"A visit to the Audubon Swamp just outside Charleston, SC brought me up close and personal to this creature of the deep. Raised on a berm of soil with nothing separating me from the water?s edge, this shoot was the most exhilarating to date. Keeping my camera steady, I believe, was the key to capturing the shot." Archival Quality Professional Photographic Papers and Inks are used. This is limited production piece signed by the artist.
