Descent into Fire is a portrait of the moon as it appeared on April 6th, 2022. By incorporating a long exposure of the dwindling sunset, the image is bisected by the warm tones of the sunlight with the cool tones of the night sky, a metaphor for what you see happening on the moon. The lit side of the moon is a balmy 224F (106C) while the darker side is a brisk -298F (-183C). This image was captured from my backyard in Florence, Arizona.
The size indicated is the "leaf size", which will include a 1/2" white border for handling and framing.
The signature will be applied directly to the image (see the preview for an example), as well as the edition number. Since these are produced at my home rather than a commercial print lab, they will arrive unframed in a rigid carboard mailer, for you to frame at your discretion. All prints are guaranteed for quality
