sunset over the city.

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.
