This is the closest and most easily accessible viewpoint of the major mountains to my home. It is a view of a very wild and remote area from a very accessible one; the mountains of Spidean Mialach and Gleouraich are left of centre, Creag a'Mhaim and Druim Shionnach to the right. They encircle the lovely Loch Loyne. This mountain view is not only a superb subject at sunset but it also offers some stunning light in winter at sunrise, or just after, as this image demonstrates.
Upon my arrival at this location the peaks were already well illuminated by the low winter sun against the approaching cloud and with blue sky above and I had to work quickly as cloud was slowly building over the more westerly summits. The increasingly dominating foreground stands of conifer necessitated the use of a telephoto lens to eliminate them from the composition which then immediately lended itself to an image of panoramic format. The final image was therefore constructed from a series of five overlapping exposures.
All of my prints are made to order.
My prints are painstakingly crafted and printed from only my very best images; the vast majority of which were captured to strictly observed standards using high end professional cameras and lenses, in particular the Fuji GX617 panoramic camera, one of several Canon EOS full frame digital cameras or, more recently, the highly respected market leading Nikon D850 digital camera.
Quality is maintained by respecting the relationship between original image size and final print size; optimising the level of magnification between the two ensures that my prints always contain infinite and crisp subject detail.
I produce all my prints on premium quality inkjet media that enables the extensive colour gamut, best contrast and finest nuances required for impressive pictures.
All my prints are produced on the very latest Epson printers using Ultrachrome HDR pigment inks. These printers take inkjet (giclee) technology to an entirely new level with higher colour accuracy, greater subtlety and smoother gradations. Grass and foliage is much more vivid and natural whilst orange tones in sunrises and sunsets are more dazzling.
All prints have at least a 2" (5cm) white border on all sides of the image.
