This photograph is gorgeous! I would like to know the photographer, and where I can buy a high quality print. I checked TinEye, but didn't see anything that wasn't just imagedumps on sketchy-looking sites...

Are you sure it's a photograph? It looks like an illustration to me...

Longshot, but could be on Etsy. Do a keyword search for ocean, pier, etc. under photographs.

parrot_person: I thought the same, but closer examination indicates it could just be (very beautiful) ice buildup.

Might or might not be the photographer you are after, but here's the scoop on the location. Captioned "Frozen Sea and Pier - Odessa - Ukraine - Winter of 2006" Dmitriy Margolin has taken a few photographs of this pier.

The EXIF data say it was taken on a Canon PowerShot S1 IS which is a fine pocket superzoom camera, but not something a pro would use for anything. If I had to guess, I would say just a lucky shot by an amateur.

I reviewed all the hits on Google Image Search too and didn't see anything that looked like an artist's website.

Reddit.com usually loves the challenge of tracking photos down to support the photographer! Try a post there? The /natureporn sub-reddit forum loves beautiful shots similar to this one and may be a good place to start.
