I had been searching for the most pristine, photogenic common loon (Gavia immer) nest for over a decade, with no luck. I found this nest by happenstance while on vacation with my family. I devoted the next two days to documenting this immaculate situation. I proceeded to spend hours on end submerged neck-deep in muck and vegetation. While I had captured many great images of this nest, I hadn't captured the ONE... On my last evening with the nest I was hoping the sky would clear and give me the opportunity to make something astounding. Just before the sun set, the clouds began to dissipate, allowing the sun to backlight the loon and nest just as seen in this image.

This a natural white pearl-gloss paper that will not yellow and offers a phenomenal color gamut, clarity, and an exceptionally long life. These are loose prints shipped rolled around a hard cardboard tube, enclosed in a protective package.
The Metal and Acrylic options are printed by one of the industry's best labs. Both options offer a clean modern appearance to the artwork, which looks as if it's floating off the wall with the included hanging hardware. The Metal prints are lightweight, durable and have a HD glossy finish that come ready to hang via float hanger attached to the back of the piece. The Acrylic prints are lustre fine-art paper mounted to 1/4" thick glossy acrylic with di-bond backing and a cleat hanger.
