The Jewel By The Bay: Wide B&W

686 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Treasure Island, San Francisco, California

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.

Photographic print

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.

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 blockchain encryption 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.
