    Butterfly at Botanical Gardens

    The Schoolhouse Gallery is pleased to feature a metal print (12″ x 12″) of Denise Lilly’s “Butterfly at Botanical Gardens.” The print is on exhibit and for sale at our gallery this spring.

    Denise Lilly began photographing nature as a child, capturing images in her own backyard or visiting Maine’s ample state parks with her family. Over the years, she’s continued to hone her self-taught photography skills while capturing images in the Northwest and Northeast. While nature photography is her primary photographic interest, she also dabbles in portrait and product photography. (See more of her work on her website.)

    Lilly’s “Butterfly at Botanical Gardens” was taken at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay. While she lived in Kingfield, Lilly worked at the Schoolhouse gallery with John and Cindy. She now resides near the coast in Topsham, Maine.

    Nature Photography Image of the Month

    As a full moon rose over the tufa formations at Mono Lake on the eastern side of the High Sierras in California, Cindy Orcutt was in a position to make this dramatic image.  By framing the moon between the nearby tufa spires, she achieved her planned composition by the contrasting circular from of the moon with the triangular shapes of the tufa.
