The Howgill Fells are among the most remote, most beautiful, and least known areas of England. Covering around 40 square miles just outside the town of Sedbergh and rising to 2000ft, they nestle between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, and are often overlooked by the crowds of ramblers and tourists flocking to those places. Those who do venture into the Howgills however cannot fail to be impressed with their majestic unspoilt beauty. I first visited here as a boy, and recently retraced the steps I took with a local guide years ago, along Carlin Gill to Black Force, on a beautiful August day, from which emerged a series of simple photographs in which the spectacular landscape speaks for itself.
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. Turnaround 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!
