Owl Tree

Arvada, CO

We watched these juvenile Great horned owls in a high nest at the top of a poplar tree, gradually becoming more visible and precocious as they approached adult size. On mornings when I'd go visit the magpie nest along the old canal, I'd pass this massive, majestic cottonwood tree and would sometimes see one of the adults. On this morning, all three fledglings watched me while goofily bobbing heads, an adult sleeping on a stout branch. I would guess the tree to be in the 100 year range, sprouted not long after the canal was built to serve our once rural community.

Owl Tree print

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
