One of my favorite scenes in the spring is seeing a beautiful white dogwood tree (cornus florida) in full bloom in the woods. There is just something incredible about seeing the crisp white blossoms against the greens and browns of the woods.
I spotted this dogwood tree along the side of the road one morning in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I was on my way up the mountain hoping to catch sunrise from Clingman’s Dome, so I didn’t stop on the way up. Sunrise was a bust that morning – totally overcast at the peak. The only way those of us waiting to photograph sunrise could be sure that the sun was up was by looking at our watches! There was a slight change in the sky color from dark gray to slightly less dark gray – and that was it.
So I headed back down the mountain feeling rather disappointed that I hadn’t managed to photograph sunrise. But then I remembered the dogwood tree I’d spotted on the way up. So I stopped, spent about half an hour photographing the dogwood tree against the woods in the distance. At one point, the sun barely broke through the clouds just brightening up the blossoms – which was when I captured this photo.
It was one of those mornings where I didn’t photograph what I hoped to – but still came away with wonderful memories of a beautiful scene in the Smoky Mountains and this photograph.
Traditional Matted Photographs
All of my photographs are available as traditionally matted images. I find myself drawn back to the classic look of a photograph with a white mat.
I print my matted photographs on an Epson 3880 professional photo printer using Epson archival paper and Epson pigmented inks. Displayed under glass, these photographs have an estimated print life of at least 80 years. These archival photographs are covered by my fade free guarantee.
My photographs are matted using acid-free mats and backing boards. Photographs matted to 11X14” and 12X12” are presented in a single white mat. Photographs matted to 10X20” and 16X20” are presented in a double white mat. All of my mats are cut to fit standard sized frames available online and at local art & craft stores.
Most photographs can be order in larger sizes. Please contact me about custom sizes of matted photographs.
Gallery-Wrapped Canvas Photographs
All of my photographs are also available as gallery-wrapped canvases. The canvas preserves all the fine details of the photograph while giving them a sense of three dimensions.
I print my gallery-wrapped canvases on an Epson 9800 professional photo printer using Epson archival canvas and Epson pigmented inks. A protective spray is added to each photograph giving it some added water resistance and UV protection. Current estimates are that this combination of canvas, ink and spray should last for at least 70 years. These archival photographs are covered by my fade free guarantee.
All gallery-wrapped canvases are shipped ready-to-hang.
Some photographs can be ordered in larger sizes of gallery-wrapped canvases. Please contact me about custom sizes of canvases.
