Backlit Heron Glows at Sunrise All Occasion Nature Photo Greeting Card


This Great Blue Heron blended in with the rocks until the sun rose and backlit him with glowing light. I heard him splashing in the water, and could barely see him fishing, drinking and bathing as I waited for sunrise. He stood perched on this rock long enough for me to take a couple of photographs before he resumed fishing in the shallow part of Rowland Lake.

The rocks in the background are slate gray, as is the water in the lake as both were still in shadow. You can see a few drops of water flying from the heron's orange beak as he had just finished taking a drink. His golden eye glows as does the outline of this beautiful bird from being backlit.

My nature photograph has been printed onto an all-occasion note or greeting card that is blank inside, ready for your personal message. This is a wonderful card to send to someone who likes birds, nature, herons and art or nature photography.

Please note, my watermark will not be on your note card.

The note card is blank inside to use as stationary for your personal message and left uncoated making it easier to write on. The image is printed on thick 16pt, FSC credited paper stock that has a light satin coating. The card measures 4.13" x 5.82". Plain white envelope included.

Shipped in protective bubble envelope. Usually ships the same or following business day. Free shipping in the US.

My original art photography note cards are a great gift for those who love birds, herons, nature, and fine art photography. They can also be framed and used as wall decor anywhere you need to add a bright spot of interest.

Metal prints and canvas wraps are also available. If you are interested in a larger format, please send me a note; I can turn this image into a print on canvas or metal in any size.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I've been a hobbyist photographer since I was ten years old when I received a Kodak Instamatic camera for my birthday. As an adult my favorite cameras have been Nikon and my favorite content is nature. Flowers and birds abound in my extensive Northwest garden and are a constant source of inspiration.
