Cahokian EclipseCahokian EclipseIn late 2014, St Louis looked forward to the once in a lifetime sunset eclipse. Capturing the Arch and Sun in the same image involved finding an elevated position along a very narrow azimuth several miles away in order to keep the sun the same size as the Gateway Arch. Fortunately, 1,600 years ago, an unknown native American people built the largest and most complex archaeological site north of Mexico City. Today, historians call these earthworks, the Cahokia Mounds…a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As the occulting moon covered the setting sun, heavy clouds obscured the celestial event. Undeterred, a small group of worshipers continued their chants and beating drums thereby carving out a fleeting window for this incredible view. The orange hues arise from the solar filter on the end of my 400mm lens.


Dayton Area Customers

If you live in the Dayton Ohio area, please send me an email first vice ordering from my webpage ([email protected]).  I can offer a wholesale price by delivering the print in person which allows me to lower your final price.  


Custom Size, Framing or Medium

I work with an awesome local printer who will custom print, mat, and frame your print.  Solving your specific needs is easy, just email me at [email protected]


Although my website displays each image with a watermarked overlay, the actual print (or product) you receive will not include my logo.  

Print Ratio

I compose each image to a golden ratio which requires a more panoramic print size; like today’s widescreen TVs vs traditional screens.  I also offer full panoramic prints and support these images thru custom print sizes.  


I stand by a print quality guarantee and a damaged product guarantee.  In the rare case you need to activate either guarantee, please contact me within 30 days.
