The sun has set. The sky is dark, broodingly overcast but otherwise calm – or an impression of calmness is given by the length of the exposure. The rock is actually lit by spill from a remote house on a cliff approximately 250m away; giving an otherworldly feel to what could either be a mountain peak sitting in a sea of fog and catching the moon’s first rays, or a small outcropping in a tiny sea – the only way we can know which is by closely examining the black dots.

About the prints
Prints are made by Printmaster Wesley Wong of Giclee Art using our proprietary Ultraprint process, which delivers extremely high real resolutions – up to 720 pixels per inch, or four times that of an iPad’s Retina display, a wide gamut, and very smooth tonal transitions. We print on either Canson Infinity Platin Fiber Rag baryta or Permajet Portrait White depending on the subject matter and size using Epson Ultrachrome archival-grade inks.

  1. That is lovely. It probably looks amazing at proper sizes.

    Great shot. When you look at the horizon, the white line seems to dim and glow, fluctuate and grow…or maybe I’m just too tired 🙂

  3. I love the poetry of it and it’s questioning interpretation.
