Supermoon at Tilikum Crossing

Portland, Oregon

One new and prominent feature in Portland, Oregon is the Tilikum Crossing, which is near the Marquam Bridge. I spent a night there under the Marquam Bridge to photograph the Supermoon in Portland. Tilikum Crossing aka Bridge of the People is a bridge constructed to span the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. The crossing opened in the fall of 2015 and is designed to withstand a large, powerful Earthquake.

TriMet selected the name of the bridge in April 2014 from a list of four finalists chosen by the public. Tilikum is a Chinook Jargon word meaning people, tribe, or family, and the name is intended to honor the Multnomah, Cascade, Clackamas, and other Chinookan peoples who lived in the area as long as 14,000 years ago. The Tilikum name also references the pervasive use of Chinook Jargon in Portland’s first half century in the frequent trade interactions between pioneers and Native Americans.

This fine art photograph was taken at blue hour with a large telephoto lens using precise planning and execution to get the moon perched in the perfect spot above the bridge.

This is the most incredible finished product that I offer. 

Your fine art is carefully placed behind an acrylic glazing and another archival substrate. This is the premier presentation system for bringing detail, color and tonal range to life in a way that traditional photo framing cannot. For this presentation style, world-class polyester photographic material is used for amazing color and longevity.

This revolutionary product delivers the highest-resolution viewing experience of photographic artwork available today. TruLife acrylic is also abrasion-resistant, helping preserve the life of the print. With lifelike colors, incredible depth and clarity, TruLife is the best way to show high quality art. The edges are hand polished for a crystal clear look. The Acrylic Face Mount comes ready to hang with a metal french cleat style hanging system. An acrylic face mount piece of art will look great against most any wall type.

Fuji Crystal Archive Contemporary Fine Art Print - Ready To Hang

Supermoon at Tilikum Crossing print

These open edition prints are printed on beautiful Fuji Crystal Archive emulsion and sealed between solid aluminum and an amazing high-gloss UV protective laminate.

Not to be confused with Dye Sublimation Metal Prints that print directly to aluminum, this is a real chromagenic latent print placed behind a carefully sourced ultra-glossy UV laminate and mounted on thicker, stiffer aluminum sheets. The level of detail in this print is superior to dye sublimation metal. This print offers the look of aluminum combined with all the amazing visual snap of acrylic prints – sharpness, contrast, details, etc – but it’s lighter and less expensive. The print arrives mounted on a float system and includes hanging hardware.

* Free shipping for all U.S. orders! Please contact me for international shipping fees. Please allow 2-4 weeks for production and delivery.

ChromaLuxe Fine Art Metal Print - Ready To Hang

Supermoon at Tilikum Crossing print

These open edition ChromaLuxe Metal Prints are produced using Dye Sublimation technology to infuse inks into specialized aluminum plates that have been finished with a fine multiple layer polymer. ChromaLuxe’s archival qualities, image brilliance, and durability make it an excellent all-around choice. 

Two metal surfaces are available - a glossy surface with more pop and saturation (albeit with more glare and reflective properties), and a mid-gloss satin surface with similar color intensity and detail as the glossy option, with reduced glare. By default I print on glossy unless you indicate otherwise by contacting me. 

My ChromaLuxe metal prints are finished with a float mount system on the reverse and either a z-bar or wire for effortless hanging on delivery. By default we use the z-bar unless otherwise indicated via e-mail. No exterior framing is required.

* Free shipping for all U.S. orders! Please contact me for international shipping fees. Please allow 2-3 weeks for production and delivery.

The process of printing on this medium can rarely result in defects in the print medium that are barely noticeable. This is not something that can be controlled in the lab.
