A gnarled oak tree surrounded by vibrant fall colors near Fort Worth, Texas at Eagle Mountain Park

The Witch's Firestorm

Fort Worth, Texas (2022) - No visit to my local park is really complete without stopping by to say hello to The Witch. When I first photographed this gnarled, battered oak tree in January 2021, it was on a morning of heavy fog which subdued the scene a bit. I've been toying with wider compositions featuring the tree, but never found the conditions to work well with such framing.

 

On this late-November day when I spent roughly seven hours reveling in the glorious fall color we were experiencing, I spent quite a while in this area, trying various compositions. Knowing the light on The Witch is more direct in the afternoon, I checked back in towards the end of the day's visit, finding this brilliant scene of fiery color. The patch of strongly lit orange towards the left edge of the frame, in particular, gives the appearance of fire bursting forth from the witch's hand.

  • My Artist Series fine art photography artwork is printed on Palo Duro Etching 315 from Red River Paper, using a Canon Pro 2100 large format printer. Each print is mastered and produced by me in my home studio and includes a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

    Photography prints made with Palo Duro Etching 315 are the perfect choice for anyone looking to showcase stunning nature photography. This high-quality art paper is made from 100% cotton rag and has a classic texture that adds depth and interest to your prints without detracting from the details. It is OBA-free and archival, making it ideal for museum-quality and exceptional longevity.

    One of the benefits of this paper from Red River is its warmer white tone, which gives my prints an elegant, natural look. This is particularly beneficial for nature photography, as it enhances the beauty of landscapes, nature scenes, and other images with a natural color palette. Unlike other matte papers, it also produces amazingly deep blacks, thanks to a barrier coat that locks ink into the inkjet coating and prevents it from sinking into the base paper.

    Palo Duro Etching 315 is a true conservation grade media, with no optical brighteners, and is acid- and lignin-free. It is perfect for producing my fine art nature prints, whether for display in your home or at work. This paper is also ideal for fine art print collectors who appreciate the texture and feel of watercolor or cold press fine art paper.

    The professional printer I use, a Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-2100, uses archival pigment inks, providing vibrant, accurate colors. The use of pigment inks furthers the longevity of my Artist Series prints when properly displayed and cared for.

    With their elegant look, feel, and performance, my fine art prints are sure to impress and delight for generations to come.
