Location: Coral Gables, Florida • USA
Description: The banyan tree happens to be one my favorite trees in the world. Fortunately, for me, I grew up in areas with an abundance of these beauiful and majestic trees. This particular tree really caught my attention with its tentacle-like roots and magical feel. I had a feeling this tree was hiding an enchanted/magical aura that would be revealed by the infrared filter.
The Banyan is a tropical fig tree from India. As reported, the first banyan tree in the U.S. was planted in 1925 by Thomas Alva Edison in Fort Myers, Florida. The tree is now as common as palm trees in areas all over Florida -- Especially the scenic areas of Coconut Grove and Coral Gables, FL.
Type: Infrared Photography
Print Sizes: Available in many sizes to suit your decoration needs. Please select your desired print size, quantity and "click" Add-to-Cart. You may add mutliple copies in different sizes of any one photograph to your shopping cart. There are no restrictions. The size indicates the actual image size.
Please Note: The sample image(s) have been compressed for optimal web download. The original print you will receive is extremely vibrant, ultra sharp and has a much higher resolution which can only be appreciated in person. Also, the watermark "Copyright ©" on the image will NOT appear on your order.
Museum Quality Archival Metallic Prints: I exclusively prefer the richness of the higher-quality metallic paper because of how perfectly it compliments the tones and subtleties of my infrared work. This museum quality archival paper and process uses a patented combination of film and laminate layers that result in a striking, three-dimensional, extremely vivid, lasting image on an ultra-bright pearlescent / metallic background. You don’t have to worry about prints fading with these high quality prints. The standard archival value is 100 years in home display and 200 years in dark storage. I only use professional printing services that meet my professional high standards.
Require a more customized frame? I highly recommend Talking Walls 2 (TW2) in Gainesville, FL. Ask for Tony and say "Hugo sent me" and you will get 25% OFF his already low framing service prices (best quality and best prices anywhere). Like myself, he is a family owned and operated business -- Framing is his "art". Also, if you are local, visit the Talking Walls 2 Gallery to view and buy my artwork throughout the gallery. Local pickup or worldwide shipping -- Call TW2 at (352) 333•7225.
Whether you chose me or TW2 to frame your print, the advantage in both is that I will be able to sign and title the mat (opposite corners below the print on the mat).
