A lucky catch!
We were tooling along Dunraven Pass in Yellowstone NP looking for bear when I noticed this Blue Grouse in a tree. He was actually about 50 feet up, but so was the road we were on – so I got to shoot at eye level! What a treat!
My dad was with me on this trip and, scratching his head, asked, “How the heck did you spot that guy??”
He was really well hidden in the branches and blended in exceedingly well. All I can figure is I just happened to look in the right spot at the right time. I could have probably driven by a dozen more times an never spotted him again.
So, I park on the opposite side of the road and start working my way across with a tripod, snapping the shutter as I drew closer and closer. I don’t know how I didn’t get squished by a car, I guess I was lucky traffic was light that evening. I finally got to a spot with him taking up the right amount of frame and was able to pull off this capture.
Kind of reminds you a bit of Christmas, doesn’t it?
About Our Prints....
We currently sell both individual prints and completely framed and ready-to-hang prints. Our framed prints are professionally matted, mounted and framed.
Here's a sample of our basic mat and frame:
Framed prints purchased though us are generally a better deal than taking a loose print to your local frame shop since we have a pretty significant discount that we pass along to you. When you receive your print in the mail, it's ready to hang and even comes with the hardware for doing so.
Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.
Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.
All prints are signed in one of the lower corners (usually the right hand corner).
Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.
We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.
Thanks for your interest!
