“Hummingbird on Blue I’ by Bob Kroll

Anna’s Hummingbirds are the only hummingbirds to stay in Oregon year-round, and they are a  common visitor to our garden and feeder. Here, a male Anna’s is perched on Arbor Vitae, showing  blue clouds. This composition was created using image processing software. Only 30 of these  artist-signed photographs will be made. This limited-edition photograph is printed at 12” x 18”  on archival UltraPro Satin paper with Ultrachrome® pigmented inks and is framed with acid-free  matte and backing, as well as UV-filtering ArtGlass, for maximum longevity.”  

“Hummingbird on Blue II” by Bob Kroll

Since I retired from veterinary specialty practice (as a board-certified veterinary neurologist), my wife Nancy and I spend a majority of our time on the North Oregon coast in Cannon Beach, contributing our time as volunteers to North Coast Land Conservancy. In addition, I serve on the board of Cannon Beach Gallery. Bob Kroll

“Caspian Terns can be seen along the Pacific Northwest coast when migrating during the Spring and Fall.  Here,  silhouetted against the colorful sky about 15 minutes after sunset over the blue Pacific.”  BK

“Tern into Dusk II” by Bob Kroll

“The  blur of the background was created by intentionally moving the camera horizontally during a long exposure  (¼ second). Images of the Terns were taken at a separate time and layered over the background, using  image processing software, to create this composition. Each panel is printed at 12” x 18” on archival Art  White premium matte paper with Ultrachrome® pigmented inks and is framed with acid-free mat and  backing under UV-filtering ArtGlassfor maximum longevity.”  Bob Kroll

“Terns into Dusk I, II, and II” by Bob Kroll

The three separate images are available as framed or signed prints with mats to display beautifully as a triptych.

Photography is a means of self-expression and creativity, and it gives me joy in 4 different ways.  First, I find it joyful being outdoors in nature, envisioning a unique composition, and creating a photo that will display that vision.  Second, there is joy once the photo is “developed” in seeing that vision realized.  Third, it brings me joy to share images with others and know that the work is appreciated.  And fourth, there is joy in continuing to learn and improve as an artist.
