Last Summer I was lucky enough to get a decent photo of the Cat and Dog sitting on a Hay Bale looking out across the farm fields. It’s a rare day when the critters pose so nicely like they did sitting on the bale out in the Hay field.

This has to be one of my favorite photographs so I picked it for a Canvas Print from Cafepress.

Here’s the print fresh out of the package. It was nicely protected in the box. An inner cardboard protected and separated the foam bagged canvas from the outer box.

Here is the canvas print under a couple of 8 1/2 x 11 photo prints I had printed earlier.

I’m happy with he way it turned out the colors and detail came out looking like the paper prints I had. The canvas looks good even with the fairly smooth finish, possibly from the UV coating. The framing, and packaging were all done nicely. It proudly hangs on my wall.

Since it turned out so well I have added Cat and Dog on Hay Bale Canvas Wall Art prints of the photo to my Photography By Kent Lorentzen  Cafepress shop.

Managed to get a decent close up photo of some Wood Aster Flowers recently. They are pretty wild flowers that survived the frost.

I enjoy a morning walk around my farm and along the river with the dog and a camera. The beauty of nature, sunrise, and sights seen are a joy to behold. I love being able to share some of that beauty with a great photo. Mornings like this one on 22 November 2010 really capture Natures majesty!

This Summer had more mushrooms than usual and gave me something to look for on morning walks. I was luck enough to get some good photos of the Mushrooms. Enough photos to make a Calendar:

I’ve heard that Fairies like to camp out under mushrooms… So, kept looking for them and hoping to capture some in a photo. They must have hidden when I looked… Though, there are some shadows in a couple of photos that could be from fairies.

Sunrise was beautiful this morning on the first day of Spring. I’ve been taking pictures every day this Winter and Spring. Most days it’s a short walk to the mailbox and along the road, some days it’s a little longer walk along the river bank, and on a few days it was ‘Open the door a crack, stick out the camera and take a picture.’

Here’s one of the photos I took this morning:

I think it’s one of the best photos I’ve taken these past few months. There were quite a few other good photos too, here’s another one taken of the dawn:

Of course… The dog really enjoys going for a walk in the mornings. She’s not easy to capture in a photo, just doesn’t stay put for long or hold a pose well. A few times the camera was able to capture her in a good picture. Here’s one of her drinking from water on ice in the Mississippi river a couple of days before the ice went out:

It’s been fun taking pictures every day even if it’s sometimes hard to pick the best one from a whole lot of good ones. And… There are a few days when it’s just hard to get a good picture. Oh well… That’s just the way it goes sometimes.

It was a nice foggy morning with the Sun just up in the sky after loading the truck for Farmers market. There was just enough time for a quick walk with the camera before it was time to leave. I think the camera did a good job of capturing the beauty of the dawn.

Pretty Bright Flowers by Kent Lorentzen

Bright colored flower plants were blooming at last week’s Farmer’s Market. They make a beautiful photo.

One of nice things about selling my garden goodies at Farmer’s Market… Is seeing all the great things other vendors bring. This time of year there are lots of lovely flower plants all ready for folks to put in their gardens.

I try to snap some photos each day I’m there… Once in a while I’m lucky enough to capture a really pretty image.

Beaming Sunset by Kent Lorentzen

Glanced out late yesterday afternoon and saw an orange sky. Oh my… It was the sunset. Grabbed the camera, threw on a jacket, hat, gloves, and boots, then headed out to try and capture the lovely sky.

It’s so hard to know when taking the pictures how they will turn out and if any will do justice to the view. Several turned out decent and a few others could be improved if they were cropped

This one… Is just the way it came out of the camera.

Turned out to be a nice winter sunset with the orange beam of light shooting up into the sky. There are enough clouds to color the sky nicely with the orange tint from the setting sun. It’s not every day you get such a view.

February Sunrise by Kent Lorentzen

This morning’s dawn sky had pretty colors, so I grabbed the camera and went out to capture some photos of the pre-sunrise sky.

Here’s one that that’s not too bad:

I took this from the road in front of my house looking across the Mississippi river at the pine trees on the East bank. The river is completely frozen over and snow covered after the cold weather. You can see some snowmobile tracks on the river and there are a bunch of animal tracks too. Deer, fox, wolves, and whatnot.

This is a nice giclee print of a Cardinal that I received from Loxly Gallery. What a beautiful bird and photograph, the print quality is outstanding.

Here’s a photo I took of the print:

The photo doesn’t do justice to the print quality or show all the great color and detail that show up when looking at the print in person.

Here’s how the print is shown at Loxly Gallery:

Summing it up… I’ll give a thumbs up as my Review rating to Loxly Gallery for producing a great print! I’m sure to enjoy it for a long time.
