Cloud Wanderer is a photo of the full moon about to set beneath a sea of white clouds.

Cloud Wanderer | Moonset over San Diego

This is the full moon setting over San Diego. There was a heavy cloud layer over the city and as I was driving to Mt Helix I started doubting whether the trip was going to be worthwhile. Thankfully the clouds were at low altitude and the top was just high enough to break through. I took this photo a few minutes before sunrise yielding a golden hue to the moon and the Belt of Venus was producing the most wonderful pink glow in the sky.

In Greek mythology, Selene is the goddess of the moon (also known as Luna in ancient Roman religion). She drives her silver chariot with two snow-white horses across the night sky. I imagine her living a lonely existance wandering above the sea of clouds.

About the Prints

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.
