Weekly Photo Challenge: Misty   20 comments

After checking out Ailsa’s weekly photo challenge and finding it was Misty this week, I couldn’t resist!  Most of these are from the archive but are fairly recent images.  A couple are very recent, taken with my point and shoot.  Please note these are copyright-protected and not available for free download without my permission.  Click on the image to go to the main gallery page, and please contact me if you have any questions.  Thanks for looking and enjoy!

The goal for this post is two-fold:  First, it displays a few examples of fine-art images that are available as limited edition prints.  This means they are numbered and signed, and are custom-made to your specifications.  There will only be 10-20 copies of each released.  The exact number will depend on demand.  And second, I am offering followers of this blog 15% off on your orders.  This offer is good until Memorial Day (May 31st).  It covers all of the fine-art images in this gallery, including those you see here.

There are a number of treatments that I have found to make these images really stand out when they are framed and displayed in your home.  The special high-end papers that I use include lustrous and pearlescent, but I am also eager to work with you if you have ideas on how you would like the print to look.  We will communicate with each other on this and together decide on the best medium for your image.  Of course you can leave the decision to me, in which case I can guarantee it will look great.

 Custom framing is also available, or you can order your print(s) matted and shipped flat.  You can also elect to have it shipped rolled in a strong, protective box.  They will also be signed by me inconspicuously at bottom.  Or if you prefer, they can be signed on the back of the print.

Included as well is a detailed description of the image and the location, along with other information on how to care for and mount your art.  For unframed images, you will get special gloves to use in handling your print before it is mounted.  The detailed captions and information on the natural settings will enrich your experience of your artwork and help you to knowledgeably share with your friends and family the amazing locations and natural phenomena represented in the images.  Finally, all of my work comes with a 100% money-back, no-questions-asked, one-year warranty.
