Clearance Sale - Select Fine Art Photographs on Sale for a Limited Time

I really try not to have sales of my work, but I've found that I have over ordered some prints and thought I would offer these prints at a special price. With the holidays coming up and everyone looking for deal this seemed like a great time to clear inventory.

So if your looking for something for your mother or wife, I have some beautiful flowers on sale, maybe even her favorite flower. Or for him maybe a classic Route 66 photo, or beautiful landscape.

The sale is in both my LJDesignPhoto Fine Art Photography Etsy Shop and my LJDesignPhoto Fine Art Photography 1000 Markets Shop. Check out both shops, because they both have different images and sizes listed. All prints on sale have SALE in the titles and are limited to items in stock, so once they are gone they are gone.

The sale end when inventory sells out or on November 14, 2009, which ever comes first.

A Morning of Autumn Now Available

A Beautiful Autumn Scene Now Available in my LJDesignphoto 1000 Markets shop. This beautiful photo was taken on my most recent trip to Utah. The first night of the trip was spent in Southwestern Colorado and an abandoned house caught my eye. We had gotten up early and with the morning sun and mix of storm clouds the lighting was perfect. While I really like the photos of the house, I love this photo. I hope you love it too.

Just trying out a little HDR Photography

I've been wanting to try this new digital photography tool out for a while, but I really haven't had much time lately to sit down and figure it out. I also wasn't sure it was a good fit for me. So many of the images I see are beyond reality and I like my photos to capture the true beauty I see around me. There are times I go farther with images into more of a digital art, and there is nothing wrong with that, but I wanted to use it for the right reason for me and my work/art. I've also found that I still have a lot to learn about it (which is fine, because I try to learn something new each day) and can't wait to have more time to take it farther.

This abandon house caught my eye as we were driving out of our Forest campground in Southwestern Colorado. The morning light was beautiful and abandoned buildings are one of my favorite subjects. Just meant to be. My husband pulled the RV over and let me out, but then got concerned when it was 15 minutes later before I got back. Oh, but the photos were worth it and I would have stayed longer if I was alone.

This is Hamburger Rock Campground in Southern Utah. This place is BLM and beautiful. It is just outside of the Needles area of Canyonland National Park. The campground is fairly primitive and the road in a little rough, but it was so worth it. This is a view from on top of the rock looking down at our campsite.

These were taken from our campsite, it was a beautiful sunset.

Hope you have enjoyed!

New Photographic Fine Art Series Now Avalible on 1000 Markets

I love fall, and I've missed it so in all my years in Florida and the Mohave Desert. But now I'm in living in a place with real seasons and fall may just be my favorite time of year.
My latest photographs are of plants and flowers in the fall. Mostly of the plants after going to seed. To me they still hold their beauty, it is just transformed. And it is a reminder of the cycle and magic of nature. I've just listed the first two in my LJDesignPhoto 1000 Markets shop.
To view my new listings just click on the photos above, or these links:

Interview with Photographer LJDesignphoto: now on 1000 Markets

I've started listing work for sale on 1000Markets, this great new marketplace. I'm only a member of three markets so far, but Camera Angles, a group of all photographers, is one of my favorites. Recently BriefMoments, who help write the market's blog, asked me to do an interview and she just posted it. She asked me some questions that no one has before, so I thought it would be go to share it with the readers of my blog. To find the interview click here, Photographic Reflections: LJ Design & Photo.
To find my 1000Markets shop use this link: LJDesignphoto Americana and Route 66 Fine Art Photography. I've been trying to add new images every week and it where you will find my newest work.
