Does In Earth’s Shadow

Last year we ventured into Custer State Park in SD – mostly on accident. We had been planning to shoot in the Tetons for a week, but smoke and wildfires had other plans. So, we left the area and figured, “Hey, what about the Black Hills?”
Turns out Custer is a little like Disney World for nature photographers. TONS of great – and approachable – wildlife all over.
We were there several nights, and each evening we had an amazing light show. Despite the lack of clouds, we had this incredible pink sky with the earth’s shadow (also called “The Belt Of Venus”) coming up from the bottom (the darker area in this photo).
This was the first time I’ve seen it this intense and I couldn’t find a subject fast enough! I was almost in a panic trying to find something to photograph with this spectacular background. Well, we round a corner and see some mulies up on the ridge. So, I jump out and start shooting – and the little fawn heads over to her mother! I gently waved my hand in a semi-circle (a good trick to get wildlife to look your way) and they both stare my direction. Only got one that had both looking directly at me, but I’m glad I found ‘em.
A few minutes later, the sky was dull and lifeless.
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!
