My brother and his wife have a house in Michigan, formerly my parents home for a number of years. I took this shot through the picture window during a visit. I always loved this window in their family room that overlooked the backyard. I remember observing the four distinct seasons and this shot captures one facet of the changing seasons. I didn’t apply any blurring filters, this is pretty much the way it appeared during one afternoon rain in May.
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 Rag Photographique, a super smooth, soft surface that enhances its ethereal quality.
