Mountain Sunsets

I have been recording some beautiful sunsets over Cripple Creek for some time now, only with my phone, too lazy to really get out and get the best location and shoot with my good camera. Finally got the chance yesterday and I think I got some good ones 🙂 The views of the western mountains along Highway 67 are great for sunset watching so that’s where I headed!

Mountain SunsetThere is a great view of the Collegiates near the top of the pass along with some good pullouts, and I was pleased to see some good color poking through the clouds at this point 🙂 It was pretty dark right there though, so I steadied myself on the hood of the old Dodge to make sure I wasn’t disappointed later on by a blurry capture

Cripple Creek SunsetFrom that point on I saw nothing but darkness until I reached the overlook over Cripple Creek. I was afraid the one stop was all I was going to get but was happy to see that there was still some good light over the Sangre De Cristo Range when I arrived. The lights of the town were also putting on a good show by that time, so I got my first nighttime image of the town as well 🙂 I am hoping to soon get downtown at night to capture the Christmas lights in but it doesn’t appear to be all set up yet, so that will have to wait.

Sangre SunsetFinally, the last of the sun’s rays were streaming over the mountain peaks in the south, reminding me of how these mountains got their name, “The Blood of Christ”. Soon as it is with all sunsets, it was all over… nothing left to do but go home and process the images.

These and more are now available for sale as wall art, clothing, gift items and of course Christmas cards! Be sure to get your orders in early as soon the holiday rush will start to affect the postal delivery! Click here to learn more about my product line and how to order!

Christmas Gifts

With the Christmas gift season at hand, I thought I would write a quick post about the ordering process for gifts and prints from my website. First of all, please do not be concerned that you are going to cause me to be overworked! Back in the day I tried to manage orders that people placed with me by myself and it was a lot of work! However I have wisely relegated that process to a trusted company that is well equipped to handle this process for me. Other than uploading a picture to the website there is no work for me. Once I upload the picture, my involvement is complete.

winter-buckI am also pleased to announce that coffee mugs have been added to the list of products available with a S. W. Krull Imaging picture. This list of products now includes Christmas cards,  coffee mugs, prints on glossy metal and acrylic sheets, canvas wrapped on wood, traditional framed prints, t-shirts, phone cases, shower curtains, handbags and beach towels. So to order a picture product, you just go to the S. W. Krull Imaging Fine Art website where you will see a collection of pictures which represent all the different categories of art I have displayed on my site.

From there just click on the image representing your favorite category, for example, Rocky Mountain Winter. The category will open and you will see a collection of winter images. Find one you like and click on the image, bringing up an enlargement of the image and an interactive list of products available for that image.The lab receives the order, creates the product and ships the order, all without any involvement on my part. Orders thus far have been fulfilled promptly with very high quality productions.

I do hope you will consider ordering your gifts this year from a small business rather than just going down to the local huge corporation and lining the pockets of a unknown faceless CEO somewhere. Small business is the backbone of America and it badly needs your support!
