New River Gorge Bridge Between Storms in the New River Gorge National Park and Preserve at sunset in August.

New River Gorge Bridge Between Storms

The New River Gorge Bridge. The iconic West Virginia bridge. The longest, single-span arch bridge in the Western Hemisphere, it spans the width of the world-famous New River Gorge. This architectural masterpiece, this engineering marvel is a focal point in and of itself. One of the coolest things is that the weather and the seasons are always changing. No matter how many times you photograph it, it’s an entirely different picture.

This landscape portfolio image was captured on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, at 8:35 PM. On that day I was kayaking the New River Gorge at a level of around 3200 CFS. As the title suggests, a storm had just passed through, right before sundown. At that moment the sun broke through the clouds, illuminating the fog and clouds around the bridge. About 10 minutes later another storm came through.

For that reason, the original title I gave this picture was “Between Storms.” But when I posted it on Facebook it went super-viral. I was shocked. It wasn’t one of my favorites and I thought it was just ok. But it got thousands of shares and people were calling it “The Bridge to Heaven.” Now, that’s a little too much for me, but people started asking me about “that picture you took of the New River Gorge Bridge.” So I added the iconic name to the title.

PRINTS ON PVC

The only product I am currently offering are prints on PVC. You may not have heard of prints on PVC because they are new, but they are BEAUTIFUL! They have all the detail of a paper print without the glare of glass or additional cost of framing. They arrive ready to hang with a mount that puts the image 3/4” from the wall for a modern “floating” look. The finish is a metallic luster that I feel compliments my style.

Why not canvas? Personally, I do not like the texture that comes with a canvas print. I don't feel that they are as detailed as a PVC print and I have been unhappy with the overall printing of canvas prints that I've ordered in the past. To be fair, I have seen canvas prints that look good but I don't know where they were printed and until I find one I'm happy with, I don't want to offer them. Furthermore, canvas prints are much more expensive.

That said, if you'd still prefer a canvas or a paper print, please use the form to the right to message me and I can put together something custom for you.
