Reed in Sand — On the Oregon Coast

On the beach, a reed in the sand. It almost looks like it was set up for a picture, but not so, it just appeared in front of me as I was walking on the beach. A moment to capture and preserve on paper, this could also stand as a metaphor on life: grab it while you can, it won’t last forever.

About My Prints:  I use only Canon Lucia inks for printing which are archival.  In addition to the printing papers, any future matting and framing materials used, if archival too (with reasonable care), will last 100 years or more. The papers I use almost exclusively are Canson Fine Art Papers and also do not contain brightening agents that decay over time.  For this image, the paper I used is the Canson Baryta Prestige 11, an absolutely beautiful, wide tonal range paper.
