Mountain Goat Headshot
[ Click photo to enlarge ] | Add To "My Gallery"
This photo was captured on Mt Evans in Colorado. Normally I don’t do much in the way of middle-of-the-day shooting, but I just couldn’t resist this big guy (that and there was, conveniently enough, a thin veil of clouds holding back some of the sun’s intensity). He was all alone and just wandering up the side of the mountain.
So, I stopped the truck, grabbed the gear, and started up the steep mountainside towards him. Then ran out of air and had to rest a moment (I live at 600 feet above sea level, he was at 8,500 feet – and my first stop on the trip). Nothing like a shift in elevation, and a steep ascent on loose rock to get the ‘ol heart pumping!
The cool thing about this guy was he was totally fine with me as long as I didn’t push too hard. It was evident he was fairly used to having people stop by and allowed me to get quite close – and even would come my way when I was where he wanted to go.
Although I have an hour’s worth of photos, this was my favorite. I had gone to Mt Evans hoping to see a mountain goat and maybe getting some kind of image, but to get a headshot like this was a real thrill for me. He was the first mountain goat I’d ever seen, so that makes the photo an even more valued part of my collection.
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!
