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

I wouldn’t normally have considered photographing the road crossing of the Firth of Forth, but this photograph came about quite by chance.

I had been north of Edinburgh in Fife on a summer’s evening, scoping out a few potential vantage points and locations. Spending most of the time exploring low lying coastal paths and looking south across the water to Edinburgh, I had been oblivious to the sunset that was unfolding over the hills to the west. It wasn’t until I started my journey back across the Forth Road Bridge that I really became aware of the spectacular colours streaming across the sky from the, now rapidly disappearing, sun.

Without the luxury of any time to plan, prepare and compose a shot, I frantically fell out of my car in a lay-by in South Queensferry and threw my tripod and camera together in an attempt to capture something meaningful, before all was lost below the horizon. The result was a series of very rich images that bring, perhaps an otherwise uncharismatic landmark, to life.#

This image particularly caught my attention as it adopts a more unconventional geometric composition and provides an interesting alternative to more traditional panoramic views of the bridge spanning the Forth.
