City lights illuminate the sky above the Salt Mission Ruins of Abo, New Mexico in this night photo.

Nightglow over Abó

Abó, New Mexico

While at first glance this might appear to be a sunset photo, it's actually the middle of the night. The glow behind the ruins is light from distant towns and cities north of Abó. This is a single, 20-second exposure (f/4, ISO 500, using hyperfocal distance). During the exposure I "painted" the ruins and grass with my flashlight to make them visible since they were effectively pitch black in the night.

ChromaLuxe™ Metal Prints

ChromaLuxe™ Metal Prints

ChromaLuxe™ HD metal prints are a visually stunning way to display your art. Unlike lower-quality metal prints, ChromaLuxe™ HD prints are made using a process of heat infusion, pressure, and time to permanently sublimate inks into the metal. This requires more time and precision, and hence costs more to produce. HD metal prints offer unparalleled reproduction of details, vibrant colors, and durability. HD Metal Prints are also surprisingly light and easy to hang with the included cleat and level. Options include matte or gloss finish; if you expect to hang your image near a bright window, consider matte for reduced glare. Mount options include a flush silver or black side, as well as a recessed aluminum float mount (floating 3/4" off the wall). Frames are available; please contact us for a quote if you are interested in framing.

Please allow three weeks for production and delivery.
