Boardwalk, Old Town Temecula

A little rain, a little sun, a few clouds, and a bunch of people wondering why I'm all bent over taking pictures of the sidewalk...Ahh, the life of a misunderstood photographer...

Enjoy, Stephen

The Clouds that Cool...

Wow! After a couple of days of triple digit heat, 
it was nice to see these clouds come in and cool things off. 
I took this pic this morning in Old Town Temecula.
Enjoy,    Stephen

Cactus and Wine...

I wish the cactus flowers had been in bloom, but there would have been no grapes!
Such is the dilemma of a wine country photographer...

I like Petunias...

I have come to enjoy this Petunia basket on the front porch of my studio in Old Town Temecula.
This one gets early morning sun, followed by bright shade for the rest of the day and seems to be doing quite well.
Petunias are growing on me... and my porch!

Morning Solitude

This morning in the Temecula Valley wine country. I was happy to find a nice morning vineyard view
when from directly above me this balloon descended into the scene... Just lucky I guess...Enjoy!

Spring awakening...

This afternoon I was on a mission to photograph some of the cherry blossoms blooming all over Old Town Temecula. Late in the afternoon, I grabbed my camera, put Nikky on her leash and went on our regular route, past the Temecula Childrens Museum. I knew I would find what I was looking for. But instead of the dramatic cherry blossom close up I anticipated, I ended up with this scene of the creekside park, and I am pleased... Spring awakens!

Limited Edition Canvas Giclee' Prints

For the past couple of years, I have been exploring the new archival canvas products available to photographic artists. I have finally come to the place where I can now offer archival, limited edition canvas prints! I am using 100% cotton archival canvas made by Hahnemuhle Fine Art. The results are simply amazing! When I picked up this piece from my custom framer, I was blown away, the combination of the fine art canvas and the rich traditional moulding was a sight to behold. Above is a picture I took this morning after hanging my first canvas print in the home of Mary and Bob in Menifee, California. If you would like information about these new archival, limited edition canvas prints, feel free to email me here at also, you can view my website here
And for those who are so inclined, you can now follow me on Facebook (yes, it had to happen..;)

Introducing" Gallery 1 of 1"

"Pine Cone, 2008" 1/1
I am proud to announce the beginning of my new project, "Gallery 1 of 1". Each fine art print offered for sale is "one of a kind". You own the only print made! The slogan I came up with is "When you see one, you're seeing the only one". Some other cool features of this project, along with being a single edition fine art print are: 1. When you purchase a "Gallery 1 of 1" print, you have the opportunity to view new prints one week before being shown to the general public. 2. All clients who purchase "Gallery 1 of 1" prints will be invited to my invitation only "print owners" party within the calendar year of your purchase! I am intending that this will be a party at the gallery where other exclusive print offers will be made, more to follow on that... So I hope you take a look at my new project here at: where I have 9 new fine art, "one of a kind" prints for sale. If you have any questions about the prints, feel free to drop me an email:

Thank you for your continued support and encouragement,

~Stephen Eldred
