The Mt Soledad Veteran's Memorial in La Jolla. The cross is set against a light blue sky just before sunset. The sun is about to disappear from the horizon and is just barely able to light up the edge of the clouds in the sky.

Edge of Light | Mt Soledad National Veterans Memorial

The last rays of sunlight illuminate the clouds above the Mt Soledad Veteran’s Memorial. A small crowd of people sit on the monument to watch the sunset.

The Story Behind the Photo

I took this photo during the summer but it sat in my files for several months. I initially thought that perhaps I would reshoot this scene with a more dramatic sunset, but as I kept revisiting the photos from that day I realized that a more colorful sunset would detract from the image. To me, this image is all about the fading of the light at the end of the day.

Acrylic Fine Art Print with a Float Mount — Ready to Hang

Trulife Acrylic Fine Art Print

This is a photographic print where the front has been directly adhered to a sheet of TruLife acrylic which is an ultra clear, scratch resistant, and anti-reflective glazing. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally and bounces it off the surface of the print resulting in a display with incredible depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to have light emanating from the image itself. The back of the print is sealed with another layer of protective acrylic.

The print comes ready to hang with hidden mounting hardware on the back that makes the print appear as if it is floating in front of the wall. No additional framing is needed. Choose this medium for a modern and minimalist presentation.

Print is signed on the back.

Please allow 4-6 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please inquire for international rates.
