Scenic | Gallery Prints | Printroom

I'm trying something new in regards to getting prints to my customers.
A few people have expressed interest in prints.
I now have an account with printroom.com which you can view and order prints directly to your door at: danlubbers.printroom

I currently only have a few of my "scenic" shots available.
If anyone is interested in a print of another photograph on my site,
email me: (lubbers.dan @ gmail.com) and I'll see what I can do.

More images will be added in the near future...
Your feedback is the best way I can cater to your needs.

I still print locally in Dye Sublimation, so if your interested in that printing format email for that as well.

Jim James & Daniel Martin Moore's Mountaintop Removal Benefit Show @ 21C

I would like to preface this by saying:
"I did not end up shooting that many photographs of the show this evening. In a crowd of aprx. 300, there were probably 1/3 or more with cameras. Most of whom were shooting "in my opinion" excessively, especially with flashes. I can only imagine how distracting it was for the speakers and musicians to deal with this throughout the entire show. There was one person in particular that felt the need to shoot at a rate of 5-7 fps for a period of 3-5 sec each time he wanted to take "a" shot. I understand that is a way of getting "the shot," but for real this isn't football. People paid good money to "enjoy" the speakers and music not to hear camera shutters and be blinded by flashes every other second. I'm just saying, it would be nice if a photographer would get the shot and step back to enjoy the performance as well."

Anyways... Enough of my ranting.

Out of 25 images that I shot, here are a few I thought were worthy:

Wendell Berry
Daniel Martin Moore
Jim James ( Yim Yames ) & Daniel Martin Moore
Their right feet were both tapping in sync.

Moon Halo | Moon Ring

I was heading home the other night on Dec. 1st and saw the
beautiful phenomenon of the moon halo up in the sky.
I quickly ran in the house grabbed my equipment and
was able to get these two shots before it dissipated.

I remember there being a superstition/folklore to the event.
This is what I was able to find about it:

When there is a ring around the moon bad weather usually follows within about 24-48 hours. This is because the halo or ring around the moon is caused by millions of tiny ice particles that form high in the upper atmosphere. The effect is produced because the crystals are scattering the moonlight by diffracting the light through their little hexagonal prisms. These ice crystals generally form in thin cirrus clouds that normally precede a warm front by one or two days. Typically, a warm front will be associated with a low pressure system which is commonly referred to as a storm.

Direct shot - Notice the beautiful colors in the ring.
Very Ominous...
