Finally! A nice shot of Blue Hen Falls!
This is one I’ve been trying to bag for awhile – since my film days in fact! See, each time I’d stop to shoot the falls (usually in autumn), I’d end up with VERY little water flow. Instead of the nice robust waterfall you see here, I would typically end up with a little stringy drip about 1/4 the size.
It was for that reason I almost didn’t stop. This was actually taken on my way back from a quick waterfall shoot in NY. It was raining, I was tired, and based on my past luck, well, I didn’t think it was even worth the attempt.
However, it was only about a 20 mile diversion, and I did have the time. I finally talked myself into it, thinking if it sucked, I’d just turn around and hike right back up to the car.
Well, you can imagine how quickly my attitude changed when I hit the bridge above the falls and saw more water than I ever had before rushing under it!
I shot every angle I could come up with, sometimes standing in the creek (talk about cold feet!), sometimes in the pouring rain, but after two exhilarating hours, I felt like I had finally conquered Blue Hen Falls!
Out of all the shots I captured that day, this was my favorite. (And yes, I was ankle deep in the ice cold water. )
About Our Prints....
I currently sell individual prints only. Each image is custom printed in house by me on our commercial grade inkjet printer. Each print is individually inspected and carefully packaged for shipment.
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.
(Note - we are no longer offering framed prints. The potential for damage in transit was very high and the shipping for large framed prints was outrageous, sometimes costing over $100 for larger pieces. Additionally, we've found our clients seem happier when they can work with their own local framing shop.)
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 have a signature in the corner, usually the lower right hand when possible.
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!
