The Lonely Road – the 9×9 Limited Edition Print for the Book

First, a little update on “Connecting the Community”. Thanks to the new Twitter Lists, I put together the first 150 people or so that signed up… I’ll add more later. You can see the Stuck In Customs Twitter Community list here. It’s a great way to get started… just go through and follow those people, and you’ll be off and running! Now, if Tweetdeck will just let us auto-import a Twitter list and make it a column, that would be great! (if you want to add your name, add it to this thread and I will update the Twitter List later!)

Second, we are announcing the print that will be coming with the Premium package of my upcoming book about HDR. These will all be Limited Edition, Numbered series, and autographed prints. That is, after we stop taking pre-orders, we will stop the number and that will be that. It is a 9″x9″ print, and we have just gone through a selection process, where we had samples sent to us from different printing companies (you can see a bad iPhone shot of the selection process here). We’ve chosen the finest quality.  These will all be collector’s items, and normally we would sell these prints for over $100 each, so it’s quite a deal!

As you can tell from the pricing, I’m not in this to make a killing on the unit cost! I wanted to reward fans and friends with something special for being some of the early believers. I’m kind of a softie, frankly… and I have such a friendly relation with y’all – I feel strange charging you a lot of money!  I think this evolving artform is just fantastic, and I do all of this for the pure joy of it.

The print is called “The Lonely Road to the Dinosaur Dig”. It was taken one evening in northern Montana near the Canadian border. I was on a dinosaur dig with Jack Horner and had taken an ATV out on a joy ride one night. It unceremoniously caught on fire, and left me stranded a long way from home with just my camera and the sunset.

    Ah, yes. Sitting in the shade of a fence post and barbed wire and listening to the mosquitos try to carry you off. But pretty in its own way. Nice feel. That captures my memories of N. Montana on the “canvas”.

    I give up on meebo. The picture doesn’t appear in the post on facebook. I saved it in My Trey Ratcliff folder and will add it to my album on facebook. I love this photo!!! All the pictures I save are part of my screensaver, lol. I have way to many photos in My Pictures. I probably need to transfer some to a CD, dah. Anyway, anxiously awaiting the book and hope I get a picture?? Either way, it will be great!! Thanks again for sharing all you do with us, Trey!! And for making your book affordable for all of us, too!

    I love the feeling of the world being not so busy here! It gives you that chance to catch up with life doesn’t it… “Relax” a lawyer used to say to his clients and for that it is a great reason to look at your lovely view and realize that “life goes on in some areas a little slower”…

    Thanks for this is a wonderful peaceful piece to that rushed hurried world outside for so many… I look forward to buying your book and getting this from you…
