I am about to release a couple of new prints which have me very excited.  Below is the final version of one of my newest print of the Deschutes River near Bend, Oregon.  Have hiked and run past this location countless times in the past and it is always beautiful.  Two years ago, I visited this spot in autumn but I was too late, the fall color had faded and while beautiful, it was no longer photo worthy.

In autumn of 2013, I returned to the same location long the Deschutes River trail and my timing was perfect.  Fall color was better than I’d ever seen it at this particular location along the Deschutes  River and the flow patterns of the Deschutes were mesmerizing.  This was all about timing and good fortune.    The above print of the Deschutes is obviously in a vertical orientation.  This print will be equally as attractive in a wider, horizontal orientation seen below.  This wider shape includes more of the intriguing and inviting flow patterns of the Deschutes which invite the viewer on a visual journey up the beautiful waters of one of my favorite rivers.
