Canvas: Rays over Ramparts


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

Edinburgh may be spoilt for choice for landscape photography, particularly given its 7 Hills forming a host of perfect vantage points, of which Carlton Hill is one.  This is one of any number of stunning views of Edinburgh Castle and the spire of the former St John’s Church (originally Victoria Hall), shot from the western aspect of Carton Hill.

From Carlton Hill and those like it around Edinburgh, there are endless options to find magic sunsets and compositions of the city’s landmarks, whatever the time year and the direction of the dipping sun.  A feature that makes the city pretty special for photography.

The composition of the final photo here, is set off by the January sunset that provides a dramatic, golden backdrop to the Castle’s silhouette.
