The moon setting over the Children’s pool in La Jolla.

Moonset at the Children’s Pool | La Jolla

This is the full moon setting over the Children's pool in La Jolla. I had been talking with a friend about shooting the moon setting over the Children's pool for at least a year, maybe even two years now. But we never managed to do so. Bad weather, schedule conflicts, or sometimes just needing a little more sleep.

The prior night I checked the weather forecast and although it wasn't really promising with 40% cloud cover forecasted we decided to come out at anyway just because you never know. Got here a little bit after 5AM and the weather conditions were perfect. A slight haze to soften the moon but it stayed visible almost to the horizon.

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.
