Artwork Release: Grizzly Night

Today I'm excited to announce a new piece to my artwork portfolio, Grizzly Night! This photograph took over two years to pursue and three consecutive nights shooting when conditions finally lined up. This was a 3.5 minute exposure in near darkness, utilizing a graduated neutral density filter to darken the sky and illuminating the trees with an aerial light painting technique. 

This is a limited edition of 100 pieces. Regardless of artwork style or size, each piece counts toward the total. Once 100 pieces are sold, this photograph will never be printed again.
