Mountains Goats, Flying Snow • When the big fat snowflakes fly I grab my gear and head for the hills where the critters live.  Fat snowflakes in front of wild animals is very compelling to me.  It is always a race on terrible roads to get to where the critters live before a storm sadly ends.  Oh shooting in heavy snow has its challenges, keeping your equipment dry, and water of your lens element, even auto focus fails as it focuses on the snow flakes instead of the animals.  The results are worth the challenges.  Here a herd of mountain goats go about their daily business in their vertical world obliviously to the weather and the dizzying heights of where they live.

The Mountain Goats' range changes from season to season. They migrate between lowland winter areas, and high elevation summer ranges. For winter, goats may move up to ten miles to the lowest suitable range on, sunnier, south-facing mountainsides. Nannies, during tough winters, often defend foraging locations to the exclusion of their kids; consequently, mortality can be high during severe winters.

Product information

Traditional Fine Art Prints • I have all fine art prints printed at Bay Photo, an internationally known custom color lab.  After printing, Bay Photo ships the print to me for inspection and signing, I then ship them along to you. This takes awhile, be patient.

I spec them on “Moab’s  Lasal Exhibition Luster” photo paper. This paper weighs in at a healthy 300gsm, ideal for gallery and exhibition prints, the new fourth-generation coating ensures the highest possible d-max and color holdout. With product names like Entrada, Colorado, and Lasal its easy to see the source of inspiration for Legion Paper's Moab brand. Created in Moab, UT surrounded by the endless red rock wonders of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, the Colorado River, and the LaSal Mountains, the Moab line of archival, digital imaging papers continues to rely on that inspiration to design premium solutions for digital photographers and artists.

Your paper print product will come pre-mounted on 3/16" Gator Foamboard, a very rigid, durable, and lightweight backing that will not warp, the premium backing for fine art prints. Having messed up prints myself putting them on mountaing board you will appreciate the extra effort and expanese.
