Rainbow appearing over the downtown skyline in San Diego.

Hope | Skyline from Harbor Island, San Diego

A brilliant rainbow momentarily appears above the San Diego skyline as a storm breaks and sunlight filters through the clouds. The downtown building glow with reflected light.

The Story Behind the Photo

This has been rough year for many and Covid-19 has thrown a monkey wrench into all of our plans. So much anxiety about the health of family and not even being able to see them in person because either they are in high risk groups or there were travel restrictions. But when I saw this rainbow and was able to photograph it, I felt like the year had started to turn around. It was something I've been chasing for a while but hadn't managed to photograph and it made me feel hopeful. A few days later Pfizer announced a highly successful phase 3 trial for a vaccine candidate.

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.
