Panoramic view of the Coronado Bridge at sunrise from Tidelands park. The calm water reflects the colorful red and orange tones of the sky.

The Story Behind the Photo

For a whole month I had been getting up early and heading to Tidelands park to try and capture a sunrise panorama of the Coronado bridge. The first time I came here, I was fogged out and I didn't even see this composition until the sun was far too high. The next time the sunrise was not as colorful as I had hoped. Third time I had a great sunrise but the reflections from the sky looked very odd in the water due to the cloud placement. I also dropped my expensive 6-stop neutral density filter (for long exposures) and it shattered. But I’m not one to give up and eventually I got this shot which I'm very happy with.

Acrylic Fine Art Print with a Float Mount — Ready to Hang

Trulife Acrylic Fine Art Print

This is a photographic print where the front has been directly adhered to a sheet of TruLife acrylic which is an ultra clear, scratch resistant, and anti-reflective glazing. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally and bounces it off the surface of the print resulting in a display with incredible depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to have light emanating from the image itself. The back of the print is sealed with another layer of protective acrylic.

The print comes ready to hang with hidden mounting hardware on the back that makes the print appear as if it is floating in front of the wall. No additional framing is needed. Choose this medium for a modern and minimalist presentation.

Print is signed on the back.

Please allow 4-6 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please inquire for international rates.
