The vivid green mountains on the Isle of Skye taken early in the morning when the new dawn was breaking and shooting light all across the landscape. The pools of water lit up like mirrors and the fabulous texture of these ancient hills is picked out in layers of black stone.
TITLE : Land of Giants
This area on Skye is filled with dramatic peaks, the movies BFG, Macbeth and Highlander were filmed here. A landscape of ancient times, when the earth was moving in great folds and volcanic eruptions were shaping the world. To say this is the land of giants is not just a myth and legend, nearby on our local beach we have footprints from some of the enormous dinosaurs that roamed the area hundreds of thousands of years ago.
Available in other sizes and on paper.
About My Work
I believe in giving my clients beautiful artwork on luxury papers that hold their colours for a lifetime! For these special prints of my work I use dreamy, light textured Canson Canvas and the highest quality inks. I do all my own printing, having spent years learning this skill I prefer to maintain control of the colour representation at all stages to ensure you get a truly handmade image.
About My Materials
People often say that my images look like paintings because of the richness of the colours, the depth of the black and the texture of the materials I use. Canson are one of the oldest paper manufacturers in the world, they have been making paper for over 450 years in France. Founded in 1557 and printers to Louis XVI, their paper was used by Voltaire and Napoleon and the Montgolfier brothers used Canson paper to make the first hot air balloon. Canson paper was used by Picasso, Ingres, Chagal, Miro and many other artists. They have been making paper and canvas for photography since this art began over 150 years ago. Canson are Eco Friendly - they purchase paper pulp only from forests managed in a sustainable way which also makes them pretty special.
This print is available in other sizes on canvas or paper. I am happy to take custom orders, just drop me a line.
I work with professional framers in the UK and the US. If you would like a quote please let me know.

Canvases are unframed and unmounted, they need to be stretched or framed once you get them.
