Canvas: Fields of Gold


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 perhaps the first photograph I captured that gave birth to the concept, to one day portray the places we love through landscape photography.  It involved a late decision to head out with my camera and a mad dart across Edinburgh to reach an elevated vantage point to the south-east, all in time for the onset of sunset.

The last rays of the sun cast a magnificent and vibrant hue across the city that allows detail in the cityscape to be picked out.  From the port buildings of Leith, westwards across the top of Arthur’s Seat, to the distinctive skyline of the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle itself.

The fields of Dalkeith in the foreground and the hazy distant Ochil Hills north-east of Stirling, also add a real sense of depth to the vista.

All in all, I hope you can see where the inspiration for My Place in Print came from!
