Top Ten Photos of 2020 – The Most Wanted Nature Photography Fine Art Prints
In this post, I would like to thank all my customers and share the top ten of my best-selling prints of 2020. I feel very privileged with your trust. Many of us found it to be a difficult year, being stranded at home. I’m to the contrary felt this year was one of the best for me. Having my son near most of the time was a blessing. And not only to flip heavy frames in my shop 🙂 It is the companionship that I was taking for granted until now. I have spent endless hours working into the night in my shop to prepare the prints for my respected patrons. So, here is the best selling art 2020, or humbly put – the most wanted nature photography fine art prints!
1. Spirit of the Earth | Portland. Oregon
There is a certain possibility of me decommissioning this title in 2021 as there are about a dozen copies left before I take it out of circulation. I felt that may happen when I chose to limit my print runs to 100 copies only regardless of print size.
2. Sunburst | Arches National Park
This image was an unexpected bonus of our family road trip to California. It was quite a detour on the back to Canada ways off from highway 15 to the town of Moab. But my wife selflessly insisted that we take a day detour and visit the park. It was totally worth it. Sunburst made it to the top 10 best-selling art of 2020 and I love you, darling!
3. Seaside Wonder | La Jolla – California
4. Lavender Summer | Valensole, France
Shooting this scene was a true photographer’s nightmare. The dusk low light conditions called for a wide-open aperture and reasonable shutter speed to avoid motion blur of constantly moving lavender in the wind. As a result, I had to deal with the squeezed depth of field to just a few inches. To acquire a scene that could be printed in high resolution I had to focus-stack each segment while panning the camera for the wide image. After a couple of weeks of final assembly and cleanup, it was finally ready for the world. And just look at this level of detail!
5. Blue Dawn | Jasper National Park
To get this image I had to cheat a little. I told my family of four that it is just thirty minutes of casual rowing down the lake on a canoe to reach the Spirit Island. When I knew perfectly well that it will be five hour round trip. Even with an electric assist motor on the back of the boat.
6. Summer Dream | Toscana, Italy
On the first couple of days in Italy, I felt so miserable with the jetlag and hot weather. As a result, we had to pull over to the side of the highway just to take power naps to avoid passing out behind the steering wheel. To stay on my mission I had to remind myself that going pro in photography meant I had to make myself available whenever mother nature called. The result is the image from the top 10 best selling prints of 2020
7. In The Spotlight | Antelope Canyon, Arizona
The Antelope Canyon is one of the most wanted destinations for nature enthusiasts and photographers. I know what you may ask – why so red? The original colors of otherwise orange sandstone were intentionally altered to create the Broadway flavor for this piece!
8. Aspen Glow | Canadian Rocky Foothills, Alberta
With twenty-five copies, this is one of the lowest print editions that I offer. There is just one more image in my collection that has only 10 copies of the limited edition print run.
9. Sailor | Ontario, Canada
10. Coastal Vision | San Diego, California | best selling fine art
By back only forgave me two weeks after I have packed and shipped this piece. At some stage, I will have to invest in an overhead crane.
