These are the remains of a Sitka tree, once part of a forest standing along the Oregon Coastline at Neskowin, partially petrified and nearly 1,700 years old. The trees were exposed for the first time (just recently) when the beach sand was not replaced after winter storms, something that is new for this coastline and may be the result of global warming. Now barnacles grow on them and they are beginning to decompose. The next quake is overdue, so please enjoy. This scene will vanish when it is subducted during the next quake. Photographed on September 26, 2009.

This archival giclee print offers an exquisite range of color, tone and brilliancy faithfully capturing this atmospheric subject. Although the view is wide the perspective is natural inviting the eye to explore the scene in all of its glorious detail. Makes a strong impression. Suitable for immediate safe viewing (the print is shrink wrapped on foam core board) and ready for framing.

Priority Mail is shipped Flat, Fully Insured and includes Tracking. We have nearly 3,000 successful shipments since 2001 and stand at 100% feedback at all of our three other internet stores.

"ANCIENT SITKA" Copyright 2009 by Clyde Keller


Hi, I'm a photographer and artist selling my fine art prints at clydekellerphoto.etsy.com.

My work is sold as Fine Art Giclee (inkjet) prints or fade resistant Fuji Crystal Archive (photographic) prints.

Clyde is known internationally for his historic photographs of Robert F. Kennedy. His RFK images are featured in Rory Kennedy's documentary film, "ETHEL" which debuted at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights has recently acquired key images from Clyde's RFK portfolios for their collection. Historic photos of author Ken Kesey, William Burroughs and actor Bill Murray are featured in Mark Christensen's book Acid Christ. Clyde's portrait of actor/director Warren Beatty is the cover photo for Peter Biskind's, Star. Several vintage documentary images appear in a new NFL films project, entitled, "Fearsome Foursome" as well as Dan Forrer's upcoming HBO documentary film centering on the birth of Hip Hop music. The Seattle Museum of History and Science now features his vintage Seattle skyline panoramas. His regional portraits of surviving pioneer families (and characters) appear in several new books, periodicals and webzines, including Ken Bilderback's, Creek with No Name, a new soft cover about the history of Cherry Grove, Oregon.

Clyde is the grandson of Clyde Leon Keller, (1872-1962) an important Oregon-based Plein-Air Impressionist Painter. His portfolios can be viewed at www.clydekeller.com.


September 16, 2012-- Featured in the treasury entitled, FLUID AND MOVING!

Curated by Elizabeth Graf, a talented artist painter whose work maybe viewed at:


I grew up on Long Island, New York, which is an island AND a long peninsula (connected by bridges) not far from the beach and I now live in Florida, which is a long peninsula (connected by land) -- and I am not far from the beach. From the moment I could hold a crayon I have been an artist -- and possessed a "light bulb" inside my head that was always shining. It is a wonderful way to live Life -- being creative and always inspired. I feel very lucky.

I have shown in Manhattan, upstate New York, on both coasts of Florida (including Miami and Miami Beach). For a while I had an 8 foot x 8 foot mural along Collins Avenue in South Beach. One of the paintings on this website was made into a billboard that stood for a month along the bay in Sarasota, FL.

Artisan Statement:

When creating pieces for Bella Rosina Jewelry I think of all the women in my life who have led me, nurtured me, inspired me, taught me and still befriend me every single day. Honoring these women in my designs is befitting and necessary as these women are beautiful, strong and endearing.

All Bella Rosina Jewelry pieces are created with the finest of materials: Italian glass direct from Murano and Venice, Czech glass, Swarovski crystal, Vintage glass, American 925 Sterling Silver, Italian 925 Sterling Silver and American 14K Gold Fill. There are no counterfeits and no inferior quality materials. Supporting the American businesses, Italian glass makers, Czech glass makers and Austrian glass makers who have been creating

Bella Rosina is Italian for beautiful rose. Once when I asked my Grandfather to tell me some stories about my Grandmother, he said to me, "she is my rose, my beautiful rose." Rose is my Grandmother's name and as a little girl growing up in New York, her mother, who was a recent immigrant from Italy, called her "Rosina" which translates to Rose. My Grandfather was right, my Grandmother is a beautiful Rose and even more so when she wears Bella Rosina Jewelry!

If you're ready to bring the glories of the natural world into your home or share them with friends and family, this is the site for you. The Pacific Northwest from Puget Sound to northern California and the Great Lakes region provide the natural wonders that I try to capture.

Fifty-plus-years-old, and I still live like I drive – faster than the law allows, with rampant joy in the journey. Shooting photos is my way of celebrating this drop-dead gorgeous world, a way to share the joy with you.

You’ll find my work really is “naked-eye,” with minimal Photoshop enhancement. I want you to see the world as it is, not technologized beyond recognition. If you see a photo you like and want it made into postcards or greeting cards, blank or with a poem or a few lines, just drop me a note and I’ll make it happen.
