A fractured rock formation at Sunset Cliffs that looks like a puzzle.

Puzzle | Tidepools at Sunset Cliffs

I went out to Garbage beach at the south end of Sunset Cliffs for sunset. I have been out here a few times before but never managed to shoot this rock formation which I think looks like a puzzle. I knew from my prior trips that the tide (at about 2') would be just right for the photo I had in mind: I wanted the rock formation with the pools of water reflecting the last bit of sunlight. However I didn't want the water to be disturbed by incoming waves.

About the Prints

Edition of 50. Available in the following sizes:

24 x 30 inches

32 x 40 inches

48 x 60 inches

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.
