A photo of Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach during a low tide. The sand has a thin layer of water covering it and acts like a mirror and reflects the clouds. This photo was taken just before sunset and the clouds have a warm glow.

Reflections | Pacific Beach, San Diego

Every year in December I go to Pacific Beach to photograph the Christmas tree at the end of the pier. This year, I came well before sunset and the lights hadn't been turned on yet. But there was this wonderful glow in the sky as the setting sun lit up the clouds. There was also a low tide that left the sand covered in a thin layer of water that made the surface reflect the sky like a mirror.

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.
