A photo of a rainbow over the Hotel Del Coronado. The arch of the rainbow comes down right in the center of the hotel. There is a blue sky and the photo was taken in the later afternoon with warm yellow light bathing the hotel.

Somewhere | Hotel del Coronado

It's been a dream of mine to photograph a rainbow in San Diego but I kept missing them for a long time. They have been hard to capture as we simply don't have many rain days and you need to be in the right position just as the sun breaks through the clouds. They are fleeting and if you wait until you see it, the rainbow will be long gone by the time you can get to your subject.

I didn't realize this at the time but after I shared this picture a former city manager of Coronado told me that L. Frank Baum spent a considerable amount of time at the Del and it was in part the inspiration for the Emerald City.

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.
