You know, I’ve decided that Yellowstone NP doesn’t do anything “small” – and that includes amazing rainbows!
As usual, I was driving around looking for wildlife (I think I was leaning towards coyotes) and noticed the sky was getting darker. I continued to drive and the weather continued roar in. I was still in the sun, but I could tell it was raining pretty good in the distance. Now, one thing I’ve learned over the years is that if you’re in the sun and you see rainclouds – GET THAT SUN BEHIND YOU – there’s bound to be a rainbow!
Sure enough as I rounded the corner up the hill I saw a fairly intense rainbow. I knew time was short the way the clouds were rolling in and about killed myself trying to find a good place to set up the gear. Sure, I could take it where I stood, but backgrounds make the photo, ya know?
I finally settled on a place to pull over and as I got out of the car and set up, I realized what had started off as a good rainbow had gone off the charts! This was easily one of the most intense rainbows I’d ever laid eyes on. It only lasted a few minutes, but that was enough to capture this shot.
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!
