The Deer at the River

During our 2018 Summer road trip, I went out on a waterfall trail.  And on that trail I saw a buck laying down in a small clearing next to the river that fed the waterfall.  I looked around and saw no one else.  How delighted I was to be the only one here, because that meant that he was all mine, as there was no other to scare him away or do something stupid and make the buck charge. And so I stayed and photographed and observed the stag for a few minutes before continuing my way down the trail.

Over the past few days I have been adding four photographs that are my favourite of this buck at this cascading river forest spot to my Zazzle shop, Developing Nature. You can purchase the photograph(s) to be printed on items for housewares, decor and office supplies.

Even though the young stag is really small in this landscape scene, it is still wonderful to view.

And you place this zoomed in deer image next to the river image to complement the landscape photograph.

I like how there is a natural curvature that kinda makes an arrow pointing toward the stag.

By far my favourite one! I just love the framing that the tree branches provided.

I Joined S6

In late August, I discussed a situation that we have with my husband about the house. He thought it was a neat idea. But how to accomplish the idea? … That answer came when I found Society6. Now, I actually have heard of this site before, but was not thinking it would be a good fit for me. I had seen a lot of pop-modern-text art on the site. I’m a nature photographer, how could I fit in there. But this site offered something that I needed and I could not find it anywhere else, so I created an account. I couldn’t just upload that one image, and leave. ? A shop with one image, how silly. So over these past few weeks I have uploaded twelve images. These images are mostly old digital pictures that I have edited. I’m reminiscing on our past by looking at our old pictures. (Still figuring out this new computer.) Some stand out and I wanted to improve them. Plus I still needed to learn the new art programs that I got for the new computer. ( I do like the vintage camera applications. I wish the painter had a timer on it. Or worked faster.)

As for that project, it’s not done. Haven’t even started making it. We actually tried to beat the rainy season and got started on replacing boards, securing boards, sanding and staining boards. The deck is now safe to be on, and I no longer have to worry about someone’s foot going through a board, or someone going over a railing. Alas, the outdoor work is incomplete. The rain won. So while we wait for another break of sunlight, we will begin on the dining room. And when that is done we’ll get the project that brought me to Society6 completed.

After completing some uploads, I did go browsing, and found a great number of fellow nature photographers. A lot has changed since I first saw the website a few years ago. And some people are already discovering my work on S6. YAY!

Here is a screen grab, and the store link is below. There are birds, landscapes, a pony and a white wolf to start off with. The merchandise is limited to a few selections for housewares, iPhone & laptop cases, other than prints.
