You may have noticed that I recently added several portfolios to my blog (or not, since I didn’t tell anyone…). The links hang out in the left-side menu. Most of the photos I posted on this blog found their way into at least one of the portfolios.
I hope you’ll take another trip through them.
I also set up an Etsy page to sell handmade cards and prints. The cards are 5″ x 7″ (12.7 x 17.8 cm), come with a matching envelope, are blank inside, and have a signed 4″ x 6″ (10.2 x 15.3cm) photo mounted on the front. The 80# cardstock is white. The photo title and location are handwritten on the back of each card. They come in a clear cellulose (biodegradable, non-cellophane) sleeve. They are made to order and can ship anywhere.
Photos included in this post and the Sale Portfolio are hyperlinked to the appropriate Etsy page.
Any other photo from The Road not Taken Enough portfolios may be special-ordered as a card or a paper/metal print. I am currently only able to accept orders through Etsy. Please contact me there for sizes and prices.
The Road not Taken Enough leads to some amazing places. I hope you are enjoying the ride.

re: Three landscapes and a soaking shed
…I can’t count.
Or I changed my mind.
A wild winter ride to iconic Central Oregon hot springs offered these landscapes. The road to Summer Lake is a beautiful stretch of little-used highway along the western edge of the Great Basin. Sagebrush gives way to alkali lakes, winds rip across the open flat, and clouds create another dimension of life above the high desert.
