Print Of the Month Returns

It has been some time since I offered my "Print Of The Month" special. This was because of the demise of my Epson 7900 printer, my wait for the new Canon printer models to come out, and the time needed to become facile in the use of the new printer. I am pleased to announce that I now feel quite  comfortable' with the new printer and am truly pleased with the results I am getting, which in many ways I like more than the prior Epson. Which means I am ready to bring back my half priced "Print Of The Month". Click here for all the information.

For the return of "Print Of The Month" I offer this image, entitled "View Down The Youghiogheny", which I made just a few weeks ago. I was experimenting with long exposures in order to give the water, which is slow moving at this portion of the river, a blurred milky appearance. This one minute exposure was my favorite of the many photographs I made of this scene.
