This photo show a damselfly (not a dragonfly) chilling near the Salt River near Mesa, AZ

The Salt River is formed by the confluence of the White River and the Black River in the White Mountains of eastern Gila County. The White and Black rivers, and other tributaries of the upper Salt River, drain the region between the Mogollon Rim in the north and the Natanes Mountains and Natanes Plateau to the east and south. Tributaries of the Salt River also drain the Sierra Ancha and Mazatzal Mountains. The White and Black rivers drain the White Mountains in the Fort Apache Indian Reservation. Together the two rivers drain an area of about 1,900 square miles (4,900 km2).[2] The Salt River, along with the Black River, forms the boundary between the Fort Apache Indian Reservation to the north and the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation to the south.

The Salt River is fed by numerous perennial streams that start as springs and seeps along the Mogollon Rim and in the White Mountains. The Salt River is perennial from its tributary headwaters to Granite Reef Diversion Dam near Mesa.[2]

How was this Damselfly artwork created ?

I first spotted this gorgeous insect on the water, where it was drinking. After following it around with my 600mm Sigma lens I finally got it to sit down and pose for me. I used my Benro Tripod, Nikon D810 and Sigma 150-600 Sports lens and took a 1/2000 shot. Don’t you love the crazy creamy bokeh ?

Welcome to our weekly artwork of the week series that showcases our most unique and popular wall art products and digital downloads. This week we feature one of the many framed artworks in our store: Foggy Windmill

What does this artwork show ?

This artwork can be purchased as a framed print.

This photo depicts the windmills of Kinderdijk during sunrise – a very cold, very foggy sunrise.

Kinderdijk (Dutch pronunciation: [ˌkɪndərˈdɛi̯k]) is a village in the municipality of Molenlanden, in the province of South Holland, Netherlands. It is located about 15 km (9 miles) east of Rotterdam.

Kinderdijk is situated in the Alblasserwaard polder at the confluence of the Lek and Noord rivers. To drain the polder, a system of 19 windmills was built around 1740. This group of mills is the largest concentration of old windmills in the Netherlands. The windmills of Kinderdijk are one of the best-known Dutch tourist sites. They have been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1997.

In the Alblasserwaard, problems with water became more and more apparent in the 13th century. Large canals, called weteringen in Dutch, were dug to get rid of the excess water in the polders. However, the drained soil continued to subside, while the level of the river rose due to the river’s sand deposits. After a few centuries, an additional way to keep the polders dry was required.

How was this Foggy Windmill artwork created ?

Just like last weeks artwork, Kinderdijk is all the way on the other side of the country, I had to drive very early winter morning to (what I hoped was a) sunrise. When I arrived there, I could hardly see the windmills from the parking lot and it the temperature had dropped so much my batteries didn’t work very well. I used my Benro Tripod, Nikon D810 and 28-300 mm lens and took a long exposure. I later did some conversion to black and white in Lightroom, but it’s not that there were a lot of colors to begin with !
