A blood moon (full lunar eclipse) in Balboa Park. The moon and California Tower is framed by tree leaves and branches.

Under a Blood Moon | Balboa Park, San Diego

It's quite a sight to see a dark blood red moon in the sky. Although my left brain knows why the moon is red (due to the eclipse and the earth's atmosphere filtering out blue light), my right brain is telling me that this a momentous occasion signaling a change to come.

This photo was from the early morning hours of Jan 31, 2018. Technically it was a super, blood, blue moon. Super means that moon appears larger than normal because it's orbit takes it closer to the earth, blood due to the red color from the eclipse, and blue because it was the second full moon during the month.

About the Prints

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.
