This is the epitome of how man and nature need to co-exist, if we are to have images like this endure. The solitude of the heron silhouetted against the city. I just love it. Your features are so well deserved!

Nice work

Wonderful reflective landscape vista!

Beautiful in b/w and so serene and peaceful...Love the Heron, so hard to capture. f/l

Stunning photograph!! :)

Great CityScape !

Wonderful b& the title and composition.....v/f !!

I love the composition, balance, texture, and tone. This photo brings back fond memories of visiting British Columbia. Added to my favorites.

This superb, Lisa. Well conceived and captured composition. Love the B&W treatment and contrasts. L.

An excellent B&W image. v

Very nice B & W. Great view, the heron is a great capture. Such a peaceful, thoughtful scene. L

That's quite a view your bird friend has! Congratulations on being featured in "Images That Excite You."

What a very nice presentation Lisa!! v/f/t

Such a strong panoramic in black and while. Like the reflections and the lone heron.

I purchased this for a gift and the recipient was blown away. The artistry is alive in this bag with Frida. Perfect!

I love the quality of pixel printing for my new tote bags by FineArtAmerica

I absolutely LOVE Monica's artwork and it's extra special to be able to carry her artwork around with me wherever I go. Quality of the bag is good, too!

I’m very pleased with my Back2bike bag from artist John Kurtyka. The bag is high quality so it holds my library books quite securely. And since I’m a bike rider, I love the picture, so unique, people notice it and comment so I tell them about this website and the unique works of this artist.

Gorgeous photo on the bag. Loved that I could adjust the photo size to suit my preference. Wanted to use for going to the health food store as I need to replace the 15 year old canvas, washable bags I have now. These will not last as long as those canvas bags. I could even deal with slight fading when I needed to wash them. These do not feel washable. Cheap mesh "fabric" on the interior will tear. Disappointed in the fabric on the inside and outside.

I was hoping for a heavyweight cotton canvas bag to use for grocery shopping; this will not be it. I wanted a bag that would be washable. This has a cheap mesh fabric on the interior that will tear in short order. The exterior is some sort of nylon or other synthetic fabric that I do not feel comfortable washing. I guess I didn't realize what kind of fabric it was made of. It is beautiful but not useful for my needs.

Artist's Description

I went walking Easter morning and spied this tranquil scene of a heron contemplating the Burnaby cityscape. Artist's Commentary: In composing this shot, I was attracted by the heron as he seemed to be enjoying the view as I was enjoying the view of him enjoying the view. I found myself contemplating the contrast of city and nature. In post production, I chose to play up contrasts to expand upon that theme. On another note, Burnaby, BC is one of the most beautiful places on earth. There are many natural parks, numerous lakes, and trees everywhere. I delight at being able to drive a few minutes from my high-rise and immerse myself in nature. I feel a sense of sadness for the concrete cities. A lot of green space has been lost to make room for us. I wonder when our population explosion will end. I hope that this piece will bring a sense of tranquility to your home. Artist's Finishing Recommendations: FAA's fashionable and luminescent Metal Print would be my pick to play up...
