I captured this stunning view in Big Sur a bit by chance. After making an impromptu turn off Highway 1 towards the Rocky Point restaurant, it was immediately obvious that I had work to do. On this clear, sunny day, the color of the blue in the Pacific Ocean was especially alluring. Furthermore, the orange and purple flora on the rocks was bathed in perfect light.

The fishermen on the cliff, more than a hundred feet up, demonstrate some serious bravery and add scale to the image in a unique way. Their contribution is most appreciated.

I photographed this scene on my birthday in 2016 while my cell phone buzzed with wishes from family members. After the images were acquired, we dined with a retired couple who picked up the tab for lunch at the restaurant. It doesn’t get better than that.

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 currency and 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.
