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 !

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

What does this artwork show ?

This artwork can be purchased in two different frames – Silver and Black.

This photo depicts the windmills of Kinderdijk during 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.

How was this Kinderdijk Windmills artwork created ?

Because Kinderdijk is all the way on the other side of the country, I had to drive a whopping 1.5 hours to catch the sunrise. As always, the weather was an issue, but I was lucky that the clouds just moved out of the way to present this gorgeous spectacle. I used my Benro Tripod, Nikon D810 and Rokinon 14mm lens with a LEE Big Stopper to capture this with a shutter speed of 30 seconds to get the water nice and smooth.

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

What does this artwork show ?

This artwork can be purchased in two different frames

The black vulture (Coragyps atratus), also known as the American black vulture, is a bird in the New World vulture family whose range extends from the southeastern United States to Peru, Central Chile and Uruguay in South America. Although a common and widespread species, it has a somewhat more restricted distribution than its compatriot, the turkey vulture, which breeds well into Canada and south to Tierra del Fuego. It is the only extant member of the genus Coragyps, which is in the family Cathartidae. Despite the similar name and appearance, this species is unrelated to the Eurasian black vulture, an Old World vulture in the family Accipitridae (which includes eagles, hawks, kites, and harriers). It inhabits relatively open areas which provide scattered forests or shrublands. With a wingspan of 1.5 m (4.9 ft), the black vulture is a large bird though relatively small for a vulture. It has black plumage, a featherless, grayish-black head and neck, and a short, hooked beak.

The black vulture is a scavenger and feeds on carrion, but will also eat eggs or kill newborn animals (livestock such as cattle). In areas populated by humans, it also feeds at garbage dumps. It finds its meals either by using its keen eyesight or by following other (New World) vultures, which possess a keen sense of smell. Lacking a syrinx—the vocal organ of birds—its only vocalizations are grunts or low hisses.

How was this Young Vulture artwork created ?

This vulture was found in one of the dead trees next to the Salt River, close to Mesa, AZ. We literally stared at each other for a a while before I took this shot. The same afternoon, the moon was setting and I took a shot of the 3/4th moon. These shots were later combined in post processing.

Why buy this Young Vulture artwork from us ?

This gorgeous beast will definitely capture the attention of the visitors of your home. With the moon on the background it looks pretty badass, right ? On top of this, this artwork will help the animal rescues in Arizona. Win-win !

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

What does this artwork show ?

This artwork can be downloaded for less than $ 10 and will look great on your desktop or as a background for your Zoom meeting. It shows the Moselbend near Bremm.

In 1051, Bremm had its first documentary mention as Brembe.

While cultivating the land in the 1950s, winegrowers reported problems that arose during ploughing due to foundation walls in the ground. Fragments of typically Roman building materials at this time lent further weight to the supposition of Bremm’s Roman origin.

In the Middle Ages, Bremm’s most important landholder was until 1802 the Stuben Augustinian Convent. The first church was mentioned in 1097. The one that stands now was built in the late 15th century; in 1895 it was remodelled and enlarged. Like all the municipality’s foregoing churches, it is consecrated to Saint Lawrence. The lovely Baroque altar from 1630 was sold to Schloss Gondorf at the time of the remodelling, but in 1968 it was bought back for DM 30,000.

In 2002, Bremm was awarded the title “Loveliest Village in Rhineland-Palatinate” in the contest Unser Dorf hat Zukunft (“Our Village Has a Future”).

How was this Moselbend artwork created ?

When I visited this place in 2017, I hiked from the bottom of the valley towards the cross on the top (Kreuz). The view was gorgeous, as you can see in these related artwork. At that time I decided to come to the same place but then for sunrise, the next day at 5am. I arrive the next day, and the fog is so dense that I could not even find my way from the parking lot to the viewpoint. I though all hope on a good shot was lost… I decided to wait it out a little on the bench on the left until like magic, the fog suddenly dissapeared and this gorgeous view presented itself.

Funny anecdote: when I went for a hike later that morning, I ran into two professional photographers that flew in especially from Poland for this place. They weren’t at the top that morning, but at the bottom. Their view was maybe 10 feet… all fog 🙂 sometimes you’re lucky, sometimes not !

Why buy this Moselbend artwork from us ?

This view doesn’t repeat itself in this form – the clouds truly make it an unique work. Who doesn’t love to be above the clouds… You can keep looking at this work forever, and you might find some new features every time you zoom in ! On top of this, this artwork will help the animal rescues in Arizona. Win-win !

Welcome to our weekly artwork of the week series that showcases our most unique and popular wall art products. This week we feature one of the many digital artworks in our store: Sunset at the Mont-Saint-Michel.

