We are pleased to share Doug’s gorgeous flying swans photo and frame design. Doug, a bird lover, was shooting photos of wildlife at Fort Snelling. When this group of swans came flying by over Snelling Lake, he captured them with a quick series of shots through a nearby bush, that helped make for a really interesting photo. Since swans can fly up to seventy miles per hour, Doug said he was lucky to capture this group the way he did.
He printed the photo himself on a Canon Pro-100 and brought the print to us for framing. Together we found a dark gray mottled solid core mat that had a hint of bronze in it that blended with the colors in the background of the photo. We then found a water-spotted frame that completed the design. Because of the darkness of the photo, we chose Museum Glass to eliminate glare. We and Doug were thrilled with the result! The flying swans jumped out of the frame, and the subtle colors of the background looked great with the mats and frame. Enjoy!
