Regular readers remember my monthly print promotion, which always included a 36×24″ canvas for an extremely low price. For a while, I offered them separately, then I made the photo of the month that I pick at the end of each month the print promo, but…

Archive: Cedar Creek Falls & Mildred Falls (17 photos) in Spring 2011.

After a very wet winter in Southern California (my first winter here) I returned to Cedar Creek Falls to see them running in Spring. The difference to the first visit in October 2010 couldn’t possibly have been any bigger!

Featured in a nice selection of sepia/toned images with my image "Fallen", on the curator's blog at PrintedArt:
http://www.printedart.com/content/sweet-sepia
Adding sepia to prints was originally a process to help make the photographs more durable; the sepia pigment was first made from sepia cuttlefish! There's something about sepia prints, a hint of dreaminess or the surreal. Instead of a black and white image, there's a little tastiness added.
