The Shores at Big Sur

455 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Big Sur, California

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.

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.
