Secret Beach | Kauai, Hawaii

This image is from a series of shots captured during high surf at Secret Beach on the north shore of Kauai Island in Hawaii. A spectacular sunset with dramatic clouds and big waves made our last evening on the island to a memorable visit.

Its official Hawaiian name is Kauapea Beach. A steep trail, about a 10 minutes hike, leads onto the beach. The trail can be very challenging and slick during rainy days due to slippery rocks, which adds to its seclusion. Secret beach is one of Kauai's longest and widest beaches with its 3000 feet length and 72 feet width. The beach is covered in beautiful white sand and black lava rocks. It offers stunning views on Kilaulea Lighthouse to the right. In the winter it is a surfers paradise. Photo © copyright by Claudia Lungauer.

Fuji Flex High Gloss (paper only)

Purple Sky print

My favorite paper to print on is Fuji Flex high gloss paper, using a modern Océ LightJet printing process. It is a silver halide, true photographic printing material on a polyester base creating depth and dimensionality, which reflects more light and makes the colors deeper and richer than any other papers. This is the golden standard for creating stunning gallery-level prints and is used for fine art landscapes and cityscapes prints.

Lumachrome HD TruLife Acrylic Prints

Lumachrome HD TruLife Acrylic Prints

Lumachrome HD is a fairly new printing method. I was truly impressed by the vibrant colors, breathtaking details and sharpness reflected in the prints. This printing solution is pricier but by far my favorite. It is the best possible way to display high end art, giving the viewer the feeling as almost being at the scene when looking at the picture.

The process starts by producing a photographic print that is then face mounted from behind to a sheet of crystal clear, scratch resistant and non reflective acrylic glass. Images printed in this way have an almost 3D quality that show an unbelievable resolution, dynamic range and incredible vibrant colors which makes these prints the best luxury fine art prints available. The Lumachrome HD Acrylic Print is finished using a “float Mount” system, creating a ready to hang work of art that does not require exterior framing.
