Sales Success: Solstice Kayakers

I have just learned that two of my photographs from the “Right Place, Right Time” exhibit were sold at the Finger Lakes Gallery and Frame in Canandaigua. The Letchworth Sunrise photo had been selected best in the show and it sold in a 16×30-in size on canvas. I have mentioned this image in previous articles. A second photograph is features in this article. I call it Solstice Kayakers. It is one of my Solstice Series taken this past summer from Durand-Eastman Beach. I had some other shots of the sunrise and I was pleased to see in the distance four kayakers head out onto the lake just as the sun was rising above the horizon. I suspect it was four friends enjoying their own company as well as a brilliant sunrise on the first day of summer. I can only image how it looked to them when they were far from shore looking to the horizon. The sun was still at a good angle when they began to paddle back to shore and I was fortunate to have them cross the beams of the reflecting sunlight on Lake Ontario. I certainly took advantage of some image processing to pump up a bit of enhanced sunrise saturation. I had this print in the “Rochester Moments” show printed on the high gloss aluminum and it made the surface look like copper. The print that sold at Finger Lakes Gallery and Frame was 17×22-in canvas with a blackĀ float frame. Just after the kayers passed the sunbeams a powered sailboat also went by giving a similar silhouette look. They look good as a pair. I’ll post that one another day.
