Print of the Month: Trees in the Fog

Our January, 2011 offering was Trees in the Fog. This dramatic monochromatic image is presented on 16" X 11" paper. The actual image size is somewhat smaller, allowing for my hand signature and overmatting when you frame the piece.

Trees in the Fog is made by hand and giclee printed with tender, loving care in my studio on 325 gsm Hahnemuhle FineArt Baryta 100% a-Cellulose paper. This popular image has appeared in Creative Night (Wiley) and on the cover of Creative Black & White (Wiley).

The price for this archival print is $450.00. This includes careful, custom packing and insured Fedex ground shipping within the United States. (For orders outside of the United States, please contact me for shipping costs.)

Purchase Trees in the Fog by Harold Davis
I shot Trees in the Fog in the Presidio Park on a foggy San Francisco night. I'd been hoping to get some shots of the Sutro Baths and Pacific Ocean, but everything was fogged in. I turned, and saw the delicious shadows cast by the street lights coming through the dark trunks of the trees—an image of light through darkness and the coming of the new year out of the old. You can read more abut the details of how I made this exposure in my blog story about this popular image.

We make our prints with a great deal of care with the best archival standards. Even the ink I use to sign our prints is acid free.

I'm not comparing myself with the great masters of photography, but consider that during the many years that Edward Weston and Ansel Adams were active, you could have bought one of their prints for a few hundred dollars (at most). These prints sell for tens of thousands of dollars at auction today.
