Cliff Dwellers

Great Horned Owls (Bubo virginianus) - Estes Park - Colorado

Four great horned owls sit atop a high cliff ledge-the spring and early summer home from which these male and female owls raised their young. The owls living on the cliff gave me the unique opportunity to photograph all four of them in one image, which would have been almost impossible had they been in a more typical nest in a tree. Owls hunt at night and sleep during the day, so getting an image where all four were near the nest was quite tricky. It took five days of waiting before I captured them all with their eyes open and in a position that worked well for a photo. The owlets pictured here were growing wary of their cliffside home and were already flapping their wings restlessly. About a week after I made this image, the young ones fledged and went off on their own.

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

With metal prints the brilliant surface offers a richness of color that makes viewers take notice.  But they also solve the "problem" of framing. Traditional mounting, matting, and framing can be a time consuming and expensive process. Not so with Metal Prints, the metal surface is naturally smooth and rigid, and with a hanger attached to the back, they are ready to hang right out of the box. This is a great choice for a ready to hang contemporary piece of wall art at a more econonimal price.

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wraps offer a superb way to display your photographs. What makes canvas wraps so popular is that they eliminate the need (and cost) of framing. Your Canvas Wrap is ready to hang on your wall, right out of the box. Once you see your Canvas Wrap, you'll understand why these are one of the most popular trends in decor and display. Canvas wraps are also a great option if you have a room that received a lot of glare. The canvas won't reflect the light like a traditional glass or acrylic frame will.
