Click on the photo to go to A Montana View SmugMug site – click the buy button in the upper right had area – Choose “metal” if you like the idea of printing on metal.
Finish choices for metal are High Gloss or Satin (with the white background, I think I would choose Satin). Metal prints have a float mount (hanger) on the back.
The below sizes don’t need cropping but you can chose a different size and crop it to your liking. Here are some prices for metal prints that you will see when you hit the “buy” button.
4×6 $28
8×12 $42
12×18 $78
16×24 $137
20×30 $186

Osprey with a sucker fish on the bank of the Bitterroot River

While floating, we came around a corner and this is what we saw on the bank. Photos are in the order which they were taken. It did NOT fly away although it tried!
