"Grunion Spawning"

no. 20100430_0098

Doheny State Beach, CA

During spring and summer months for the four consecutive nights after full and no moon thousands of little wriggling silver fish called Grunion come ashore to mate and lay eggs on flat sandy beaches in southern California. This was a particularly dense group of fish I found on Doheny State Beach around 1am during one of the spring runs. The illumination comes from the mostly full moon, and a headlamp to highlight the flopping fish.

Fine Art Print, Print Only

Grunion Spawning print

Fine art archival ink print, personally printed and signed by me on Harman Glossy Baryta paper, which features a lightly textured rich and glossy surface.

Floating Mount, Ready to Hang

With this elegant and affordable mounting option the fine art print is professionally mounted to an eco- friendly HDF wood board and sealed with a special UV laminate, which protects the print and reduces glare. The finished piece hangs half an inch in front of the wall, appearing to float in the air.

Framed Print, Ready to Hang

My framed prints are different from traditional styles, eliminating the need for glass. The fine art print is professionally mounted to a thin eco-friendly HDF wood board and sealed with a special UV laminate, which protects the print and reduces glare. The mounted print is set in a simple and elegant black frame, ready to hang, and enjoy under any lighting conditions.

Deluxe Framed Print, Ready to Hang

My favorite style, similar to the Framed Print above, but with a large deluxe frame (pictured left) that emphasizes the natural beauty of my photographs. Because there is no glass, there is minimal glare, making this option ideal for places with mixed lighting and large windows.

Acrylic-Glass Mounted, Ready to Hang

With this stunning display method, a vibrant metallic fine art print is professionally mounted face-first onto 3/16" museum-grade UV protected and scratch resistant plexiglass. A french-cleat hanging system allows the print to float 1/2" off the wall.
