Love the Brandenburg Gallery. I also enjoy Mr. Bradenburg's facebook page and the images and videos that he posts there. His story about the wolf pack is heart breaking.

We own one of his paintings and enjoy looking at the rest of his collection. He really is a genius with wildlife art. Very expensive but fun to look at.

I was in Ely for the day and stepped into his gallery. I ended up buying one of his prints. Beautiful photography from one of America's most successful. Even if you don't purchase anything, step inside and see this beautiful photography.

This gallery has a nice array of all Jim's works. Be sure to view the cinematography. Plan to spend more than an hour because there are many prints. Join the Mailing list. The ladies working were very friendly and knowledgeable. So glad we stopped.
