This photograph was created on the banks of a shallow woodland stream at the height of the English summer. The canopy of trees, directing shafts of sunlight onto the flowing water, produced a spectacular and beautiful display of abstract colour. With a slow shutter and a wide open lens, I waited and watched in wonder as the leaves moved in the breeze and a series of kaleidoscopic visions formed and dissolved before me. This is one of those visions, existing for just a few seconds, now captured forever. The effect becomes almost otherworldly, the dark water and brilliant patterns of light reminiscent of astronomical photography of deep space gas clouds and exploded stars...suggesting the title for this series of images.
Coming in a very limited edition of 25 prints across all sizes and finishes, each print is individually hand-signed and numbered.
The photograph is available either as unmounted prints in a range of sizes from 12x8 inches [30x20cm approx.] to 24x16 inches [61x41cm approx.], and also in ready-to-hang options of 18x12 inch [46x30cm approx.] traditional gallery wrap canvas or modern aluminium mounting. All are produced by an award-winning lab using only the finest quality materials.
Unmounted prints come on Hahnemühle FineArt Pearl 285 g/m² paper, printed with Epson Ultrachrome K3 pigment inks for true museum quality and colourfastness certified for 100 years. These are absolutely the finest quality prints to be found, used by professional photographers when only the best will do, and loved by art collectors for their stunning detail in highlight and shadow as well as depth of tone. 12x8, 15x10 and 18x12 prints come with an additional 0.39" [1cm] white border for easy matting and framing. 24x16 prints come with a 0.79" [2cm] border.
Gallery wrap canvas prints are produced using the same Epson K3 inks as my paper prints, on heavyweight 100% cotton canvas, to create pieces with richness and luminosity along with a wonderfully tactile texture. They are stretched onto a a 0.79" [2cm] frame made from sustainable spruce wood, reinforced for stability and fitted with robust metal corners for easy hanging
Aluminium mounting is the ultimate ready-to-hang enhancement to your home decor, a spectacular image and a sleek and modern mounting system which creates a stunning piece of gallery standard artwork. The photograph is professionally lab-printed onto Fuji Crystal Archive DPII paper using a traditional photo-chemical process, then mounted and sealed on a 3 layer aluminium substrate (for superb stability and warp-resistance). Finally, a UV-protective coating is applied to protect the print. Wall-fixings are pre-fitted, so the piece is ready to hang straight away.
Please be aware that quality of this kind takes a little time. Turnaraound times vary from 7 business days for unmounted prints to 10 business days on average for canvas and aluminium mounting, after which I take delivery of the work for inspection before shipping to you. Guaranteed to be worth the wait!
