Morning Joy

Columbia River Gorge, Oregon.

An idyllic scene in the Columbia River Gorge as mist rises over a beautiful waterfall just after the start of this new day. One of the places I've seen time and time again in photographs is Punchbowl Falls in the Columbia River Gorge of Oregon. Because it has become something of an icon I almost didn't visit it, especially as the weather was not the overcast and rain that was forecast but sunny skies which generally aren't good for photographing waterfalls. For some reason I decided to at least go and have a look. The scene turned out to be even more beautiful than I expected with mist rising over the falls illuminated by the sun. Thanks to my friend +Koveh Tavakkol's suggestion I brought my wading boots with me and was able to get this and several other photos of the falls. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Morning Joy print

The print only option is the most affordable route to go. It is just what it sounds like: prints on high quality archival photographic paper without any mounting or framing. One of the benefits of going this route is that you can bring them to your local frame shop to have the matted and framed exactly as you like. Prints are also great if you are in a hurry as they usually arrive in 5-7 days from the time of order.

Select a print size:

Plaque

This mounting option is by far our most popular format. It is both durable and beautiful. It allows the images to reveal an almost three dimensional quality creating the impression of actually being there. This is because there is almost no glare or reflection such as you find with even the most expensive types of glass. An additional benefit is that the artwork is very durable and can even be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. The artwork also resists fading because it has UV protection. When you order a plaque from us, they arrive ready to hang.

Matted Plaques

Our matted plaque option is an affordable way to enjoy our fine art plaque option at a more affordable price. They use a very thin plaque on top of a colored background and are sized to fit in standard US frame sizes. You will need to purchase a frame, remove the glass and then insert the matted plaque into the frame in order to display it. The beauty of this is not only the price but also the fact that you can view the image without the glare of glass.

You can order prints in various formats such as print only, plaque, framed plaque, acrylic or matted. Upon special request, we also offer our prints in canvas.
