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 striking gothic architecture of Fettes College impresses on an average day but as the ebbing haar encircles the building, swirling around its grounds, Fettes seems as if even more from a fantasy realm.  It’s hard to believe that the twenty-first century Edinburgh streets and city life surround the college on every side!

Similar to my other forays out with my camera on misty, haar consumed days, the moment when visibility improves to capture the scene cannot be predicted.  On this occasion the haar wasn’t hanging around for long once the morning sun got a hold of it, illuminating Fettes central spire.  And once the haar breaks, it can be only minutes until it’s gone and the moment is over.  So sometimes you’ve got to be pretty quick, as was the case in this instance.  I only just made it in time to take this photo, including perching on the roof of my car, straining to get my camera lens clear of a foreground hedge!
