Sunset in Eastern Sierras

125 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Alabama Hills, Lone Pine, California
The high desert of California is significantly underappreciated. The vast majority of people who have ever encountered this bizarre landscape, only do so in passing. They drive through the small towns on highway 395 with the mountains in the distance, and don’t even think about stopping. It’s for this reason that I was pretty excited to head down the Alabama Hills for a shoot with the production crew of CreativeLive.

We were there to film an advanced online course on night photography techniques; teaching people how to capture the Milky Way, star trails, and light painting. It was the perfect location for that kind of photography, because of the complete lack of light pollution, absence of other people, and completely clear skies.

Over the three nights that we were there in the Alabama Hills, we saw a lot of amazing things. Beyond the incredibly bright and vivid Milky Way, we watched the sun set dramatically over the Sierras, and we saw an incredibly active meteor shower.

This shot was taken on the first evening, right as the sun began to set over the Sierras to the West. As it did, it cast an incredible glow into the valley where we were, and beams of light began to make their way through the mountainous peaks and through the remaining clouds. The purpose of us being there was to capture the Milky Way, but this VAST photo ended up becoming my favorite shot from the entire trip.

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.
