This is one of those shots that surprised me. During my residency in Toronto I spent some time playing with long exposures, of which this is an example. I was out on this pier late one night, looking out at lake Ontario and I decided to see what long exposure would do to water at night. After my first shot I was shocked to see this odd glow on the horizon. If I didn't know better, I'd say it was a sunset, except that I was facing pretty much due south. So after a couple more shots I got this image, which I deduced was light pollution (probably from Niagra and/or Buffalo). It was such a surreal experience and it's a perfect example of what I enjoy about photography: with my naked eyes, I couldn't see any of that horizon light, but the camera allowed me to see in a new way. I also appreciate the color in this shot, specifically the contrast between rich violet hues and the glowing yellow horizon.
The 8x10 and 16x20 inch prints are printed on high quality satin paper (halfway between glossy and matte) with archival inks. You supply the frame to match your decor, although I'd recommend the classic black frame with a 2" white matte.
The 20x30 inch option is printed directly on canvas, which is then stretched over the frame for a finished gallery wrap that is ready to hang. There's no need to buy a frame or worry about glass breaking. The outside edges of the gallery wrap are black, for a polished look that draws attention to the image on the front.

Thanks for buying a print. You should expect to see it in the mail in about a week, or a little longer if you ordered it on canvas.