What does this artwork show ?

This artwork can be downloaded for less than $ 10 and will look great on your desktop or as a background for your Zoom meeting. It shows, as the title makes clear, the Mont-Saint-Michel in France, a tidal island with an abbey. The original site was founded by an Irish hermit, who gathered a following from the local community. From roughly the fifth to the eighth century, Mont Saint-Michel belonged to the territory of Neustria and, in the early ninth century, was an important place in the marches of Neustria.

How was this Mont-Saint-Michel artwork created ?

When we visited this place in 2017, the weather was not cooperating at all. The light changed from sun to almost darkness within minutes due to the storms rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean. I decided to wait it out and hope for the perfect light, which came just before sunset. Only minutes later it started raining.

Why buy this Mont-Saint-Michel artwork from us ?

Whether you have visited France or not, everybody knows of this place. And it is truly a piece of history that has no match in the world. You can keep looking at this work forever, and you might find some new features every time you zoom in ! On top of this, this artwork will help the animal rescues in Arizona. Win-win !

Welcome to our weekly artwork of the week series that showcases our most unique and popular wall art products. This week we feature one of my favorites: A five panel view of the sun setting over Phoenix, AZ seen from Dobbins Lookout.

What does this artwork show ?

This artwork comes in two sizes. Five 16×20 or five 8×10 prints can be anchored to the wall in frameless glass.

How was this Dobbins Lookout artwork created ?

Dobbins Lookout is the highest point accessible by trail at 2,330 feet (710 meters) as part of the South Mountain Park in Phoenix, AZ. While the sunsets in Arizona are often spectacular, for this place the best sunsets are from July-September, when the sun sets over the city.

Why buy this Dobbins Lookout artwork from us ?

Anyone who visits Phoenix will see the mountains surrounding it. Whoever has enjoyed the view from this place or has hiked the many trails in the park is undoubtedly impressed by the natural beauty so close to an urban center with over 5 million people. The size and shape of the artwork makes it a great choice for a hallway or above a bed or couch. On top of this, this artwork will help the animal rescues in Arizona. Win-win !

Welcome to our weekly artwork of the week series that showcases our most unique and popular wall art products. This week we feature: A gorgeous and surreal fall photo of a river in the woods of Devon in Southwest England.

What does this artwork show ?

This 25.5×19.5 inch frame and 16×20 printed artwork captures the river Plym in Devonshire / Devon and it’s green, mossy forests.

How was this England artwork created ?

This part of England is famous for its gorgeous green forest, little hamlets and winding rivers. In South Devon the landscape consists of rolling hills dotted with small towns, such as Dartmouth, Ivybridge, Kingsbridge, Salcombe, and Totnes. To capture this I used my Nikon D810 and a 28mm lens to and took at longer exposure to get the water nice and silky (all while trying not to slip on the mossy bridge over the river…). Some additional coloring and filters were applied in Photoshop. This framed artwork of England is printed on high quality luster paper and framed in a black frame.

Why buy this England artwork from us ?

This artwork shows you are a man or woman of class. Knights from hundreds of years ago saw this similar scene when they were en route to their next conquest. Who wouldn’t want a piece of history in the castle (or small and modest apartment…). The subdued colors will go great with dark wood furniture for your dining room. On top of this, this artwork will help the animal rescues in Arizona. Win-win ! Learn more about our policies.

Welcome to our weekly Artwork of the week series that showcases our most unique and popular wall art products. This week we feature: Tree at Sunset.

What does this artwork show ?

This 14×14 frame and 10×10 printed artwork captures an oak tree in the Netherlands during sunset. It was shot at a place that is close to my heart, and a place that I have spent time at since my early youth. Close to my home in Dommelen, The Netherlands, there is a field connecting the residential area with a little bridge over the Keersop river. At this field, a place where many people walk their dogs, stands a majestic oak tree that must be over 50 years old. Hilary and I started calling it the Moody Tree, because it is portrays such a different mood in each season.

How was this “Sunset Tree” artwork created ?

As you can see, the photo was captured during sunset in the winter. A rain storm had just passed through an hour before, creating a sunset spectacle that is rarely seen. I used my Nikon D810 and a 28mm lens to shoot right into the sun. Some additional coloring and filters were applied in Photoshop. This framed artwork is printed on high quality luster paper and framed in a square frame with gold edge.

Why buy this “Sunset Tree” artwork from us ?

This will for sure look great in your hall way or bedroom. According to We Know Your Dreams, the sunset represents “romance, twilight, beginning of darkness, change, transformation and nature. If you see yourself romantically waking with your partner in your sunset dream, it means that your bond with him is going to strengthen.”
