This is a photo of Alcazar Garden in Balboa park looking at it from under a tall tree. In the foreground are the hedges which look like a maze. This leads to the California tower. At the top of the frame are the leaves and branches of the tree

The Maze | Alcazar Garden, Balboa Park, San Diego

I love this garden with its great views of the California Tower. I've been working on this specific composition for about a month, coming repeatedly mostly for sunset but once or twice for sunrise. I made perhaps about a dozen visits. But the weather and my schedule never cooperated until the day I managed to get this image.

After taking this photo a friend told me that the garden is patterned after one in Alcazar Castle in Seville, Spain. So one more spot added to my too visit list.

About the Prints

Edition of 50. Available in the following sizes:

24 x 36 inches

30 x 45 inches

40 x 60 inches

Medium: Archival pigment print with acrylic facemount


This is a pigment print where the front has been directly mounted with an adhesive to a sheet of ultra clear, scratch resistant, and non-reflective acrylic glass. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally resulting in a display with incredible visual depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to be back illuminated with the light emanating from the image itself. The print comes ready to hang with a hidden mount on the back that floats the print off the wall.

Please allow 4-5 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please contact me for international rates.
