Old Point Loma Lighthouse | Cabrillo National Monument

Sometimes it can be a bit hard to stick to your plan. I had been thinking about this composition for a while and I setup on the cliffs behind lighthouse looking towards the southeast and away from the setting sun. While I was waiting, the sky really started burning in the west but the clouds right above the lighthouse weren't being touched. I was so very tempted to change my composition and run over to the front of the lighthouse for the traditional picture but I decided to sit and wait. It seemed like forever, but it was probably only 10 minutes and then clouds above the lighthouse started glowing.

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.
