Lake Ahquabi | Iowa

 Lake Ahquabi is a small but pretty lake south of Des Moines, Iowa. This photograph was captured during a winter sunset from a boathouse on the water. A reflection of the deep red sunset is mirrored in the boathouse windows. The soft sky and smooth water are contrasted by the rough textures found on the wooden deck and walls of the boathouse.  The photograph is panoramic. 

a note from the artist

I actually came here to scout this lake house to capture it as a foreground for an astro photograph later that night. Having found my scene I returned to the lake house to watch the sunset. Then the sky exploded and I noticed the reflection. Immediately, my plans changed, I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time.

Edition of 50

About the prints: I print on a premium substrate that is unparalleled in depth and luminosity. The material refracts light in such a way that light travels laterally through the paper as well as reflects to the audience creating a brilliant effect that many mistake to be rear illumination. Each print is then face mounted to acrylic and sandwiched to a protective backing. The artwork is then framed or a recessed mount is added to the back to float on the wall. I offer Tabacchino and other handmade framing options. Available starting  24”x60” 28”x72” 32”x84” 36”x96” and custom sizes. Below are examples in 4” frames with and without liners. More arrangements are available. Liners are available in Black, White, Beige. See FRAMES in the menu above for more frames and liner options.
