East Lake At Sunrise In High Desert Territory

East Lake at sunrise in high desert territory, central Oregon. It’s late summer so the mornings were chilly, in the high 40’s (F) before the sun rose jutting above the horizon and the hills. The lake is serene and beautiful and the light coming up, intense. It warms the air. The whole surroundings warm the soul. Just a few minutes later, a gaggle of geese swim by in a loose formation appearing content in the calm water and the quiet still. Maybe I shot 20 pictures within the roughly 60 minutes of time that elapsed, as the scenery changed, the light grew and life reappeared brighter. And then it became photographically dull. Not dull, from a being in nature sense just from taking more pictures here. As the sun reached higher, the steam on the water paled and finally vanished, and the hills lost their sharp contrast with the lake. Time may be captured in fleeting moments but what are we really able to hold, to grasp, to fully comprehend of it, laughter in the wind? The last picture in the gallery is an unedited version just for comparison purposes.

Archival-Quality Prints: A Century of Timeless Memories

These prints are not just images, they can become old friends. Crafted to meet stringent archival standards, the papers and inks we use are designed to last over a century with the right care. Here’s what it means for you:

  • Longevity: Each print is engineered to endure, with a lifespan extending beyond 100 years when kept in optimal conditions.
  • Care Instructions: To maintain image quality:
    ◦ Store unframed prints in an archival-quality container.
    ◦ For framed displays, use archival matting and adhesive, coupled with UV-filtering glass to safeguard against sunlight and environmental damage.
    • Environment Matters: Place your artwork away from direct sunlight and high humidity to maintain its pristine condition.
