A puffy cumulous cloud centered over the rock formations at hospitals break in La Jolla.

Low Tide | Hospitals Reef, La Jolla

I woke up at 4am to give myself enough time to reach Hospitals Reef and catch the setting moon before the sunrise. Initially I was focused on photographing the moon and it's reflection in the tidepools, but as it got lighter I noticed this amazing rock revealed by the low (negative) tide. The sky also cooperated nicely and gave me a gorgeous puffy cloud centered above the rock. I absolutely love the La Jolla coast because every time you go, the tides reveal different parts of the landscape.

About the Prints

Edition of 50. Available in the following sizes:

24 x 36 inches

30 x 45 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.
