Panorama of the Windansea Beach hut in La Jolla just before sunrise. The sky is a  rich blue/magenta and the full moon is setting in the distance. The water from the ocean waves has come up onto the rocks.

The Story Behind the Photo

Despite how crowded San Diego is at times, the early mornings are special. I can go out to the beach and not have to worry about the traffic, parking, or running into people. I can walk along and enjoy it in solitude or I can stand and watch the waves crash over the rocks and sand.

This is the Windansea Beach hut. It's usually far back from the water's edge, but in the winter we get the king tides which drive the ocean waves way up onto the rocks. The king tides come and go with the full moon which is just about to set in the center of the frame.

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.
