I normally shoot Mono Lake during the winter months, when there are almost no people to photobomb extended shots, or other photographers to crowd. But conditions looked promising at the end of June, with the possibility of a flamboyant sunset and sunrise, and a clear night of stars before the moon rose and washed out the sky. Sunset and sunrise were beautiful, though shooting locations and sky conditions did not line up quite as well as hoped. And at night, cloud cover lingered well into early dawn, enough to impede star visibility, but not enough to prevent the moon from washing out the sky. Still, there were times when the night was beautiful. This image, Latteo, was one of them. Light was first recorded at 2:40am. The Milky Way's galactic core was on the other side of the sky, but that does not detract from this piece. Bridgeport's city lights, about 20 miles away, faintly illuminated the clouds, but not enough to be seen by the naked eye. The outcome is a dreamy, fantasy view of Mono Lake's South Tufa Tower at night.
A note about the media: As with all our artwork, we offer this piece in the medium or media we feel is best suited for its emotional connection. We generally find that most colors and details are most vividly conveyed through our Radiant finish. It's more brilliant and detailed than either acrylic or metal. We also offer this piece in Claritas, our acrylic block available in one or more of three sizes, depending on the art itself. It is ideally suited for the desktop, kitchen window, bathroom counter, or mantle.
Some of our larger pieces are also offered in polyptychs of different configurations on Fabrika, a museum quality cloth onto which color-matched inks are directly printed and bonded with a lustre finish for archival protection.
Whether a limited edition, or open edition radiant print or a Claritas gift, none of our artwork is an off-the-shelf Amazon Prime® delivery item. From order to shipment is usually a 10-day process, each step of which you will be kept apprised.
Shipping is free within the continental United States on all art. First time print collectors also receive free global shipping.
Otherwise, global shipping [outside the Continental US] is priced on a per piece basis.
