Canvas: Come Forth Old Giant

Canvas: Come Forth Old Giant


Photographer’s Profile: Dougal Nicol Landscape Photography



Canvas and Frame:

Canvases do not require separate frames, like prints do, the canvas and frame are an integral item and so are good to go and ready to hang.

The quality of the canvases is second to none.  Photographs are printed, edge to edge, onto heavy weight canvas and stretched around a 38mm deep European Pine frame. The canvas is stretch tight and folded around the sides and corners of the frame, thereby concealing the pine frame itself.   The net result is a perfectly flat, taut canvas.

The canvas is secured to the frame by galvanised staples for a secure fixing, ensuring the canvas will not slacken in time.

Further detail on canvases is available here – Canvas Box Frames.


The size of the canvas (in inches) is measured on its front face.  The sides of the canvas covering the pine frame are printed black.

Inks and Lamination:

Images are printed using genuine HP Vivera Inks, producing vibrant colours and unrivalled image quality, and then laminated to provide a crack free, water resistant, cleanable and scratch resistant finish, with up to 200 years UV protection.

The lamination provides a subtle satin look to the finished canvas.


Canvases are finished to a very high standard with brown artist’s paper tape, felt pads and are fitted with a galvanised hanger so they are ready to hang.


All canvases are securely packaged and can be shipped anywhere in the UK but cannot presently be sent overseas due to logistical difficulties. Further detail and prices for postage and packing is available – Delivery Details. Delivery of the canvas will need to be signed for.

About the Photo

The haar (sea fog) creates tremendous opportunities for photography.  However, it can be a pretty frustrating process to get the picture you desire as it can be unpredictable and change exceedingly quickly.

To take this picture, I sat for 5 hours in a cold murky soup on the banks of the Firth of Forth waiting for something to happen.  When conditions did finally break the haar went from pea and ham to consommé in the space of 10 minutes.  The 5 hours wasn’t wasted as the low visibility within the fog created its own set of photo opportunities.  However, patience was definitely the name of the game, waiting to make the most of the short window to capture the receding haar as it exposed the formwork of the Forth Rail Bridge.

In the case of this image, the haar provides a perfect natural screen of the Forth Road Bridge in the background, that whilst intriguing in its own right, wouldn’t have contributed to the composition of this photograph.
