Print Size:

This is the size of the print itself (in inches), printed edge to edge, on Fuji Crystal Archive professional photographic paper. Prints are created using RGB lasers, rather than more common inkjet techniques. This produces extremely fine detail (equivalent to 4000 dpi), with 68 billion possible colours – no inkjet printer can come close to this degree of detail. It also gives an extended product lifespan far beyond that of ink or dye based prints.

Paper Type:

Photos are printed onto professional grade colour paper from the Fuji Crystal Archive range with a gloss or matt finish. Gloss paper accentuates the colour to give a punchy, rich feel. Matt paper is coated with a slightly stippled finish and gives a very natural photographic finish with subtle colour.

Titled Mount:

The last option is to have the title of the image hand written on the mount (in pencil), centrally below the print (see example). This provides a personalised and finishing touch to round off the print.

Finished Frame Sizes:

Print sizes do not include the width of the mount and frame. When purchasing a framed print, please allow for this when considering what size to buy. Smaller frames are approximately 6 inches bigger than the print and larger frames approximately 8 inches bigger.


Framed and unframed prints can be delivered anywhere in the UK.  Unframed prints can also be shipped overseas.  Further detail and prices for postage and packing is available – Delivery Details. Delivery of framed prints will need to be signed for.

About the Photo

Edinburgh, like much of Scotland, is blessed with a very diverse local climate.  This provides an abundance of conditions to capture very different photographs of the city and its places.  You’d be hard pushed to take the same shot twice!

This is particularly true for the haar (sea fog) that rolls in from the Firth of Forth.  It can ruin sunny days for tourists but it can create stunning and mysterious effects for photography.  Quite apart from how it looks it can also be quite a spectacle, especially when it moves inland as a dense wall of mist, enveloping the city streets and buildings as it rapidly advances.

Here the haar is beginning to thin gradually as the sun sets to the west.  This forms a natural filter providing a well defined view of the tinted sun as it dips towards the horizon.  It also creates a murky atmosphere, full of character, across the Old Town to Edinburgh Castle and Corstorphine Hill in the distance beyond.
