These little Sandpipers showed up on “our” beach on a bleak spring morning, making a quick stop on their way from South America to Canada. Their annual migration is truly amazing - a few years ago, a research team put a tiny geolocator on a Sandpiper in Canada in June, hoping to be able to map its journey over the next year. When the bird returned, they found it, removed the locator and analyzed the results. It showed that after it left Canada the previous August, it flew nonstop for six days to South America! 

They only stayed on our beach for a couple of days, but I spent a lot of time with them, trying to capture both their beauty as individuals and the abstract appearance of them as a group.

The painterly photograph is printed on matte fine art paper with inks that last for more than a lifetime. It comes unframed or framed, both as a single image and in a set together with “Sandpiper No. 2”, and every order is professionally custom printed.

The prints are also available framed, with or without a white mat (your choice, see the drop down menu above). The wood frames come in black, white, brown, natural or warm silver (see images above for frame colors). All framed pieces have UV-filtering plexiglass and come ready to hang with the necessary hardware already installed.

Choose print only or framed print and frame color in the drop down menus.

Note that the sizes listed are print sizes; mats and frames will add to the final size. The final outside size of a matted and framed 8”x10” print is 12”x14” (1.5” mat + 1” frame), and an 11”x14” print is 17”x20” (2.5” mat + 1” frame). Unmatted framed prints are 1” larger than the print size.

The sizes listed in the drop down menus are all in inches. Please see the last image above for the sizes in centimeters.

The image is professionally printed, carefully wrapped and boxed, and delivered to you within 10 days of your order (allow up to 3 weeks for framed prints, and more time for international orders).
