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

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.
