The Storr (Scottish Gaelic: An Stòr) is a rocky hill on the Trotternish peninsula of the Isle of Skye in Scotland. The hill presents a steep rocky eastern face overlooking the Sound of Raasay, contrasting with gentler grassy slopes to the west.
The Storr is prime example of the Trotternish landslip, the longest such feature in Great Britain. It is the type locality for the mineral gyrolite. The area in front of the cliffs of the Storr is known as the Sanctuary. This has a number of differently shaped rock pinnacles, the remnants of ancient landslips.
In January 2012, production of the science-fiction film Prometheus moved to the Isle of Skye, with filming taking place at the Old Man of Storr. Geographically, Scotland was once part of the land mass of North America before superimposing on itself on what is currently referred to as the UK mainland.
A 3 hour trek up this elevation provided the view of the old man and the land and seascape of the North coast of the Isle of Skye. I choose to create the artwork for its unique viewpoint and awesome beauty of Scotland.

Hahnemühle’s artists paper quality is unparalleled and authentic. The German company has knowledge of paper making since the 1880’s and is the Industries gold Standard.
Epson UltraChrome HDR pigment ink merges traditional archival ink quality with the latest high end technology.

FineArt Baryta is a bright white, high gloss paper that sets the benchmark for high colour depth, large colour gamut and image definition. This paper gives the "wow" factor particularly to black and white prints with extremely high density and finest grey tones. Using barium sulphate in the premium inkjet coating ensures the typical gloss that makes this paper a genuine replacement for traditional Baryta papers from analogue laboratories.

This fine art print will meet museum longevity requirements and has a unique extra contrasty surface with a sensual feel. The print has a total of twelve different inks, ensuring that even the minutest details are visible, and the colours appear freshly printed even after 100 years. This art paper base offers a unique "touch and feel" experience - the Hahnemuhle typical 4th dimension.

It is the artist's preference to use traditional negative film and mechanical cameras. The film is hand developed and scanned by the artist, prior to creating the art work.
