Canvas: Crag and Tail Sunrise


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

This is one of my favourite images of Edinburgh.  The winter sunrise behind Arthur’s Seat creates a striking silhouette of the iconic skyline of the Royal Mile.  It can sometimes also be the very subtle and fine detail that can add wee gems of interest to the image.  In this case it may be the very bright highlights of the sun reflected in two of the Castle’s windows.

As is often true, weather conditions at the time play perhaps the most influential role in the final picture.  In this instance, and at the particular moment of the photograph, the particularly low and dark overhead clouds generate a wonderful subtle gradation of the warm colours, cast by the breaking sun’s rays.
