From Ireland With Love

I have visited many parts of our beautiful world, fun places that I would love to go back to. One of my favorites is traveling by car through Ireland. I haven't been there in several years. But I would go there in a minute if my partner said "Let's go!"

This photograph is of my favorite castles and pub! Bunratty Castle and Durty Nelly's.

Metallic Paper Something New For Me

I am just beginning to print some of my images on metallic paper. I like the slight 3-D effect it gives and the pearl like look it give your image. Unfortunately, you can't see how great it looks on this Zebra Butterfly. It just doesn't translate to your computer or Etsy shop.

I shot this Zebra butterfly in South Dakota in a wonderful butterfly house. I have photographed them in the wild down in Flamingo in the Everglades. I textured and created the fringe edge on this image.
