Valley of the moon in Jacumba. This photo is taken at night and above the rock formations you can see the core of the Milky Way.

Hidden Valley | Jacumba, California

This weekend I headed out to Jacumba and the Valley of the Moon with a friend to do some hiking, exploring, and of course photographing. It was hot, 94F, when we started hiking and we were faced with a brutal uphill climb at first. Thankfully it cooled off pretty quickly as the sun started to set. The rest of the hike was uneventful -- I was worried about rattlesnakes but didn't see any. The trail was also a little confusing with many turnoffs and forks but thank god for offline GPS maps. We found this hidden gem right by the border with Mexico.

About the Prints

Edition of 50. Available in the following sizes:

24 x 30 inches

32 x 40 inches

48 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.
