Home decor from my Etsy shop to your home.

Do you love butterflies? In this image, you can feel the feather softness of delicate wings.  This image is available as a digital download in my Etsy shop and can come from my home to yours in mere seconds.  Just click to purchase, and the download is available to you.

The wisdom of ages shines from this raven's eyes.  He was such a wise old bird.  Like the butterfly, he can be in your home in minutes! He's available as a digital download also.

This is Murphy.  I love the graceful curving lines of his form, and the graceful way his mane flows over his neck.

Here's a white tiger, created digitally, for those persons who love tigers!  I think he'd be great in a little girls know those little girls who love pink?

Etsy has made digital downloads of photos easy for us to use.  Purchase the image, and the download link appears.  Click to bring the photo into your computer.  From there, you can print it out on your home printer, or put the file on a cd, or usb jump drive.  If you take the cd or jump drive to a photo lab, or professional printer, they can create the physical image for you.

You can find many many nature photos in my Etsy shop.

Visiting the Rocky Mountain Front in autumn.

This is Ear Mountain, which is west of Choteau, Montana.  It got it's name from the old fur trappers, who thought the shape of the mountain resembled the ear of an elephant.  It was quite cold, windy and beautiful along the Front yesterday.  
My friend, Bianca and I were hoping for a great sunshiny day, but the weather produced grey clouds.  That's the way the weather goes in Montana, you never know!  So get on with it and do your thing....:)

We took photos in spite of the lack of light and had a great time doing it.

This is Bear.  He loves the water!  It didn't matter to him that the water was near freezing, deep, and swift.  He plunged into the Teton River like it was child's play, chasing sticks and rocks we threw for him.

This is how it looks before you get to Blackleaf Canyon.  The fall colors were quite beautiful, and seemed to march along at the base of the mountain.  A storm was moving in over the mountain and we had some bouncing light going on.

All in all, it was a beautiful day, and I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the photos.  I'm posting more in my Etsy shop.  Montana Nature Photos

Stock photos for artists and crafters to use.

Yes, I know.  There are big stock photo agencies all over the place.  There's the morgue file, and others where photos are free to use.

But what I'm doing, is setting up an Etsy shop, where you can purchase a photo for these personal reasons.....
1. Screensaver
2. Print for your wall
3. Add to your scrapbook
4. Add to your journal
5. Print out a card to send a friend
6. Print out a photo gift to send a friend
7. Use portions of the photo in a collage for your own wall
8. Use the photo as a texture or layer in your own digital creation for your home.

Commercial uses you purchase when you buy my photos on Etsy...

1. Use the photo in a collage you intend to sell the original or 1-50 prints.
2. Use an image and print it out on 50 business cards.
3. Use the image as a reference photo to create a painting.

There are many uses for these photos that fit my Etsy license.

Of course, I always retain the copyright to my photos, you are not purchasing that.
