Field Notes Print Info

Ahh, Sol-Duc falls, almost died there… Good times, good times….

So, my wife and I decide, despite the rain / snow falling, we’d hike back to Sol-Duc falls and try to get some photos. Hmm, in retrospect maybe it was more like I’ll try to get some photos, she’ll try to stay dry.

The walk back was as good as the falls – talk about feeling like you were in a fairy tale! (You know, except for nearly freezing to death in the pouring rain.) As we approached the falls, we noticed a little shelter area that my wife made a mental note of (with permanent ink). So, we checked out the falls, I pulled out my camera, she went to the shelter. Fair enough.

So, I’m shooting away in the rain, the falls roaring in my ears, and my hands taking turns in and out of my pockets (wet hands + 33 degrees). Then I notice that maybe if I go across the fence there might be a better shot. So, I’m literally at the edge of the drop off when my wife SNEAKS up behind me and yells:


I just about jumped over the falls.

Now, she claims she didn’t “sneak” or yell, but hey, that’s how I remember it. Come to think of it, I seem to vaguely recall her checking my life insurance policy before we left, but I can’t be clear on that part…

At any rate, after that I went back around and got this shot with a fence safely in front of me! I just couldn’t resist those yellowish leaves and the way the water tumbled over. If you ever have the chance to hike it, this is one you’ll never forget.

(And the shot that nearly killed me? It sucked well 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!

    Yep, mother nature up here isn’t for the faint of heart, only the sure of foot. Rain? What rain?
