Further detail on prints and frames is available here – Printing and Framing.

The complete selection of frames can be viewed here – Frame Selection.

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

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.

    We were delighted to receive a framed print of this photograph as a Christmas gift after moving into our new home in the city.  The image itself is fantastic, and the frame compliments it perfectly.  Very happy indeed!
