As a photographer, sometimes you find yourself in the right place at the right time to witness something special. The weather can be unpredictable in San Francisco, but the clear conditions on Sept. 12, 2019 allowed me to capture this spectacular high resolution image of the Bay Bridge leading into the city, as viewed from my unique vantage point on Yerba Buena /Treasure Island.

There was an additional degree of good fortune in having the San Francisco Giants ballpark (Oracle Park) not only lit up, but centered perfectly between the two bridge piles.

I was very much out of my comfort zone just off the road at 10:30 at night with tour buses and semi trucks zipping by just a short distance from my tripod. Fortunately they were all successful in negotiating the curve behind me, and the risk paid huge dividends. I am thrilled to have this image, to produce some spectacular large prints.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
